Lagos - The All Progressives Congress (APC), Lagos State Chapter, said on Thursday that it was prepared to conduct a hitch-free State Congress on April 26.
The Chairman, Lagos State Chapter of APC, Henry Ajomale, said that the congress would be strictly limited to state delegates, that would not be fewer than 2 200 in number.
"We have done everything possible to make it a hitch-free congress and those who are coming will strictly be the accredited delegates.
"The delegates are not part of those who went for the congress at the local government level," he said.
Ajomale said that members of the State House of Assembly, the House of Representatives, senators, governors and their deputies, would be given automatic access to the congress.
The chairman said that no fewer than 2 200 delegates, comprising of five from each ward, would be attending the congress.
He also said that INEC had been invited to witness the congress, adding that the five-man team appointed by the national supervisory committee of the APC would oversee the event.
"The five-man team is headed by Garuba Abari," he said.
Ajomale said that the team was trying to see if the delegates could come up with consensus candidates among them, adding if they could not, the team would resort to balloting.
The chairman said that about 36 positions would be declared vacant, to be contested for on that day.
He, however, said he was not certain how many people would be contesting for each position.
