National Secretary of the All Progressives Congress Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee, Senator James Akpanudoedehe has inaugurated Chairmen and Secretaries of the Appeal Committees for the local government Congresses conducted early this month.

Investigation revealed that the local government Congresses were trailed by parallel Congresses in few states chapters amidst the battle for control of the party structures amongst the ruling party chieftains.

Addressing members of the Appeal Committees on Wednesday, Senator Akpanudoedehe who had maintained that no recognition would be accorded parallel Congresses since there was no provision for such in the APC Constitution and guidelines for the exercise, said the Appeal Panels was only to allow aggrieved chieftains ventilate their grievances.

He appealed to the Committees to be fair and just in the discharge of the assignment they were saddled with.

He said: “Our quest to rebuild and reposition our Party had started in earnest with the Membership Registration Exercises, Ward Congresses and the just concluded Local Government Congresses. Of course, with the sheer magnitude of these exercises, there may be persons who could feel dissatisfied with the entire process.

“Therefore in line with the Constitution of our Party; and the operating guidelines for the LG Congresses, the Party had set up this Appeals Committee, so that such persons may approach and ventilate their grievances through this channel.

“Our Party members should not forget that this is a family affair, so as you go forth to your various states of assignment, you must ensure that fair-hearing and justice be your guiding principles.”

The National Secretary of the APCECPC restated the position of the National Secretariat of the ruling party to reprimand chieftains who institute court action against the national Secretariat or any of its state’s chapters.

“It is also important to state that the Party shall enforce discipline and full compliance with the directives of NEC with regards to those who have taken the Party to court as enshrined in Article 21D of the Party’s Constitution. Recall that the National Chairman of the CECPC, H.E. Governor Mai Mala Buni recently approved the constitution of a National Reconciliation Committee headed by Sen Abdullahi Adamu.

“The Party is grateful for your sacrifices and wishes you journeying mercies to and from your various destinations.”

Honourable Patrick Obahiagbon who spoke on behalf of members of the Committee thanked the APC for the confidence reposed in them.

He equally appealed to aggrieved chieftains to the advantage of internal mechanisms of the party for conflict resolutions rather than recourse to court cases.
