The State Chairman of the party, Elder Fred Udogu accused those he described as enemies of the party as masterminds of the distribution.
According to him, “some persons were seen distributing fake forms during the congress but I tell you, the distribution has nothing to do with us because the fake forms were not received from our office”.
He noted that the forms that were given to the party had serial numbers adding tha any form without a serial number is a waste.
According to him, “The Congress went well and we had no problems in any place. I moved to most of the local government and there was no problem in any of the wards. Although, i got information that some people were submitting fake forms.
He stated that the party has distributed materials and relevant forms ahead of the local government Congress slated to hold coming Tuesday, 5th October 2021, in the 13 LGAs of the state.
Elder Udeogu made the disclosure in Abakaliki while interacting with Journalists on the outcome of the ward congress and the preparedness of the party ahead of it’s local government congresses.
He said that the party is committed towards a crisis free Congress adding that everything would be put in place to ensure a free and credible congress.

“For now we do not know those contesting for the State Chairmanship position of our party. We will know those who are contesting for the position because they will come to get their forms and these forms are free”.
“The important thing is that the position is zoned to the South which includes; Afikpo South, Afikpo North, Ohaozara, Ivo and Onitcha Local government areas. So, whoever they pick, we will take the person”.
