Akwa Ibom APC elects delegates for non-national convention
The Akwa Ibom State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has elected three delegates from each of the council areas in preparation for its non-elective national convention to be held later this year.
It assured the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration of its loyalty. The Acting State Publicity Secretary, Eyo Bassey, in a statement yesterday, said as a requirement for the conduct and participation in the non-elective national convention, it conducted a state congress for the selection of three delegates from each council area ahead of the exercise.
It said although there were a few cases of disaffection with the emergence of certain candidates at the congress, it would resolve such complaints amicably.
The party expressed dissatisfaction with the activities of some disgruntled elements bent on creating division and disparaging the party for their own selfish interests.
The party assured its members that those behind the anti-party activities would be brought to book.
The statement also commended the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), the five-man Abuja Congress Supervisory Committee headed by Gideon Meffor and the security agents for providing necessary security for a hitch free exercise in the 31 councils.
