Delegates raise alarm over delay of sale of forms for Saturday congress in rivers

But Okorocha confirmed to reporters that he intimated Buhari on the outcome of the ward congress which was said to have been marred with crisis and confusion in his state as some unidentified thugs attacked the state party secretariat located at the Imo State University junction in Owerri.

He said that members were obedient and adhered strictly to the rules of the party during the exercise.

"It is the hope and aspiration of stakeholders of our party in Rivers State that National Executive Council (NEC) will respect the opinion of the people of the state". The reports indicate that things are going well. "Two of my members got injured but we stood our ground, knowing fully well that this great party can never be disintegrated", he said.

"A National advisory committee on the congress was set up by the National Secretariat of the party and our job was to advise the party on issue that will strengthen bond of unity and cohesion before, during and after the National convention for a credible general elections in 2019". From our record, it is very clear that in some wards, the elections were done by mode of affirmation where the candidates and the party headquarters in such wards were able to reconcile the contending parties.
