The senator representing Kogi West, Dino Melaye, has taken a swipe at the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) over parallel congresses in some of their state chapters.
Different factions of the APC have conducted their own congresses in Enugu, Imo, Delta, Kogi, etc.
“Congratulations to the 72 new State Chairmen of APC. Every where na double double. What a blessed party!!!!” Melaye tweeted on Saturday evening.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had declared that it would not recognise factional or parallel congresses by political parties.
INEC stated that only congresses approved by the National Working Committee (NWC) of the parties will be accepted.
