The national leadership of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has suspended the ongoing State Congress in Oyo State.

Naija News reports that the order was given by the Governor of Yobe State and Chairman, Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee, Mai Mala Buni.

It was gathered that the suspension was due to the forging of documents meant for the exercise and other irregularities.

This was made known in a statement signed by the party’s National Secretary, Sen John James Akpanudoedehe, on Saturday.

According to the APC leadership, the suspension became necessary to ensure credibility of the process leading to the emergence of new leaders in Oyo State.

“It has become necessary to suspend the ongoing State Congress exercise in Oyo State due to information regarding the forging of documents meant to conduct this exercise.

“The national chairman has however ordered the Oyo State Congress Committee to return to the National Secretariat for further briefing,” the statement said.

The APC leadership maintained that the ruling party will ensure a level playing ground and justice at all times.

APC is carrying out its State Congresses in 34 states across the nation, today, Saturday 16, 2021.
