Amid protests by a majority of All Progressives Congress (APC) leaders in Oyo State over a doctored delegate list, the Chairman of the party’s Congress Committee in the state, Hon. Gambo Lawan, has again dismissed the report of postponement of the state congress.
He declared that new state executives of the party would emerge today at Obafemi Awolowo Stadium, Ibadan.
Briefing newsmen at the venue of the exercise, Gambo said: “All delegates are here in their thousands, the process has commenced and it will be concluded today as directed by Governor Mai Mala Buni-led Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee of the APC
“Security agencies and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) are on ground, monitoring the exercise.
“Accreditation of delegates is taking longer than expected. We are almost done. The final stage of the congress will commence in the next few minutes.
Gambo expressed his satisfaction with the peaceful conduct of “our party members”.
This emerged as major stakeholders of the party in the state have called for the suspension of the congress.
