APC declares all parallel congresses an exercise in futility


The All Progressives congress (APC) has declared that any form of parallel congress held during any of its congresses is an exercise in futility.

This was declared by Bolaji Abdullahi, National Publicity Secretary of the party, in a statement on Monday in response to media requests on “parallel congresses” in some states.

THEWILL recalls that parallel congresses were reported at both the ward and local government congresses in Borno, Ondo, Oyo, Kogi and Kano.

Responding, Abdulahi declared in the statement below:

Re: Parallel Congress

I have received media requests on the issue of so-called parallel congresses in a couple of States.

The Party position is that there is no such thing as parallel congress. 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.

We therefore regard any so-called parallel congresses as exercise in futility and attempt to cause confusion in the Party.

We wish to reiterate that any Party member who has any genuine grievances regarding the congresses should channel such through the Appeals Committee in their respective states.
