Delta APC infighting intensifies

19 September 2016, 18:37

Asaba - The problems afflicting the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the Delta State have taken a new dimension with National Vice Chairman, APC South-South, Ntufam Hilliard Eta, trashing a 25-man State Caretaker Committee to run the affairs of the party in the state.

Eta described the Senator Francis Spanner Okpozo-led Elders Committee “a strange body not known and recognised by our constitution.”

“Consequently, any gathering under that nomenclature and guise becomes an aberration, and all decisions taken by such unknown creation are a nullity ab initio,” said Eta."

The Zonal Executive Body of APC berated the elders and those who took part in the “ill-conceived” gathering.

“At no time and on no account has any such body been recognized and/or mandated by either the National Working Committee (NWC) or the Zonal Executive Committee (ZEC) to superintend over operations of the party in Delta State and at such passing judgement on the Prophet Jones Ode Erue led State Executive Committee amounts to embarking on a wild goose chase.”

Eta said to avoid “severe sanctions” and “end petty squabbles, unnecessary wailing and rantings by the Okpozo fake elders committee”, the cited officials must attend a disciplinary hearing at National Secretariat of the party in Abuja.

“Finally, let me encourage all structures and members of the party in Delta State to remain calm, and to remain loyal to the Prophet Jones Erue led State Executive Committee as the National Working Committee of our great party is working hard at resolving all contending issues in Delta State," Eta stated.
