    The congress was monitored by the Independent National Electoral Commission and some officials of the party at the national level.

    However, in Cross Rivers, the congress was postponed indefinitely following alleged discrepancies in some wards and local government congresses of the party.

    Chairman of the State Congress Committee, Dr.Ernest Osifo, announced the postponement during a meeting with stakeholders in Calabar.

    He said the party had resolved to introducel a credible electoral  procedure following alleged irregularities reported in 59 out of the 196 wards as well as in seven of the 18 local Local Government areas of Cross River.

    He said the postponement of the  congress would  enable the committee to address grey areas in the affected wards and council areas and ensure that the rescheduled state congress was transparent.

    He said that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had also expressed concern over the irregularities and warned against the consequences of going ahead with the exercise without addressing the grey areas
