No APC ward congress in Rivers - Senator Abe

A statement by the Special Adviser, Communication and Strategy to the Governor, Mr. Bolaji Tunji, quoted the governor as saying that feelers from the state's five zones suggested that the exercise went without hitches.

While describing the Saturday nationwide congresses as peaceful, APC also commended its who served in the congress committees for their dedication and impartiality.

According to him, APC is poised to entrench the principle of internal democracy in order to have a stronger party that can take over the state in 2019.

Addressing journalists on Sunday, Mr Almakura said he chose to cancel the exercise when he observed that the whole thing had turned violent. That is what we have been preaching and I'm happy that the players have embraced peace. "Thank God all have been settled now and we have had a peaceful outing today (yesterday)". We have facts of a successful election, including the ward of Senator Magnus Abe and we will make this documented evidences open to the press to show a successful congress election across the state.

As at the time of filing this report, the congress was ongoing in wards across Ibarapa, Oke-Ogun, Ogbomoso and Ibadan Zones.

"We therefore call on all party members to remain law abiding and where there are issues, they should seek redress through the appeal committees in their respective states", the statement also read in part.

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.

At the Ward 9 Ibadan North Local Government Council congress which held at C&S New Eden Primary School, Mokola, members were sighted casting their votes while party officials monitored proceedings. The membership of the party is growing in leaps.

"The claim is spurious and unfounded. This is not good for the image of our party in Oyo State".
