APC stalwarts seek NEC urgent intervention in Rivers


Two Chieftains of the All Progressives Congress in Rivers State, and former members of the House of Representatives, Lasbry Amadi and Igo Aguma, have called on the National Executive Council (NEC) of the party to urgently address the lingering intra-party crisis in the state.

The former lawmakers maintained that they remained the only recognised chieftains in Port Harcourt City Local Government Area (PHALGA) by the national leadership of the party, stressing that APC’s constitution should be respected.

Speaking, Amadi said: “It most unfortunate, these are hired characters; we know their antecedent. We are part of the original owners of this party. We want Nigeria know that, as far as APC is concerned, there is no disintegration, no division in APC. We are all together.”


“The only thing is that we would always insist that we should behave like the progressives. And if we do not behave like progressives, then, we try as much as possible to let you behave like a progressive.

“Our position is let the right thing be done. Our own decision is let us win election. We have never conducted ourselves in such a way to show that we are actually ready or interested, or would show as to win election. We want election to be done the way it should be done,” Amadi added.

On his part, Aguma, said they are commitment to restoring peace in Rivers APC, stressing that the party cannot make any headway if it continues to thrive in wrangling.

He, therefore, called on the national executive council (NEC) of the party to, as a matter of urgency, address the crisis that has bedeviled the party in Rivers State for the past years.

He expressed displeasure over the high-handedness of the party leader in the state and called for strict adherence to the party’s constitution.
