Confusion has continued to brew over the scheduled local government congress of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Imo State, today.
The confusion started with the rejection of the planned congress by state lawmakers of the APC extraction led by Speaker of the House of Assembly, Mr. Acho Ihim.
Also present when the House members led by Speaker Acho Ihim were briefing journalists yesterday, were members of the House of Representatives from Imo state, Chike Okafor, representing Okigwe South constituency and Nnanna Igbokwe, representing Ahiazu and Ezinihitte Mbaise constituency.
Ihim said: “We call on the IGP for a thorough investigation relating to all results sheets for the 305 wards and local governments of the state.
“We are worried that the state chapter of APC has announced the holding of local government congress on Monday (today) 14th May, 2018, contrary to the earlier pronouncement of the national chairman.
“We further request that a new date be fixed for the conduct of wards and state congresses, as time is of essence in this matter.
“We call on the national chairman and national leadership of APC to call off any purported congress tomorrow (today) Monday, 14th May, 2018 or any other day until all issues relating to ward congresses in Imo state are resolved.”
