The national leadership of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has said the party will not recognize any parallel state congress, organised by any factional group of the party in the country.
A spokesman for the party, Bolaji Abdullahi, stated this while addressing party faithful at the state congress held at the Banquet Hall in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital on Saturday.
He noted that the National Working Committee of the party would only acknowledge the congresses conducted by the committees set up by the national leadership of the party.
“I have only one message; you may have heard that some people are gathered somewhere, saying that they are organising another congress.
“I want to reaffirm that the only Congress that is recognised by our party, is the congress organised by the committee that the party has sent; any other Congress is an exercise in futility,” Abdullahi said.
Meanwhile, the Oyo APC state congresses were conducted with a division in the members of the committee set up by the National Working Committee of the party.
