  • APC ward congresses end in violence

He also alleged that instead of the LOC to allow the original results sheets and election materials be used for the exercise, it rather sent photocopies of result sheets to the wards while it withheld the original result sheets, which it meant to write the names of anointed but unpopular candidates that would be submitted to the State Congress Committee.

Earlier in the day, there was no congress activity in all the wards as the APC Chairman in the state Hilary Eke called for an emergency stakeholders meeting scheduled to hold before the congress began.

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".

The petition, submitted to the APC Wards and Local Government Appeals Committee, said the purported congress should be declared null and void, and a fresh congress conducted.

"The five delegates that will be elected at each ward would not be party executive members in their wards".

"It was later discovered that none of those being sponsored by the governor to occupy party executive positions made payment to any bank before the close of work on Friday and this makes them ineligible to participate as contestants in the Congress".

He said that the congresses would be transparent as the party had put the necessary measures in place to achieve that.

He said, "The outing that was supposed to deliver a bouncing Party Baby at the Ward Congress occasion, has resulted in Electroblastosis-Featalis; a Stillborn for the party".

He urged party members to contribute to the success of the congresses by abiding by the guidelines and rules.

Kaduna State Congresses Committee, on Monday, expressed satisfaction over the conduct of the ward congresses in spite of protests against the exercise, just as the Senators representing Kaduna Central and North, Shehu Sani and Sulaiman Hunkuyi had respectively told newsmen that the congresses did not hold in any part of the state.
