The All Progressives Congress (APC) has described cases of parallel congresses in some states of the federation as exercises in futility.
The party made this known in a statement released on Monday by its National Publicity Secretary, Bolaji Abdullahi.
Abdullahi said: “The only congress recognised by the Party is that conducted in accordance with the Party constitution, which was organised by the congress committee charged by the Party to organise such congress.
“We therefore regard any so-called parallel congresses as exercise in futility and attempt to cause confusion in the Party.
“We wish to reiterate that any Party member who has any genuine grievances regarding the congresses should channel such through the Appeals Committee in their respective states.”
