The Chairman of the All Progressive Congresses (APC) Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC), Mai Mala Buni, yesterday said the party has set machineries in motion to address the anomalies arising from the last Saturday Ward congresses held across the country.
A statement issued yesterday by his Director General, Press and Media Affairs, Mamman Mohammed, Buni said also that the exercise recorded huge success and was held under a substantial peaceful environment.
Buni, while congratulating party faithfuls over the success of the Ward congresses, assured members that their choice of leaders at the ward Congress and indeed, subsequent congresses will be respected.
The statement said “I wish to congratulate us all for the peaceful and successful conduct of the ward Congress.
“The massive turn out of members in the Congress reflects the success of the membership registration and revalidation exercise.
“It also reflects the unity and confidence of our members in the repositioned APC and its leadership” Buni said.
“I want to assure our members that their choice of leaders at the ward Congress and indeed, subsequent congresses will be respected.
“The party has put some measures in place to check and rectify anomalies arising from the Congress.
‘We are committed to building a strong internal democracy to give the party a strong leadership that are genuinely elected by the people”, he said.
According to the chairman, the congresses will give ownership of the party to the members through the bottom-top approach.
Gov. Buni urged aggrieved parties to seek redress through constituted channels in the party.
“We will be fair, just and transparent in handling every complaint for justice to be done and the people’s choice respected” he said.
The Chairman assured that the Caretaker Committee will review the just concluded ward Congress to improve on the forthcoming local and state government congresses.
