The All Progressives Congress in Adamawa State has postponed Saturday’s ward congress of the party due to late arrival of materials.
The Interim Committee Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Salihu Baba-Ahmed, made this known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Yola on Saturday.
“Materials were brought yesterday (Friday) which is late. We have scheduled a meeting of stakeholders by 4pm today to fix a new date for the congress.
“I want to use this opportunity to further urge our party members to continue to bear with us and remain calm as everything possible will be done to ensure hitch free exercise,” Baba-Ahmed said.
A former Chairman of defunct CPC, Alhaji Ibrahim Waziri, who spoke on the development, said that with late arrival of materials, the congress was not feasible.
Waziri said this was also because the people that paid for forms to participate in the congress were yet to obtain the forms.
“Those that paid for forms were yet to obtain the forms. We need about two to three days to enable them obtain the forms, fill and return them.
“We will use the meeting of stakeholders today to fix an appropriate date for the congress,” he said.
