APC Assistant Director, Publicity, Edegbe Odewinge, in a statement said that Osita Izunaso, APC national organising secretary, received the report on behalf of the national chairman, John Odigie-Oyegun, from appeal committee scribe, Nosa Aladeselu.
“Receiving petitions according to the APC constitution is seven days after the primary election and within the next seven days, the committee meets to submit a report and that is exactly what we have done in this case”, Aladeselu said.
“A number of persons submitted petitions and also a good number of representations of our party members in Anambra state also made personal appearances.
“We also had situations where some who could not come, submitted the affidavit of their understanding of the processes they observed to the committee.
“What you have here is a collection of all the complaints and responses. After reviewing the petitions from our members at the primaries, we also invited persons, officials and other stakeholders who were indicted by the petitioners.
“The committee also took testimonies from persons whose responses were key to our report. So, what we have here is our analysis of the petition, our understanding of the witnesses we received.
“We have given our recommendation to the national working committee who will in their own wisdom decide on the final outcome”, he added.
