The Ogun State chapter of All Progressives Congress, APC, yesterday countered the allegation that the recently conducted ward congresses of the party violated the party constitution, saying, they were duly held with full compliance with the constitution of the party.
A group led by Chairman of Ogun Central, Kunle Adesina had supposed that the congresses were not properly conducted. Adesina specifically alleged that party members who, according to them were not in the good books of the state governor, Sen. Ibikunle Amosun, were denied participation in the exercise.
However, the party, through a statement by its Publicity Secretary, Sola Lawal, said every bonafide member of the party who was available at the venues of the congresses across the state participated and voted.
“A five-man Congress Committee headed by Alhaji Bashir Machina was sent to Ogun State by the National Organ of the party as was the case in all the 36 states to conduct the congress. The group did its job and turned in its report to the national secretariat.
“Subsequently, Congress Appeal Panel also came, spent four days without a single petition filed with it. If anyone now suddenly woke up to cry marginalization it would be a mere after thought”
The party set straight allusion of factionalism within its rank stating that, if ever there was division, it ended with the 2015 election.
