The Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has said the ward congresses scheduled for Saturday would go on as planned.
The ruling party, on Thursday in a statement by Secretary of CECPC, Senator John Akpanudoedehe in Abuja, said the July 31 date for the congress will not change .
TheFact Nigeria gathered that there has been concerns about the upcoming congresses following the Supreme Court judgment on the Ondo governorship election.
Akpanudoedehe said the clarification is necessary following personal interpretations and opinion by some chieftains of 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.
