APC Faults Okorocha Over Court Order Against Swearing-In Imo Chairman

 

The ruling APC has described as spurious allegations by the Imo state governor, Rochas Okorocha that the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief John Odigie-Oyegun ‘disobeyed’ court orders regarding Congresses in Imo State and inauguration of the state’s Party executives.

The party said through Mallam Bilaji Abdullah in a statement, “ these allegations are spurious as the Party did not at any time receive any court injunctions regarding the Congresses in Imo.

 “Therefore, we urge the Imo State Governor to desist from making these kinds of allegations that have no basis in facts.

“In conducting the Congresses across the country, in considering the outcomes of each one of them and in swearing in the respective State Chairmen, the National Working Committee (NWC) had strictly followed the guiding rules and the Constitution of the Party.

 “There is always room for redress where justified, hence, we encourage the Imo State Governor to explore internal dispute resolution mechanisms spelt out by our Constitution to address his perceived grievances.

“While we urge compromise among Party stakeholders, the Party has already mandated the Deputy National Chairman (North), Sen. Lawali Shuaibu to head our reconciliation efforts following issues that arose from recently conducted ward, local government and state Congresses.”
