The All Progressives Congress (APC) national leadership has endorsed the outcome of last Saturday’s ward congresses in Kaduna State, describing the exercise as transparent and rancour-free.
Chairman of the Congress Committee for Kaduna, Abubakar Madibbo, at a press conference yesterday, said the congresses, which held in all the 255 wards of the state, were free and fair.
Madibbo, who was flanked by the six other members of the committee at the State Secretariat, said the state adopted consensus for the congress and it was excellently carried out without any form of violence.
“On our arrival in Kaduna after our inauguration by the National Secretariat on July 28, we met with the leader of the party in the state, Governor Nasir el-Rufai, and other party stakeholders. Later, they held their own stakeholders’ meeting too and unanimously adopted consensus as the mode for the ward congress as stipulated by the party’s constitution. We, thereafter, set up a three-man committee across the 255 wards for the affirmation, which was done yesterday, July 31, 2021.
“This committee is a seven-man committee; so we divided ourselves into three and went at least two-third of the wards in the state to monitor the process, which was transparent, free and fair. We have not received any complaint from even a single individual or group across the state. We can say that the process was 99.9 per cent successful,” he said.
