SENATOR ABE LEADS RIVERS APC IN SUPPORT OF PRESIDENT BUHARI’S POSITION ON TENURE OF PARTY OFFICIALS





A COMMUNIQUE ISSUED AT THE END OF AN EXTRA-ORDINARY RIVERS APC STAKEHOLDERS MEETING HELD IN PORT HARCOURT ON THE 2ND OF APRIL, 2018

After a dispassionate and robust appraisal of current happenings in the All Progressives Congress both at the national and state levels of the party, an  expanded stakeholders meeting of the APC in Rivers State met, deliberated and resolved as follows:
1. We commend President Muhammadu Buhari for his clear, bold and courageous stand on the constitutional issue of elected party officials. The President’s position has not only shown that the All Progressives Congress (APC) is a political party that respects the true tenets of internal democracy and the dictates of the law, it has also steered the party clear of prospective legal danger.

2. We urge members of the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to place the interest of the party above every other consideration and respect the informed position of Mr. President to conduct congresses across all strata of the party to bring the party in conformity with extant constitutional provisions of the Nigerian Constitution and its own constitution.

3. We applaud the doggedness of members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State who have remained committed to the ideals of the party in spite of internal bickering and external pressure and who have continued to make sacrifices for the sustenance of the party in Rivers State.

4. We enjoin members of the All Progressives Congress (APC)  in Rivers State to return all party executives at all levels in the state during the congresses irrespective of their factional leanings  as a reward for their sacrifice and commitment to the APC in the face of threats, intimidation and even physical danger.

5. Finally, we call on members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State to ignore those who have been deceived into leaving the party as there will be no implosion in Rivers  APC. All the leaders of the party are committed to ensuring the victory of the APC in Rivers State and in the whole country in the 2019 elections.
