Over 110,000 members of the All Progressives Congress Party (APC) will participate in the ward congress scheduled to hold in Abia State today.
State interim chairman of APC, Donatus Nwankpa, said the election was part of the party’s step towards repositioning itself ahead of the 2015 general election.
He said the election would be peaceful and the results credible and fair.
Nwankpa said: “Whatever will be the outcome today, it will be a way of giving life to the party, a new mentality, a new approach and springboard towards our desire to make a change in 2015.
“We are optimistic that the new executive to be elected will enthrone the new government in Abia State”.
The APC chieftain advised members to conduct themselves in an orderly manner and shun acts capable of jeopardising a peaceful exercise, even as he expressed optimism in the Sunday Akere-led committee to perform well.
His words: “Our party members should be disciplined, law abiding, and give people a level-playing field to test their popularity. I hope that the five-man congress committee will do its job without fear or favour”.
