First Test For APC 21-Man Committee
Some aggrieved expelled members of the All Peoples Congress(APC) on Friday, 12, May 2022 urged the newly formed 21-Man Transitional Governance Committee to speedy address the unresolved issues within the party membership before commencement of low-level internal elections.
The aggrieved members raised this concern immediately after the committee was sworn into office.
It could be recalled that among the orders issued to the Committee by Justice Adrian Fisher in his final ruling last month on the Alfred Peter Conteh Versus the Party Constitutional brawl was that of setting unresolved membership issues before the party’s national delegates convention is held and must be included in the convention’s agenda.
The aggrieved members urged the committee to find ways to amend that issue; as most of them want to vie for various positions in the lower-level elections Ind national elections under the party.
