Rivers: APC Caretaker C’ttee Nullifies All Suspensions



The national leadership of the All Progressives Congress APC has nullified all suspensions and counter-suspensions that have enveloped the party arising from actions taken by the two factions to undo the other.

Party members whose suspensions were nullified on Thursday include Senator Magnus Abe, Hon. Igo Aguma, Barr. Wogu Boms and Livingstone Wechie.

Head, Legal Services at the APC National Secretariat, Dare Oketade Esq. had in an earlier letter dated December 23 and addressed to Hon. Igo Aguma announced the nullification of the suspension of Transportation Minister, Rotimi Amaechi, Sen. Andrew Uchendu and Victor Giadom.

In another letter dated December 23 and addressed to the Isaac Abbot Ogobula-led State Caretaker Committee Chairman, the party’s national leadership faulted the earlier suspension of Sen. Abe and others, warning the state Caretaker Committee to stick to its mandate of reconciling the all aggrieved tendencies.

Part of the letter reads; “The Party has noted with concern the spate of suspensions and counter suspensions within the Rivers State Chapter of our Party.

“I have been directed by the National Chairman, H.E. Governor Mai Mala Buni to remind you of your core mandate as the State Caretaker Committee Chairman in Rivers State which is to reconcile all persons and accommodate all shades of interests no matter how variant they may be.

“The National Secretariat of the Party has reviewed the purported suspension of several members of the Party in Rivers State as having not been in accordance with the procedures as set out by the Constitution of our Party views.

“Therefore the purported suspension of several Party members including Senator Magnus Abe, who is a revered leader of the Party in Rivers State is not in accordance with the provisions of the Party’s Constitution and a distraction on the National leadership of the Party, which is focused on the reconciliation of members of the Party and rebuilding of the Party from bottom up.

“It is upon my further instruction to advise that all media brickbats with relation to the suspensions and counter suspensions be suspended forthwith and efforts be taken to assist the South-South Reconciliation Committee headed by Chief John Odigie Oyegun in its efforts to reconcile all warring members of the Party in Rivers State.

“While thanking you for your anticipated cooperation with the Party in the on-going reconciliation efforts, please accept the assurance of the regards of the National Chairman of our great Party”.
