The Lagos State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has received various petitions as a fallout of the party Chairmanship and Councillorship primaries held recently in the state.
The Appeal Committee set up by the party has rounded up its sitting, according to The Guardian.
Although, the total number of petitions received by the committee was not disclosed, a source in the party told The Guardian yesterday that most of the petitions bothered on imposition of candidates, disregard to Article 20 of the APC Constitution and denial of members of the right to elect their preferred candidates.
The Guardian also gathered that the committee, led by former Deputy Governor, Prince Abiodun Ogunleye sat for four days and would present its report to the party’s executive any moment from now.
The Assistant Publicity Secretary of the party, Biodun Salami however dismissed allegation that the leadership of the party tried to influence the decision of the committee.
According to him, “The Appeal Committee has independent mandate to take a critical look into the various petitions brought before it and it has concluded its assignment.”
