APC fixes Monday for state congress in Edo

07 May 2014, 21:20

Benin - The All Progressives Congress (APC), Edo chapter, on Wednesday said it had fixed Monday, May 12, for its rescheduled State Congress.

The Publicity Secretary of the party, Godwin Erhahon, announced this in Benin.

Erhahon attributed the delay in conducting the Congress to non-conclusion of ward and local government congresses in the state.

He said the ward and local government congresses would be concluded on Saturday, adding,“we have met and resolved to conclude the congresses on Monday.

"Ward and local government congresses in two or three local government areas yet to be concluded will be conducted on Saturday.

“Machinery for the smooth conduct of the state congress have been put in place and we are set for its peaceful conduct on Monday.

"The national secretariat of the party had fixed Monday as deadline for the conduct of all congresses across the federation,'' he said.

On the recent defection of some members from the party to the opposition, Erhahon described the defectors as "bad heads" in the party.

He said their action was to give the APC a bad name, adding that their defection would not have negative effect on the party.

“We are happy that those who are giving us  bad name have left. Their action will not have negative effect on the party."
