The All Progressives Congress local government congress Committee in charge of Osun State, has denied claims that parallel congresses were held in the state on Saturday.
Party supporters under the aegis of The Osun Progressives had on Sunday unveiled those elected as chairmen in the 27 local government areas in the state, as well as Modakeke Area Office at the parallel congress it held.
However, the Chairman of the panel sent from the APC National Secretariat for the exercise, Mr. Gbenga Elegbeleye, who addressed newsmen in Osogbo, on Monday said, “We have the results of the 30 local government areas and Ife-East Area Office with us. We were here yesterday for the compilation of the results coming from the local governments.
“As you all know, we are here to conduct the Local Government Congress for All Progressives Congress in Osun State and not for any group. In our visit to some of the local government areas, we couldn’t see any other place rather than the designated centres where the Congress was supposed to be held and nobody contacted us. Nobody or group of persons informed us there will be Congress elsewhere.
“As far as we are concerned, none of the committee members was informed of any other venue other than where the exercise was genuinely held across the state. We are seven in number and all of us are here. We all witnessed the election.” PUNCH
