The ruling All Progressive Congress APC has vowed to hold the Saturday’s ward congresses to elect party executives will hold across the country on as scheduled.
The position of the party was revealed by the Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) of the party Senator John Akpanudoedehe in Abuja
According to the ruling party, Akpanudoedehe, the clarification became necessary due to personal interpretations and opinion by some chieftains on the Supreme Court judgement on the Ondo governorship election.
According to him: “Ward Congress Committees of the party has already been inaugurated and delegated with the responsibility of conducting, supervising, monitoring and giving feedback to the Party on the outcome of the scheduled Ward Congresses.
“The clarification is against the backdrop of personal opinions being expressed by some individuals on the status of the APC Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC ) and its capacity to conduct the Congresses.
“While it is not our intention to join issues with these commentators, the Supreme Court in its Wednesday judgment affirming the Election victory of the Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu SAN had no bearing on the CECPC’s status and its membership.”
The party urged members and aspirants to come out en masse and peacefully participate in the ward congresses.
