Okorocha, Imo APC leaders meet Osinbajo — APC ward Congresses

Any party congress organized by the constituted authorities is final.

Adekunle-Ajayi described reports of parallel congresses in Ebonyi as misleading, lacking in truth and without merit.He said that the congresses that held across the 13 local government areas were peaceful and successful, affirming that he supervised the congresses in five local council areas across the three senatorial districts of the state.

The main opposition party said Nigerians watched with bewilderment and disbelief as "indescribable savagery, cruelty, violence, shooting and bloodletting" enveloped the APC ward congress, which ordinarily should be a civil interaction among party members.

But in a swift reaction, Odigbo dismissed claims of parallel congresses in the state, insisting that the committee adhered strictly to the guidelines for the congress as laid down by the party's National Working Committee (NWC).Meanwhile, groups and individuals have endorsed former governor of Cross River State, Clement Ebri, for the National Chairmanship position of the party in its next convention.

During the ward congress, parallel congress were reported to have been conducted in Borno, Ondo, Kogi, and Kano. The only congress recognised by the party is that conducted in accordance with the party constitution, which was organised by the congress committee charged by the party to organise such a congress.

Dododo said, "When I realised this, I made other arrangements only for us to discover that he was part of it".

He said that exhibits recovered from them included: 68 APC result sheets, six APC Local Government Area result sheets, 130 APC delegates nomination forms and six LGA APC ward officers and delegates list.

The governor, while addressing his loyalists on Sunday, announced that there would be no LG congress in the state until the crisis of the ward congress was rectified.

Justice Nnamdi Dimgba, in the two judgments, held that the suits had become hypothetical, academic and spent.

Making his appeal to President Buhari, Abe said the party has reached a point where it must take a decision to "either live up to the core values of President Buhari and do the right thing or abandon our values and destroy our soul in order to please man".

In his speech, the Chairman of the Ward and Local Government Congress committee, Dr. Ebikeme Adebayo Dawodu, said though he was skeptical of coming to Bayelsa for the supervory role for the ward and local government Congresses, " i came here with the notion that we're coming to a problematic state and some of us almost said no to putting ourselves in danger but we summoned courage, spoke to people and decided to make the journey.
