Abuja - The National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Abuja on Tuesday inaugurated a new executive council for its Rivers chapter.
Mr Victor Kwon, the National Legal Adviser of the party, while swearing in the 27 member-executive council, urged the members to live up to their oath of allegiance.
He also urged them not to disappoint the party's leadership.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the inauguration of the new executives followed the sacking of the Chief Godspower Akeh- led executive council by an Abuja High Court on Monday.
The court had ruled that the result being paraded by Ake did not emanate from a genuine congress and consequently approved the election of Mr Felix Obuah and his executive committee members.
Obuah had gone to court to challenge the election of Akeh in February 2011.
In the Obuah-led executive, Mr Walter Opuene will serve as Secretary.
Earlier, the Acting National Secretary, Mr Solomon Onwe, said that the NWC recognised the court decision and was bound to obey it.
The ceremony was attended by Sen. Lee Maeba, the Minister of State for Education, Mr Nysom Wike, Mr Austin Opara, a former Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, among other party leaders from Rivers.
