APC Ward Congresses: Appeal com'tte begins sitting Monday

Lagos Police Commissioner issues warning to politicians

Senator Magnus Abe has claimed that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) did not hold congress in Rivers state.

A member of the party who does not want to be quoted told our correspondent at Ejeme-Aniogor that most of the party leaders were able to reach a consensus, adding however that "since the harmonised list appear not to have favoured some bigwigs who are eying elective offices in the 2019 election, they chose to organise their own congresses in some wards in Aniocha South where they feel that they have some presence".

The first among the aspirants to speak out his mind just before the commencement of the ward congresses in Gombe was Abubakar Habu Mu'azu who expressed satisfaction with the conduct of the congresses.

The Wards and Local Government Elections Committee chairman pointed out that even the security agencies could affirm to the fact that there were elections in Rivers State.

She accused the media of not covering their congress, adding that they are now compiling the result for onward submission to APC national headquarters, an indication that the fictionalisation of the party will continue.

The Delta State Chapter of the Peoples' Democratic Party (PDP) has condemned in strong terms the gruesome and deliberate murder of Mr. Jeremiah Oghoveta, a Chairmanship Candidate, from Ward 10, Otu-Jeremi, Ughelli South Local Government Area, of Delta State.

Mr Abubakar has not officially provided any reason for his boycott of the congress amidst speculations he is a loyalist of Mr Kwankwaso.

The party described the exercise as "peaceful", while commending members who served in the congress committees "for their dedication and impartiality".

A correspondent of NAN who visited Limancin-Kona, Kwarbai A, Kwarbai B, Kaura, Gyallesu, Kufena, Muchia, Chikaji, Jama'a, Samaru and Bomo wards among others reports that many party members were gathered at designated areas waiting for take-off of the exercise.

The State Governor, Aminu Masari, accompanied the President to the Bayajjida Model Primary School in Daura, venue of the congress.

Mr Ganduje was deputy to Mr Kwankwaso when the latter was governor.
