Secretary of the committee, Sen. Victor Ndoma-Egba who threw the challenge at a news conference Thursday in Abuja also said he could not immediately put a figure yo how much was spent on the convention until all the sub-committees submit their reports to the secretariat because funds were not disbursed from him but from the party.
“Our party’s constitution is very clear. The Electoral Act is very clear and when the national chairman was announced unopposed, the question was put at the convention so we believe that we satisfied every legal requirement.
“Collating reports from the various subcommittees and one of the things they must address is how much did you receive and how much did you spend and after that, the accounts will be audited”, he added.
According to him, statutory delegates from Cross River and Enugu states were allowed to vote notwithstanding the fact that there were litigations against them in the courts over the outcome of the recently concluded states congresses of the party.
“No state was disqualified. We had a few states that had issues in court and where there was a binding order and because we are a law-abiding party we obeyed the court order and in such states, only the statutory delegates that were not in dispute were allowed into the convention ground”, he said of Cross River and Ebonyi states.
