Congresses: Your allegations have no basis in facts, APC tells Okorocha

The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has told Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State that his allegations that the conduct of congresses and the inauguration of party officials in his state were done in disobedience of court orders, have no basis in facts.

The APC, while reacting through its National Publicity Secretary, Malam Bolaji Abdullahi, urged Governor Okorocha to explore internal dispute resolution mechanisms spelt out in the party constitution to address his perceived grievances.

Bolaji said that the party did not receive any court injunctions on Imo APC congresses, describing the allegations as “spurious”.

He urged the Imo State governor to desist from making those kinds of allegations that have no basis in facts.

“In conducting the Congresses across the country, in considering the outcomes of each one of them and in swearing in the respective State Chairmen, the National Working Committee (NWC) had strictly followed the guiding rules and the Constitution of the Party.

“There is always room for redress where justified, hence, we encourage the Imo State Governor to explore internal dispute resolution mechanisms spelt out by our Constitution to address his perceived grievances. While we urge compromise among party stakeholders, the party has already mandated the Deputy National Chairman (North), Sen. Lawali Shuaibu to head our reconciliation efforts following issues that arose from recently conducted ward, local government and state congresses,” a statement signed by the APC spokesman reads.
