APC mocks Amosun, Aregbesola, others, says parallel congresses mere naming ceremonies.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has congratulated its teeming members on the successful conduct of the Party's State Congresses across the country.

The party has equally described parallel congresses held by the likes of former governors, Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State, Aregbesola of Osun State, Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State among others as nothing but mere naming ceremonies.

The National Secretary, APC Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC), Sen. James Akpan Udoedehe, in a statement said: "In adherence to internal democracy and the charge by the leader of our great party, President Muhammadu Buhari that the party be returned to the people, card-carrying party members came out en-masse to elect executives who will take charge of APC affairs accross the states for the next four years. 

"However, our attention has been drawn to reports of so called and purported "parallel" Congresses. To borrow the phrase of one of our esteemed governors, such "parallel" Congresses are mere naming ceremonies. 

"The purported "parallel" Congresses are futile activities and very strange to the party, our Constitution and the guidelines for the conduct of the State and other Congresses. 

"Only exercises conducted by duly inaugurated State Congress Committees are recognised by the Party. The APC leadership will not hesitate to take adequate and lawful measures against any person or interest sabotaging the collective Party's interest and efforts to achieve peace and unity in our great party". 

Akpan Udoedehe noted that where contestations exist, adequate conflict resolution measures have been put in place to address them. The party has Appeal committees for every Congress. 

He said the Party has inaugurated the National Reconciliation Committee under the chairmanship of Sen. Abdullahi Adamu, former Governor of Nasarawa state to reconcile all differences among stakeholders and party members.
