The Ebonyi chapter of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) says it will hold its ward delegates’ congresses across the 13 local government areas of the state on May 10.

Ricky Okorouka, APGA’s chairman in the state, told journalists on Monday in Abakaliki that the party was ready to conduct a peaceful and transparent congress.

Mr Okorouka noted that the three-person delegate would elect ad hoc delegates that would vote during the party primaries ahead of the 2023 poll.

“We have invited the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), which is going to witness the exercise.

“We have held stakeholders meetings ahead of the Tuesday ward congress and preparations for a peaceful exercise have been made and we have urged all the aspirants to conduct themselves,” he said.

He said the party had also informed the State Security Service (SSS) to ensure a violence-free exercise.

“I pray there will be no rancour and I believe that our dear party is one united type for the interest of Ebonyi and the nation at large.

“I am assuring you that the outcome will be credible, and during the party primaries, the best candidate will emerge,” he added.
