Niger APC members deny involvement in parallel congresses

Some members of the All Progressives Congress whose names appeared on the list of those who conducted the parallel congresses in Niger State have denied involvement.

The members, who disassociated themselves from the factional group are Mohammed Agwara, Shittu Ibrahim, Isiyaku Bosso and Jauro Tafa.

Apart from denying involvement, they also disowned the group and have pledged their loyalty to the new elected executive led by Haliru Jinkantoro.

Speaking to newsmen in Minna, Ibrahim, who led the members and a former local government chairman of the party in Gurara Local Government Area, denied complicity.

He said, “I am here to debunk the report of involvement in a parallel congress of my party. I am not aware of any factional group. I am a loyal member of APC and abide with the consensus agreement reached by the stakeholders of my local government.

“Even though I aspired for the position of vice chairman zone B, stakeholders of the zone in a meeting agreed on a consensus candidate and I have stepped down for the consensus candidate and declared my respect and loyalty to the decision of the party.”

Also speaking, Bosso advised the aggrieved group to embrace the consensus arrangement and channel their grievances through due process.
