The party directed them to work with the Vitalis Okafor-led State Caretaker Committee.

The party said the statement was issued to correct misconceptions and misinterpretation of the state of affairs in its Imo State chapter.

The statement read in parts: The NWC hereby clarifies that the local government and ward caretaker committees have not been dissolved by the party. They are fully in charge of the ward and local government affairs of the party in the state and are hereby directed to work with the Hon Vitalis Okafor-led State Caretaker Committee.

“Nevertheless and for the avoidance of doubt, the National Working Committee (NWC) states that no other person or group except the Hon. Vitalis Okafor-led committee is authorized to handle the administration of the party at the State level.

“The NWC cautions that any unauthorized interference by any person or group whatsoever in the running of the party in the state would be faced with strict disciplinary action by the NWC in accordance with the constitution of our great party,” the party said.
