The Chairman of the Committee for the state congress of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kwara State, Prof. Emmanuel Dan-Daura has admonished all delegates to the congress to conduct themselves peacefully, adding that they were in the state to ensure a free and fair congress.

Dan- Daura gave the charge during an APC stakeholders meeting in Ilorin, the state capital on Friday.

He said, in all, 36 executives would be elected during the congress to run the affairs of the party in the state.

The Chairman added that the constitution of the party would be strictly followed and adhered to by his committee during the congress.

The Secretary of the Committee, Dr. Isiaku Bako, said those qualified to be delegates at the congress include members of the party’s board of trustees, chairman and other members of the state executive, the state governor and his deputy, former and current national assembly members from the state.

Others are former and current national executive committee members from the state, former and current House of Assembly members, councillors, party chairmen and secretaries in the 16 local government areas and five delegates per each of the 193 wards in the state.

Bako said the exercise will hold at the state APC secretariat along the Commissioners Lodge Way, GRA, Ilorin.

Earlier, the state chairman of APC, Alhaji Abdullahi Samari had reminded the stakeholders that the state congress would be delegate- based.

While assuring that all arrangements have been made to ensure a hitch-free exercise, Samari advised delegates to the congress to conduct themselves in orderly manners.

In his remarks, Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq harped on the need for winners and losers in the congresses from the ward, local government to the state level to see themselves as members of the same family, adding that “everyone is a winner”.

Represented by his deputy, Mr Kayode Alabi, the governor wished the party’s members a peaceful state congress.
