Nigeria: APC Crisis Deepens as 10 States Hold Parallel Congresses

The crisis in the ruling All Progressives Congress in Nigeria showed no sign of receding as violence marred the state congresses of the party held saturday nationwide, with 10 states hosting parallel congresses.

The states where factions of the party worked at cross-purposes were Lagos, Kwara, Delta, Rivers, Ondo, Enugu, Kogi, Bayelsa, Oyo, and Ebonyi.

However, APC has said any congress not conducted by the committee appointed by the party is illegal and whatever result it generated is null and void.

Speaking with reference to the controversies being generated by conduct of parallel congresses by aggrieved stakeholders in some states during the congress, the National Publicity Secretary, Bolaji Abdulahi, said as far the APC was concerned there was nothing like parallel congress.
