The acting state chairman of APC, Engr Ade Adetimehin has dismissed as phoney alleged congresses conducted by some aggrieved individuals whom he said were bent on tarnishing the party's credibility.

The All Progressives congress (APC) has declared any form of parallel congress held during any of its congresses as an exercise in futility.

Abdullahi said this in response to media requests on "parallel congresses" in some states.

Okorocha also in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Sam Onwuemeodo, on Monday in Owerri asked the loyal party members to relax, assuring them that the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party would fix new dates for the ward and LG congresses of the party in the state.

"We shall not repeat any other congress in the state".

The State Secretary of the party, Hon. The only congress recognised by the party is that conducted in accordance with the party constitution, which was organised by the congress committee charged by the party to organise such congress.

He explained that the panel's secretary claimed that the result sheets were missing.

In a related development, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffery Onyeama, said yesterday that he resorted to parallel congress in his Udi Local Council because submitting to the Ikechukwu Odigbo-led congress committee would deny his supporters participation in the exercise.Onyeama, who alongside Presidential Assistant on Judicial Reforms, Juliet Ibekaku, gathered some persons at Udi Comprehensive School, where they allegedly appointed delegates to the national convention on Saturday, said his supporters were denied congress materials.

National Chairman of the Northern All Progressives Congress Youths Movement, Salisu Abubakar, said: "Ebri is a man of repute who has paid his dues for the advancement of the party and the country at large". After all the noise, we shall place them where they should be.

". It was very peaceful last week, ward congresses came and went and this week, we have even improved on the record of last week".

"We felt it was undemocratic and unconstitutional and we told him so to his face", he added. He said the party appeared to have abandoned the decision to extend the officials' tenure.

I have chose to address you this afternoon because it has become clear that my party, the All Progressives Congress, has reached a point where it must take a decision either to live up to the values of our leader, President Muhammadu Buhari, and do the right thing or abandon our values and destroy our soul in order to please man.

In his speech, the Chairman of the Ward and Local Government Congress committee, Dr. Ebikeme Adebayo Dawodu, said though he was skeptical of coming to Bayelsa for the supervory role for the ward and local government Congresses, " i came here with the notion that we're coming to a problematic state and some of us almost said no to putting ourselves in danger but we summoned courage, spoke to people and chose to make the journey.
