The All Progressives Congress, APC, in Rivers state has spoken up on the rescheduled congresses in the state.
Chris Finebone, APC Publicity Secretary in Rivers, in a statement on Saturday, said the offices of the State Secretary and State Administrative Secretary which opened Friday, 18th May for issuance of forms to intending contestants in the Ward Congress on presentation of bank tellers will remain open from 7am on Saturday, 19th May.
He added: “And in exercise of its powers of discretion, the national leadership has also waived payment to bank for the Local Government and State Congresses now scheduled for Sunday 20th and Monday 21st May respectively because of the weekend.
“Intending contestants in the Local Government and State Congresses can now collect their forms after making cash payments to either the office of the State Secretary or the State Administrative Secretary at the State Party Secretariat.
“Intending contestants and all party faithful are expected to take maximum advantage of this opportunity.”
The party had earlier canceled the Ward and Local Government Congresses of 5th and 12th May, 2018.
