We are ready for ward congresses — APC

Gov. Wike wishes Rivers APC members peaceful congress

The former governor said that as one big family, the APC in the state had been able to resolve its differences amicably, hence the peaceful atmosphere experienced during the ward congresses.

"Why did the 7 member state election committee decided not to report to the state in good time to enable it to make adequate arrangement for the Congress, but reported on Friday evening, just a few hours to the Congress?", he asked.

This is because his effort to seek presidential intervention in cancellation of the outcome of last Saturday's Ward Congress of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state has hit a brick wall.

"All the other necessary things are ready".

The Chairman of the National Committee for Wards and Local Governments of the party in the state, Ambassador Dauda Danladi, announced this at a press conference in Gusau on Monday.

The Unity Group in the statement signed by Olatubosun lamented, "We are still in shock over what happened yesterday at Oke-Ado when the governor's men brought hundreds of thugs to maim and kill innocent people during a pre-congress briefing".

In a tweet directed at Trump, he wrote: " 'Take away credentials?' These authoritarian impulses of yours are anti-American". The president continues to hold joint press conferences when heads of state visit the White House.

Salami told newsmen that each ward would produce 27 executive members at the end of the exercise.

The while reacting to the confusion that trailed the conduct of the congresses in Bauchi State called for the total cancellation of the purported exercise to have been carried out on Saturday 5th May 2018.

He, however, said that they would lodge a formal complaint to the APC Congress Committee, the party's National Working Committee and other relevant organs of the party.

He observed that, for the Organizing Secretary of the Party, Izunaso, to be arguing with Okorie, originally sent for the conduct of the congresses, over who among them was in custody of the sensitive materials in question was despicable, adding that it showed they never wanted the congress to be successful from the start.

Hunkuyi, however, urged the Oyegun-led executive to urgently declare the congress a nullity and order for fresh, transparent and democratic process.
