APC Denies Parallel Congresses

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has denied the holding of parallel congresses in some states, describing any such exercise not sanctioned by it as illegal and of no effect.

While reacting to reports of parallel congresses in a couple of states during its last Saturday’s local government congress, the National Publicity Secretary of APC, Bolaji Abdulahi, said the party only recognises the congress conducted by committees it charged with the responsibility.

There were reports of disputes in the APC’s ward and local government congresses held in the last two weeks which resulted in parallel congresses.
