The Congress Appeal Committee set up by the All Progressives Congress (APC) to review petitions from penultimate Saturday’s ward congresses, has received petitions from 15 states so far.
It was gathered in Abuja that petitions were received from Kwara, Osun, Lagos, Enugu, Akwa Ibom, Niger, Kano and Ogun States, among others.
Of the 33 states where congresses were held, only 21 submitted their reports as at close of business on Wednesday.
Congresses were not held in three states namely Zamfara, Bayelsa and Anambra.
National Secretary of the Caretaker/ Extraordinary National Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) of the APC, Senator John Akpanudoede, had while inaugurating the Appeal Panel, charged members to be fair to all parties and ensure justice was done.
Spokesperson for the Concerned APC members, Abdullahi Dauda, however, said, “For justice to be done, there should be a total review of what happened last week. There were no congresses in most of the states, people just sat down somewhere and said they had a consensus.”
