The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has insisted that its ward congresses will be held on 31st July, 2021, to elect party executives.
In a statement signed by the National Secretary, Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC), Sen. John James Akpanudoedehe, on Thursday in Abuja, the party said preparation has been concluded for the exercise on Saturday.
The statement said: “This clarification is against the backdrop of personal opinions being expressed by some individuals on the status of the APC Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC ) and its capacity to conduct the Congresses following Wednesday’s Supreme Court judgment.”
The statement added that the Supreme Court judgment on Wednesday affirming the election victory of the Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu SAN had no bearing on the CECPC’s status and its membership.
The party urged party members and aspirants to come out en masse and peacefully participate in the ward congresses on Saturday.
