Some members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the Katsina South senatorial district have described the Ward Congresses conducted on 5th May 2018 as a jamboree and a travesty of justice and fairness.
The aggrieved members cutting across all the 11 Local government areas of the zone, in a petition accused the committee responsible for the conduct of Wards and Local Government Congresses (W&LGCC) of flagrant violation of the Constitution of Federal Republic of Nigeria (as amended), the Electoral Act, as well as the APC Constitution .
The statement signed by Usman Umar Buhari, on behalf of the petitioners insist that the failure of the W&LGCC to appoint three (3) persons per ward, and three(3) persons per LGA to serve as Local Organizing Committee (LOC) as stipulated by the aforementioned constitutions was a deliberate violation.
They also described the handing over of election materials to Secretary to the Government of Katsina State, Dr Mustapha Inuwa, as an attempt to enforce a pre determined outcome by shutting out some eligible contestants and alien to the APC guidelines .
In a petition signed by all the aggrieved contestants and presented to the APC Wards and Local Government Appeals Committee, they called for the declaration of the purported congress held on 5th May 8, 2018 as null and void and a conduct of a fresh congress in line with constitutional prescriptions.
