The lawmaker representing Delta in the National Assembly, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege on Saturday led a factional members of the All Progressives Congress, APC, to organize a parallel congress to elect a new  state working committee.

ROYAL NEWS reports that this unfolded despite the postponement of the congress till Monday by the National Working Committee of the APC.

 The congress, which is currently underway at the St. Mulumba Primary/Secondary School, Okpanam, is being attended by Senator Omo-Agege who represents Delta Central at the Senate; and a four-time governorship candidate in the state, Chief Great Ogboru.

It was learnt that the Minister of State for Petroleum, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu, is also pitching tent with this faction of the party in what members described as “a renewed effort to wrestle the structure from the 2015 governorship candidate of the party, Olorogun O’tega Emerhor.”

The NWC had, in a letter addressed to the chairman of Independent National Electoral Commission and signed by APC’s National Secretary, Mr. Mai Mama Buni, confirmed the postponement of the exercise till Monday.

A copy of the letter obtained by our correspondent is dated May 18, 2018.

It reads, “We refer to our letter reference No: APC/NHDQ/INEC/19/018/12 dated 27th April, 2018.

“We wish to advice that we have rescheduled the conduct of our state congresses in Delta State to Monday 21st May, 2018.”

It was gathered that the postponement was as a result of the internal wrangling among the leaders of the party in the state.

A chieftain of the party and Executive Director, Business Development NEXIM Bank, Stella Okotete, who confirmed the holding of the congress, insisted that “the congress was in line with the party guideline.”
