Akwa Ibom APC members fault congress
Aggrieved All Progressives Congress (APC) members in Akwa Ibom State have faulted the ongoing congresses of the party in the state.
The party said the committee set up to conduct the polls failed to follow due process.
Speaking with our correspondent in Uyo, Obongifiok Anny Asikpo, one of the aspirants for the chairmanship position of the party in the state, accused the Engr. Ezenwa-led committee of not following the guidelines enunciated by the national secretariat of the party.
He alleged that members of the other parties in the alliance, including the Congress for Progressives Change (CPC), the All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP) and others, have been left in the dark in the running of the party and accused the former Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) led by the former minister, Senator John James Akpanudoedehe, of hijacking the party machinery in the state.
Asikpo said such disposition was not good for a party with a mandate to give the ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP) a strong challenge in the upcoming contest.
“We are monitoring the process to see where they will fail so that we can have some good evidences to call them to order. We will follow all legal processes to ensure all these anomalies are corrected because if the party is not open up, nobody will join and the essence of forming the alliance will not be achieved”, he said.
