The All Progressives Congress (APC) July 31 Nationwide Ward Congresses Will Hold as Scheduled says Professor Ussiju Medaner, the National Organizing Secretary of the party who spoke exclusively with National Mail Online this afternoon.
His position aligns with that of the National Secretary Sen. John James Akpanudoedehe who issued a press release also today.”The All Progressives Congress (APC) Ward Congresses to elect party executives will hold across the country on Saturday, July 31st 2021 as scheduled”the statement said.
To this end, ward Congress Committees of the Party have already been inaugurated and delegated with the responsibility of conducting, supervising, monitoring 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 comentators, the Supreme Court’s Wednesday judgement affirming the Election victory of the Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu SAN had no bearing on the CECPC’s status and its membership.
Party members and aspirants should therefore come out enmasse and peacefully to participate in the ward Congresses, come Saturday.
