APC holds parallel congress in Ondo State

Okorocha had met with President Muhammadu Buhari in Daura and now the Vice President pushing for the cancellation of the congresses.

The Ward Congresses in the southeastern state was disrupted by violence last Saturday and the governor Rochas Okorocha has already announced that new dates will be fixed for fresh elections.

He, therefore, urged loyal party members to get prepared for the state congress, which he said would climax the party congresses, on Saturday, May 19.

He said, "I did ask the National Chairman, Chief John Oyegun, 'that where is the result and the chairman did tell me categorically that he had received the result sheet and I asked him, who submitted the result because I'm aware that the police is looking for the result sheet and the DSS too is looking for the result sheet and if the result sheet has reached the party office, then who submitted it?'".

"We are grateful for the opportunity and privilege to tell the other side of the story".

"I'm here to inform the happenings in my state". Osinbajo with documentary evidence that congress indeed held.


It was earlier reported that a peace meeting brokered by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo to resolve the crisis in the Imo State All Progressives Congress, APC, as a result of the last week's contentious ward congresses ended up in a deadlock.

Ihim said: "We call on the IGP for a thorough investigation relating to all results sheets for the 305 wards and local governments of the state".

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 chose to make the journey. It is very clear that APC has returned to the owners of the party, that is the people, " he stated.

"But here you are, this is Imo State, here we have the deputy governor of the state, the only elected senator of the south east under APC, former speaker house of assembly, Imo state, another former speaker house of assembly".

It is not taking place at the party secretariat, but at the 27 local government areas.

Billy's Indiamowei and Dr. Allison declared that the local government Congress conducted by Chief Timipre Sylva and others was fake and carried out without genuine delegate lists.
