Parallel congress exercise in futility - APC

Parallel congress exercise in futility - APC

The parralel Congresses were however conducted in a peaceful and non-violent manner with huge turn out of party delegates and supporters.

"The National Chairman of the party, Chief John Oyegun had also told Nigerians that the local government congresses of the party will be on hold pending the outcome of the report of the Appeal panel on Imo ward congresses".

The result, which was declared by the returning officer, Inabaraton Ebi, showed that Tonye Daniel Okokuro emerged the Yenagoa APC Chairman with a total vote of 350 out of the 370 votes cast.

"Since its emergence, the APC and its leaders have continued to drag our nation towards a state of anarchy by engaging in actions that instigate bloody conflicts and breakdown of law and order among Nigerians, including in their fold as a party".

Dododo said, "When I realised this, I made other arrangements only for us to discover that he was part of it".

Binabo, who read a speech on behalf of the aggrieved leaders of the party, accused Chief Timipre Sylva of setting a unsafe presidency within the APC by single handedly hyjacking the party for his personal interest.

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. This party must distance itself from the show of shame that is now going on in Rivers State. The only congress recognised by the party is that conducted in accordance with the party constitution, which was organised by the congress committee charged by the party to organise such congress.

According to the Force Headquarters image maker, "They were arrested for being in possession of ward congress materials that belong to Imo State". The APC more than ever before in Bayelsa state is poised to take over the reins of government in this state.

It added: "From the rascally attempt to overrun a court of competent jurisdiction in Port Harcourt, Rivers State to halt the wheel of justice, the burning of their own secretariat in Owerri, Imo state, the gruesome murder of their own members in Lagos and Oyo States to the malignant disputation and lust for power by its leaders across the nation, it is clear that the APC is not organic but a soulless mob without any form of conscience and integrity; an "evil wind that blows no good".

The judge noted that he had taken "judicial notice" of the fact that the party had conducted its ward congresses on April 5, and the Local Government congress on May 12, across the nation.

"I didn't come for this meeting, " he said.

"I think by our presentations we have successfully deflated all the lies that have been peddled all over the country and within the state. Last week we started the journey and it's a long one but there's prosperity at the end, let's stay together and be united". We have the chance now to correct things and it is to stay united behind our leaders, there will be hard times ahead.
