Newly Registered APC Splits In Rivers…We Will Succeed In Rivers – Esuku

Indications have shown that all is not well with the newly registered All Progressive Congress, APC in Rivers State. This is noticed with claims by the factional leader of the defunct ACN Leader, Chief Williams Igwe against the chairman of the former ACN in the state, Esuku M. Esuku.

This is coming on the heels when the much debated claims and counter claims on the approval of the All Progressive Congress, APC, has been laid to rest following the registration of the three political parties merging as one.

The Independent Electoral Commission, INEC had on Wednesday 31st July, 2013 announced the approval for the new party, saying that the Action Party of Nigeria, ACN, All Nigerians Peoples Party, ANPP and the Congress for Progressive Change, CPC have met the requirements for registration as a party.

The three political parties are now to be addressed, called and known as the All Progressive Congress as the individual party platforms have since this announcement gone into extinction.

INEC, said it has withdrawn the certificates and licenses of the three political parties and awarded only one to the newly found led APC.

APC as they boasted is now positioned to push its challenges through either to take over from the ruling PDP or queue behind it come 2015.

Back in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital the tempo is very high as jubilation of the merger and subsequent registration takes over centre stage of activities since last Wednesday following the announcement by INEC.

Chairman of the defunct state Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN, Hon. Esuku M. Esuku while expressing happiness over the registration thanked INEC for seeing reasons to register the APC.

Commenting on his still being in power as the APC chairman after the merger, Hon. Esuku maintained that, the new structure of the party would determined in no distant time, expressing optimism that the party will succeed in Rivers State.

Meanwhile, Esuku has enjoined supporters of the party to remain calm as the party is just a baby, saying that those opposing him in different sections of the media are only noise makers.

He wondered why some people would get up now to begin criticism on baseless and unfounded claims other than thinking how to move the party forward.

While maintaining that he is not under any form of suspension, Hon. Esuku posited that the party knows those who are its members.

He disclosed this while reacting to statements credited to one of his co-contenders of the former party’s leadership in the state.

Esuku’s position is in line with the party’s action as posited by the acting natitonal chairman, Bisi Akande. ###
