Congress will hold in Kwara, the state chapter of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has said, urging the public to ignore fake news circulating around that it will not hold due to issues around membership registration.
In a statement issued Thursday, Alhaji Tajudeen Aro Folaranmi, State Publicity Secretary said the National Secretariat of the party has confirmed that congress will hold in the state.
“The All Progressives Congress, APC, in Kwara State has debunked the false information on the forthcoming congresses in the state, maintaining that the party congresses would hold in Kwara State together with other states as scheduled, starting from next month.
“The Kwara APC has described the rumour that Kwara and three other states would not be having congresses untill the issue of membership registration is settled, as unfounded and mere sophistry.
“The Caretaker Chairman of the APC in Kwara State, Alhaji Abdullahi Samari in a statement issued by the party said he has called the national secretariat to confirm the authenticity of the story and was told it was false and unfounded.”
Interested party members were charged to be prepared for the forthcoming congress and ignore the false information.
