Rivers APC Congratulates Newly Elected Ward Executives

National Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the Ward Congress in Oyo State has declared Sunday's congress held in all the 351 wards of the state as successful and conclusive, nearly uninterrupted and nearly peaceful.

We call on the national leadership of the party to intervene to save the party's internal democracy.

President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday hosted the Chairman of the Progressive Governors Forum, Rochas Okorocha; and the Chairman of the Nigerian Governors' Forum, Abdulaziz Yari, in his hometown, Daura, Katsina State. He said that by Monday (today), they will publish the unofficial results pending the ratification by the NWC of the party.

The governor, in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Sam Onwuemeodo, expressed regret over the role of "the party's National Organising Secretary, Senator Osita Izunaso, who was not able to divorce his local and personal political interests or pursuits from his official responsibilities as the National Organising Secretary of a national party like APC".

"These jaundiced elements only were trying to drop his name to achieve their selfish objective, whereas he (Asiwaju) was committed to moving round to see that genuine congresses were held", Oki said.

Frustrated, Ripples Nigeria gathered that Okorocha ran to the IGP asking that he order the Police to take action against those he claimed worked against him at the congress.

"The APC State Congress Committee in a very frustrating outing gave our members the Nomination Forms for only Two Local Governments out of 23 LGs around 3:55 a.m and that was at the wee hours of the Congress date of 5th May, 2018".

"They can not hold because the expectation of members is that congresses should hold in 245 wards". All those that feel aggrieved should take their grievances to the appeal panel.

The APC noted that considering the unprecedented vandalization of its State Secretariat by well-known elements of the party induced by Governor Wike of Rivers State, the party have set up a Stock-Taking Committee to ascertain the level of damage of the property of the party vandalised and stolen which the culprits of this heinous crime will pay.

"It is the hope and aspiration of stakeholders of our party in Rivers State that National Executive Council (NEC) will respect the opinion of the people of the state".

"Chief Odigie-Oyegun has more pressing issues begging his attention than the ward congress", Publicity Secretary of the party in the state, Mr. Chris Azebamwan, told Punch.
