The All Progressive Congress (APC) will go ahead with its planned congresses on Saturday nationwide.
This is contained in a statement by the secretary of the Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC), John Akpanudoedehe in Abuja on Thursday.
Mr Akpanudoedehe said the July 31 date remains sacrosanct despite calls in some quarters for the suspension of the exercise.
“Ward Congress Committees of the party has already been inaugurated and delegated with the responsibility of conducting, supervising, monitoring and giving feedback to the Party on the outcome of the scheduled Ward Congresses,” the APC mouthpiece said.
“The 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.
“While it is not our intention to join issues with these commentators, the Supreme Court in its Wednesday judgment affirming the Election victory of the Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu SAN had no bearing on the CECPC’s status and its membership,” he added, urging party faithful to participate peacefully during the exercise.
