More results released from APC state congresses

28 April 2014, 11:06

Abuja - More results of the Saturday's nationwide state congresses of the All Progressives Congress have been released.

In Kogi, Hadi Ametuo emerged as the chairman.

Ametuo, a former state chairman of the defunct ACN was elected by affirmation at a congress of the party held in Lokoja on Saturday.

Also elected were Linus Enenche as the Secretary while Mr Ismaila Yahaya became the Treasurer of the party.

Other officers of the party were also elected by affirmation during the congress which was witnessed by officials of the INEC.

In his acceptance speech, the newly elected chairman promised to quickly reconcile all aggrieved members of the party, describing the party as a family.

Ametuo also promised to lead the party to victory in all the elections in the state in 2015.

Similarly in Anambra, Emeka Ibe was returned unopposed as the chairman of the party in the state while Chukwuma Agufugo and Okelo Madukife were also returned as Secretary and Public Relations Officer by consensus.

The congress was monitored by the Independent National Electoral Commission and some officials of the party at the national level.

However, in Cross Rivers, the congress was postponed indefinitely following alleged discrepancies in some wards and local government congresses of the party.

Chairman of the State Congress Committee, Dr.Ernest Osifo, announced the postponement during a meeting with stakeholders in Calabar.

He said the party had resolved to introducel a credible electoral  procedure following alleged irregularities reported in 59 out of the 196 wards as well as in seven of the 18 local Local Government areas of Cross River.

He said the postponement of the  congress would  enable the committee to address grey areas in the affected wards and council areas and ensure that the rescheduled state congress was transparent.

He said that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had also expressed concern over the irregularities and warned against the consequences of going ahead with the exercise without addressing the grey areas.
