He said his office has not received any formal complaint or petition against the outcome of the ward congress which was carried out based on consensus and affirmation to avoid friction in the party.

A total of 3,969 candidates who contested at the last Satuday's wards congress of the All Progressive Congress in Zamfara have emerged winners of the congresses through consensus.

Governor of Imo State Rochas Okorocha has directed the State Commissioner of Police, Chris Ezike, to arrest and prosecute all members of the All Progressive Congress (APC) Committee that conducted the Saturday ward congress in the state for their alleged role in the stealing of materials intended for the election.

"We have put our house in order to ensure that APC wins in the next governorship election".

"Our members had by the provision of the guidelines and the APC Constitution paid the required fees for the nomination forms into the APC accounts and collected tellers for the 9,453 positions to be contested in 255 Wards across the 23 LGs involving 37 different positions in each of the Wards across the State".

"All the other necessary things are ready. We are highly satisfied", Mr Modibbo said.

"The Kaduna APC will continue to wax stronger as a united party, whose members are loyal to its constitution, and are committed to the goal of serving our people", he said.

Contrary to a report that the governor's supporters did not pay the mandatory fees for the purchase of forms, Olaoya said: "Let them prove it if they have proof".

"Sources have it that the team leader reminded SENACO agents that both the governor and the party state chairman had informed the APC national headquarters of a consensus arrangement which made Abuja to print single form for each of the available executive posts in all the 351 wards across the state while the same had been given to those who came with their authentic bank tellers as evidence of valid payments".

Meanwhile, Adamu Modibbo, chairman APC wards and local governments Congresses Committee for Kaduna state said the committee was satisfied with the conduct of the ward congresses in spite of protests against the exercise.
