The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has vowed not to recognise any parallel state congress organised by any factional group of the party.
Spokesman of the party, Bolaji Abdullahi, said this on Saturday in reaction to the parallel congresses held in some states of the federation.
He noted that the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party would only acknowledge the congresses conducted by the committees set up by the national leadership of the party.
While the election has been peaceful in some states, parallel exercises took place in states like Lagos, Kwara, Oyo, and Niger.
Reacting to the development, Abdullahi said, “I have only one message; you may have heard that some people are gathered somewhere, saying that they are organising another congress.
“I was to reaffirm that the only congress that is recognised by our party, is the congress organised by the committee that the party has sent; any other congress is an exercise in futility.”
