The campaign organisation of an All Progressives Congress (APC) gubernatorial aspirant, Sani Sha’aban, has rejected the alleged claim by the APC Delegate Congress Appeal Committee that Congresses to produce delegates were held in Kaduna State.
In a press statement issued by the Sani Sha’aban campaign organisation, headed by the Campaign Director-General, Barr. Joshua Danladi Ephraim, it cited as misleading and erroneous a press release issued by the Appeal Committee yesterday, that congresses to produce delegates in the State were held.

The organisation also debunked the Committee’s claim that there was no petition submitted for consideration by any person or campaign organisation during the two days of the sitting.


The statement read: “We want to categorically deny that no such Congress to produce delegates were ever held in the whole State, and secondly that there was a petition written.
“It is a fact that many party faithful indeed paid for and filled the delegates form, which were not collected by the State nor National Office of our dear Party, thus disenfranchising thousands of APC members of their rights to become delegates, as enshrined in the Constitution of our great Party and the  election guideline, which is, we submit an integral part of the electoral process that produces the candidate of the party.
“Furthermore, we have submitted a petition to the Resident Electoral Commissioner of INEC, Kaduna State, that no congress to produce delegates were ever held.


“Also, we have here before you a petition by our campaign organisation delegates about the non-conduct of any congress to produce the purported delegates in the state and the petition was not collected. Before you is our own petition challenging the conduct of any delegates conference with in kaduna state when the appeal committee refused to accept.We wish to categorically state that there was no delegate election in the State”.
The organisation, therefore, called on the national leadership party to compel the State chapter to hold its delegates congress that will pave way for the emergence of credible standard-bearers.
