The ruling All Progressives Congress’ National Working Committee inaugurated members of the Rivers State chapter’s caretaker committee on Friday.

The inauguration, which took place about 12.30 p.m. at the APC’s national headquarters in Abuja, was attended by the party’s National Chairman, Dr Abdullahi Ganduje; Vice Chairman for South-South, Victor Giadom; and members of the NWC.

The ceremony took place two days after the APC National Working Committee disbanded the former state excos to make way for the ad hoc committee that will oversee the conduct of a congress to elect new state executive members.

The National Publicity Secretary, Felix Morka, announced the dissolution at the party secretariat on Wednesday.

Morka revealed that Chief Tony Okocha has been appointed chairman of the seven-man caretaker committee, with Eric Nwibani as secretary.

Chibuike Ikenga, Stephen Abolo, Silvester Vidin, Senibo Karibi Dan-Jumbo, and Miss Darling Amadi are also members.

After the oath-taking, Ganduje addressed the newly sworn-in officers and asked them to prepare for the difficult task of reconciling factions and members who had left the party.

The APC national chairman also tasked them with using the six-month period to create an enabling atmosphere for the congress, ushering in leadership at all levels.

“I’d like to congratulate the newly sworn-in members of the caretaker committee,” he remarked. I am sure you are well aware that the APC has been experiencing some setbacks in the areas of disagreements, litigation, and counter-litigation since 2015, culminating in the loss of our great party in Rivers State.

“As a result, the new NWC has examined the party’s issues at both the national and individual state levels and decided to reform the party.” We have members who have been with APC since its inception. Some people departed the celebration. Some important party chieftains who defected even ran against us in another political party. They now want to return. Those who fled to establish factions are likewise eager to return.

“As you can see, there is no better time to restructure the party than now, especially with a new state party leadership, and we have faith in you.” We ask that you pay attention to the electronic registration of our members as part of the reform system we have implemented, and that you do some effort to lead the exercise.

“We expect you to form various committees in order to attract more members to the party.” That is the work you should be doing, and we expect you to create an enabling atmosphere in which congresses can be held to foster the formation of leadership at the municipal, state, and even senatorial levels.

Because you are a creation of unity, there should be no prejudice.”
