APC orders inauguration of ward executives, mute on appeals


The Caretaker/Extraordinary National Convention Planning Committee of the All Progressives Congress has ordered the inauguration of ward executives elected during the recently concluded ward congresses.

This was part of resolutions of the 16th meeting of the APC CECPC held on September 1, 2021, at the National Secretariat, Buhari House, Abuja, on Wednesday.

It read in part, “The All Progressives Congress Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee ratifies and adopts the results of the Party’s nationwide Ward Congresses held on Saturday, July 31st, 2021.


“Accordingly, the CECPC approves the immediate inauguration of Ward Executives by state caretaker committees.

“The CECPC hereby directs that the conduct of nationwide Local Government Congresses proceeds accordingly by Saturday, September 4th, 2021 as contained in the official timetable/schedule of activities released by the party.”

The document was signed by the party’s National Secretary, Sen. John Akpanudoedehe.

The party was, however, silent about what became of appeals received from states where there were complaints about injustice.
