All parallel congresses are efforts in futility – APC
The national leadership of All Progressives Congress (APC) on Monday, said all parallel congresses in ongoing nationwide conduct of the exercise, were efforts in futility and confusion-inducing in the party.
The party’s National Publicity Secretary, Malam Bolaji Abudullahi, made this known in a statement in Abuja while reacting to reports that some APC-controlled states had parallel congresses on Saturday.
Some of the states include where such incident was recorded included Enugu, Kwara and Delta.
Abdullahi said, “the party’s position is that there is no such thing as parallel congress.
“The only congress recognised by the party is that which was conducted in accordance with its Constitution and organised by the congress committee charged to do so.
“We therefore, regard any so-called parallel congress as an exercise in futility and attempt to cause confusion in the party.”
He said that members of the party who had genuine grievances regarding the congresses should channel such through the appeal committees in their states.
