Umuahia - The rescheduled local government congress of the All Progressive Congress took place on Monday in Abia, with16 out of the 17 Local Government areas experiencing no violence.

The outgoing Publicity Secretary of the party, Ben Godson, said the exercise was successful in Ukwa East Local Government Area.

He described the exercise as “generally peaceful” in his area, saying that the outcome of the congress across the state was still being collated at the party secretariat.
