Over Jan 11 LG election

Peter ObiThe All Progressives Congress (APC) has disclosed that they are carring out upward review of activities that would ensure that the party ends up with no fewer than 23 state governors, in the efforts to further galvanize and strengthen the party in the country.

The party, the Nigerian Tribune gathered, has also gone ahead to challenge in court the local government election scheduled for January 11,2014 in Anambra State. The action was filed on Tuesday, January 7, 2014.

Senator Chris Ngige revealed these at Finotel Awka, on Wednesday, during the inauguration of the party’s interim management committee to oversee its affairs in the state.

The interim committee was composed of nominees from the various parties that merged to form APC, including the ANPP and ACN, among others, headed by the former chairman of the defunct Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), Chief Amechi Obidike, while a nominee from the defunct All Nigerian People’s Party (ANPP), Mr Emmanuel Chikelo was the Secretary.

Olisaemeka Onyeka was elected the Organising Secretary, as became the Woman Leader. Their choice was then ratified by an Electoral College and subsequently inaugurated by the Deputy National Chairman, South-East, who was represented by the Deputy National Youth Leader, Chief Uzoma Igbonwa.

Ngige noted that the party declined to participate in the forthcoming council election because of the ambiguity and confusion over which of the three circulating different voters registers in the state was valid and authentic.

He said that others who were hitherto sitting on the fence had to back out of the council election, because of the faulty voters’ register and other serious matters.
