Prof. Umar Katsayal, Chairman Electoral Committee, All Progressives Congress (APC) Adamawa state congress, says all was now set for the Congress and that there was no court order stopping the exercise.

He said that all the seven committee members deployed to Adamawa were present at the venue, waiting for the INEC officials to make full representation.

According to him, the Congress was set according to the party guidelines of article 11A subsection 1-8, 16i of APC constitution.

“The wards and Local Government Areas’ Congress was conducted successfully and today we are here to conduct for the state.

“The Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) appointed and deployed a seven-member committee to Adamawa.

“As you can see, the election materials are already here, no court injunction that stops us from this congress”, the chairman said, while assuring that they would fully comply with the provisions of the party’s constitution.

Also confirming the development, Ahmed Lawal, an aspirant for the Chairmanship position, said that they were ready for the election as he would not step down for anybody.

Newsmen report that more security personnel drawn from the Police, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) and FRSC, have been deployed to the venue, to ensure a hitch-free congress.
