Ahead of this coming Saturday Nationwide State Congress of the All Progressives Congress (APC), the Appeal Panel in charge of the ward and local government congresses in Delta State has reportedly upheld the ‘unity list’ as the authentic and only recognized list for delegates for the exercise.
Reliable sources at the national headquarters of the party said the panel also dismissed the earlier results allegedly announced by the sacked chairman of the state congress committee, Alhaji Sani Dododo.
Investigation in Abuja revealed that the report submitted by the Appeal Panel led by its chairman, Barr. Folajimi Olasehinde, Dubem Moghalu (Secretary ) and Aminu Abubakar ( member ) to the National Leadership of the APC said the report was based on evidences provided to the panel.
Sources, who pleaded anonymity disclosed that based on the decision, the endorsed ‘unity list’ would be what the state congress committee will use to conduct the state congress to elect state officials of the party.
It was also gathered that the decision has put to rest alleged parallel congresses held by the two tendencies of Olorogun O’tega Emerhor and the Chief Great Ogboru/Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, as the NWC has adopted the congress result submitted by Hon. Emmanuel Chindah’s led local government and ward congress committee.
The source said: “Ahead of this Saturday State congress in Delta State, the Appeal Panel headed by Barrister Folajimi Olasehinde has submitted their report. From the report we sighted on Wednesday in APC headquarters in Abuja, the NWC only recognized the ‘unity list from Delta state.
“In this case, it is the unity list that will form the delegates that will elect the state executive at the Saturday congress. The Panel also held that Dododo having been removed as chairman has no legal backing to conduct any congress in the state. The Chief Chindah committee was the only properly authorized committee to conduct the LG congresses in Delta State.”
