The aggrieved members, in a petition, accused the committee responsible for the wards and local government congresses (W&LGCC) of violation of the Nigerian constitution (as amended), Electoral Act, and the APC constitution.

This was as Governor Rochas okorocha's son-in-law, Mr Uche Nwosu, said that there was a swap of congress committee that suppose to conduct ward congresses in the state.

The Chairman also alleged that the Appeal committee has deliberately refused to report most of the complaints of the congresses which according to him was done with the intention to achieve their dubious motives.

"We met with the APC stakeholders at the party secretariat after which we constituted three-member congress committees for all the wards and gave them all the needed materials for the exercise, promptly. And we want them to properly hand over". It is an impressive exercise in democracy at the local level.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has reacted to the ward congresses held all over the country. "We can not trust this panel anymore to organise free and fair congress and be just to everyone, and we took a decision that we will reject this congress panel".

The incident occurred on Saturday before the APC ward congress.

It was claimed that the congress committee that was suppose to conduct congress in Imo state, were moved to Anambra state.

"It must be noted that even those who collected the forms were already programmed for disqualification as the guidelines for the conduct of the congresses, stipulates that all aspirants must return the forms 24 hours before the date of the congresses".

"I am receiving reports from all the 255 wards showing that the new APC leadership in the wards are emerging in a peaceful and orderly manner".

"It was later discovered that none of those being sponsored by the governor to occupy party executive positions made payment to any bank before the close of work on Friday and this makes them ineligible to participate as contestants in the Congress".
