The All Pro­gres­sives Congress (APC) has in­au­gu­rated Congress Ap­peal Com­mit­tees to look into grievances that may arise from the states, lo­cal govern­ment and ward con­gresses con­ducted by the party be­fore its Na­tional Con­ven­tion.

In­terim na­tional sec­re­tary of the party, Ti­j­jani Musa Tum­sah, who spoke with Daily Trust yes­ter­day, said the com­mit­tees were in­au­gu­rated for all the 36 states of the fed­er­a­tion in­clud­ing Abuja.

He said that the com­mit­tees were in­au­gu­rated for 24 states ear­lier be­cause of some un­re­solved is­sues aris­ing from the con­gresses held in the re­main­ing 12, but it was later de­cided that all the com­mit­tees for all the states should be in­au­gu­rated as most of the is­sues are be­ing re­solved in the af­fected states.

“The com­mit­tees have all been in­au­gu­rated and they will all re­port and start work im­me­di­ately tom­morow (Tues­day) af­ter the Easter break and the state con­gresses will be con­ducted soon, which means that we are grad­u­ally mov­ing to­wards our Na­tional Con­ven­tion and we hope to be there peace­fully de­spite the se­ries of draw­backs we had in the con­gresses,” ,” he added.

He stressed that the ap­peal com­mit­tees mit­tees were man­dated to ad­dress all is­sues con­cern­ing cern­ing the con­gresses in the states.

He said each state will have a com­mit­tee mmit­tee to un­der­take the task in­de­pen­dently and re­port to the party’s na­tional sec­re­tariat.

A source at the party’s sec­re­tariat at in­formed Daily Trust that each state ap­peal com­mit­tee it­tee con­sists of a Chair­man, Sec­re­tary and a mem­ber. ber. He added that all de­ci­sions taken by the com­mit­tee mmit­tee must be en­dorsed by the three mem­bers s of the com­mit­tee.

He how­ever said, they can only de­cide on is­sues con­cern­ing wards and lo­cal cal govern­ment con­gresses and send rec­om­men­da­tion on all mat­ters con­cern­ing states con­gresses to the na­tional sec­re­tariat where it will be de­cided by a higher com­mit­tee.
