APC Inaugurates Congress Appeal Committees

apc-logoThe All Progressives Congress (APC) has inaugurated its Congress Appeal Committees to look into grievances that may arise from the states, local government and ward congresses conducted by the party before its National Convention slated for May 24.

This was made known by the Interim National Secretary of the party, Tijjani Musa Tumsah, who said the committees were inaugurated for all the 36 states of the federation including Abuja.

Tumsah explained that the committees were inaugurated for 24 states earlier because of some grey areas which resulted from the congresses held in the remaining 12, but that it was later decided that all the committees for all the states should be inaugurated as most of the issues are being looked into in the affected states.

“The committees have all been inaugurated and they will all report and start work immediately tommorow (Tuesday) after the Easter break and the state congresses will be conducted soon, which means that we are gradually moving towards our National Convention and we hope to be there peacefully despite the series of drawbacks we had in the congresses”, he stated.

The APC scribe stressed that the appeal committees were charged with the responsibility of addressing all issues concerning the state congresses.

He said each state will have a committee to undertake the task independently and report to the party’s national secretariat.

Meanwhile, a source at the party’s secretariat has revealed that each state appeal committee consists of a Chairman, Secretary and a member. He added that all decisions taken by the committee must be agreed to by the three members of the committee.

He, however, said they can only decide on issues relating to wards and local government congresses and forward recommendation on all matters concerning states congresses to the national secretariat where it will be decided by a higher committee.
