APC To Conduct Fresh Congresses In Rivers
National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, has said the party has accepted the decision of the Supreme Court that voided the congresses in Rivers State.
Oshiomole, at a news conference in Abuja noted that though the congresses were conducted by the previous administration of John Odigie-Oyegun, the party has no choice but to organize a fresh exercise in compliance with the court order
According to Adams Oshiomhole, democracy is the celebration of the rule of law. This is the underlying factor for the party to begin to make amends in rivers state and conduct fresh ward, local government and state congresses.
The controversy surrounding the emergence of candidates for the 2019 elections in Ogun, Imo and Zamfara states also came up at the news conference. For the APC chairman, Governor Okorocha is driven by the urge to create a dynasty in Imo state.
Oshiomhole accused Gov. Amosun of illegally turning up consensus candidates that could create bad blood in the party in Ogun state.
He said the party has confidence in its presidential candidate.
