 The chairman of the committee in charge of the just concluded All Progressive Congress (APC) ward congresses in Kogi State, Bestman Nze-Jombo has said that there was no parallel ward congresses in the state to the best of his knowledge. 

 
Nze-Jombo said this during a press conference in Lokoja on Wednesday against the backdrop of the claims of the State APC Chairman, Haddy Ametuo and Audu/Faleke-led group that the results of their congresses conducted across the 239 wards were the most authentic and credible. 
 
He maintained that any other congress held outside the one its committee organised and supervised would not be accepted by the national body of the party. 
 
"When we reached Lokoja the state capital on Friday, a day to the congress,  we called for a stakeholders meeting having spoken with Haddy Ametuo four times but at the meeting he did not show up. 
 
"And during the wards congress proper, the committee did not see Haddy Ametuo except the Acting State chairman of APC Ibrahim Ahovi Salami who stayed with us and assisted us in conducting the congress. 
 
"Apparently in politics, it is only the people who participated in an election that can win such election. Nobody can be a winner in an event you did not partake", he said. 
 
He said the ward congresses were conducted peacefully across all the 239 wards in the state and that all parties were given level playing field during the exercise.
