The Governor Mai Mala Buni-led Caretaker/Extra-Ordinary National Convention Planning Committee has voided the purported suspension of the Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi and other members of the party in Rivers State.
The Igo Aguma-led faction of the APC Rivers State chapter, had announced the suspension of Amaechi, the former APC National Deputy Secretary, Victor Giadom, Senator Andrew Uchendu among others, over alleged anti-party activities.
However, in a letter signed by the Head, Legal Services of the APC, Dare Oketade, on Wednesday, the ruling party described their suspension as a nullity, as the persons behind the decision were impostors.
The letter read in part, “We have checked through our records at the National Secretariat and found out that those persons are not officers of the party in Rivers State.
“I am therefore directed by the National Chairman, His Excellency, Governor Mai Mala Buni, to notify you, for the avoidance of doubt, that the Rivers State chapter of the APC is led by Hon. Isaac Ogbobula, who was duly sworn in at the National Secretariat of the party on December 2020, by virtue of the National Executive Committee meeting held at the Council chamber of Aso Rock Abuja.”
The statement further warned that APC will not hesitate to take necessary disciplinary measures should any member in Rivers State, who continue to take steps in impersonating the recognised state caretaker committee.
