The factional crisis in Akwa Ibom APC worsened as there were more than three parallel State congresses held yesterday.
Unconfirmed reports said there was a fourth congress led by a chieftain of the party, Bishop Sam Akpan.
The three factions are those of the Niger Delta Affairs Minister, Senator Godswill Akpabio, the one of Senator Ita Enang and that of National Secretary of the Caretaker Committee, Senator John Akpanudoedehe.
Akpabio’s faction held its congress at the Kara Event Centre situated along the Goodluck Jonathan Boulevard, Uyo while Akpanudoedehe’s own held at the Sheergrace Events Centre.
Our correspondent observed that officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and APC Ad hoc Committee members monitored the congress held by Akpanudoedehe’s faction only.
