CALABAR—THE leadership of All Progressives Congress, APC, in Cross River State has rejected the conduct of another state congress, saying that the exercise was shrouded in secrecy and in breach of the party’s constitution.
State Chairman of the party, Mr Etim John, in a statement, yesterday, in Calabar said there was a subsisting court order suspending the conduct of another congress in the state until the hearing of the substantive suit which is before an Abuja High Court.
“The purported state congress was shrouded in secrecy and there was no sale of forms to contestants which contravenes our party’s constitution. Therefore, the exercise was a nullity,” John said.
He noted that prior to the congress, there was a stakeholders meeting where it was decided that the party, as a law abiding body, would obey the court order and not participate in any congress.
“Therefore, any congress by any one, group or agents remains a null and void and the party is still intact under the leadership of Pastor Usani Usani and the State Chairman, Mr Etim John.”
The statement called on party supporters and faithful to disregard the congress and continue to work as one in support of President Mohammadu Buhari and his government.
