Congress: APC stakeholders protest alleged alteration, replacement of names

By Kadiri Abdulrahman

Some stakeholders in the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) have condemned an alleged change in the party’s leadership list in the region.

The conviction was a consequence of the parish congress recently organized by the party, in particular at the regional council of Bwari.

Ibrahim Abubakar, speaking on behalf of stakeholders, alleged that after the success of the parish congress on August 14, the final list was amended and replaced with the names of individuals who were not part of the exercise .

He located the neighborhoods of Usuma and Kubwa, where the lists were amended and several names replaced.

He added that such a fraudulent act of amending contravened the party’s constitution and posed a threat to the unity of the ruling party ahead of the 2023 election.

He urged the FCT party chairman to take urgent action to remedy the anomaly.

“The constituency congress here was monitored by officials from the Independent Election Commission (INEC) and security personnel, and the results were known to all.

“It is sad that a final exclusion list of names of successful executive members, and replaced by strange names, can be released as the final list.

“Article 21 of the statutes of our party stipulates that offenders in the event of alteration of the lists, falsification of the results or attack on internal democracy are liable to prosecution and expulsion from the party.

“Something similar happened in 2018 as we prepared for the 2019 election, and it affected our performance in that election here in the CTF. We should not allow history to repeat itself, ” he said.

He called on party members in affected neighborhoods to remain loyal to the party as efforts are made to resolve the issue.

Efforts to get the party’s state chairman to react to the CTF, Alh. Abdulmalik Usman, were unsuccessful because repeated calls on his cell phone were not answered.

The president also did not respond to an SMS asking for his reaction. (
