Lagos APC Group Decries Modalities For Ward Congress
The Lagos4Lagos Movement within the Lagos State All Progressives Congress (APC) has decried the procedures and guidelines for Saturday’s ward congress.
The Convener of the group, Olajide Adediran , who addressed newsmen on Friday at Ikeja, alleged that the National Ward Congress Committee, headed by Mohammed Dangiyadi, was biased.
Adediran said that the national committee ought to have formed a local working electoral committee to work with, to make its work easier in the 245 wards in Lagos State.
“The congresses will hold tomorrow but till now we don’t know the electoral committee members or even the contestants. The venues are also not clear.
“The guideline said there must be forms for anyone who wants to contest, but we have not seen any single form, despite paying for same and having our payment evidence.
We even showed the chairman a list of our intending contestants across the 245 wards, to express our readiness for this congress.
“How do we hold a congress/election without knowing the members of the electoral committee and even aspirants?
“The committee chairman said he has no business with the list of contestants, but who are the aspirants you are conducting the election for if you don’t have forms with you at this time,” he said.
According to him, it is very obvious they are scared of the competition, but the group will go ahead with the ward congress on Saturday because they have paid for nomination forms into the party’s coffers to show readiness and seriousness.
He called on the group members in the 245 wards to come out on Saturday and file behind their officials to be voted for.
“When we are done, we will submit our list and payment pieces of evidence to the national office.
“We will also seek redress in the court if we are not satisfied with the congress outcome because it is our right and we are fully prepared to give all it takes to assert it,” Adediran said.
Reacting, APC Lagos Chapter Spokesman, Seye Oladejo, said that members of the party knew that forms could be obtained from the party secretariat.
Oladejo urged those who need the forms to proceed to the appropriate venue to get one.
