Factions battle for soul of Rivers APC



Faction of APC Rivers suspend Chairman, another passes vote of confidence.

What seemed like a battle for the soul of Rivers chapter of All Progressives Congress, APC has broken with a faction of the party led by one Chike Enyinda claiming that it has suspended the Emeke Beke led State Working Committee of the party.

The spokesman of the group, Chike Enyinda announced the suspension at a press conference in Port Harcourt.

He accused members of the suspended faction of engaging in anti-party activities and financial misappropriation.

Specifically, he accused the state leader of the party and former Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi of mobilizing members of the APC in the state to vote for the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Atiku Abubakar in the February 25th elections.

However, the Emeka Beke led State Working Committee of the party in a swift reaction dismissed the alleged suspension.

Darlington Nwauju, the Publicity Secretary of the SWC said in a statement that members of the party had at a meeting on Tuesday passed a vote of confidence on Beke, the State Chairman of the party.

He said by the vote, the APC members urged Beke to sustain, lead and champion the popular demand of our party membership across the 319 wards in Rivers State.

“The SWC encouraged him to continue in his quest to reclaim party’s alleged stolen mandate at the 25th February and 18th March 2023 general elections, be recovered through Constitutional means at the Election Petitions Tribunal, EPT.

He added that the SWC also condemned the attack on its Governorship candidate, Tonye Cole, on Monday 3rd April 2023 at GRA junction by thugs allegedly sponsored by the opposition PDP.

“The SWC also unanimously reiterated the party’s stand that the Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) in-charge of INEC in Rivers State, discharges his constitutionally assigned functions under Section 74 of the Electoral Act 2022 (as amended) by releasing all documents in the EC8 series relevant for the filing of our petitions at the EPT.
