The Minister of Niger Delta Affairs and the leader of the All Progressive Congress in Akwa Ibom state has been removed today as factional head.

The state chapter of the party made the announcement in it second stakeholders meeting in Uyo through Ita Udosen, the state caretaker committee chairman, who said that the state leadership status confirmed on Akpabio by a fraction in the party has been formally nullified.

The VANGUARD had reported that according to a chapter in a communique, it was explained that going by the party’s constitution, the elected state chairman of the party is the head of the caucus in the state.

The Party further noted that it is therefore null and void for any faction to confer leadership status on Akpabio.

The APC said: “That the Party hereby reminds every member and the general public that the State Chairman (or Caretaker Chairman as applicable here) is the Chairman of the State Caucus as provided for in Article 12.9 Sub (i) of the party Constitution (October 2014 As Amended) and remains the Party Leader in the State until further notice.”

In another report by The PUNCH, it was made known that Salihu Lukman, the director-general of the Progressives Governors Forum (PGF) in a paper titled, “Determining Factors for 2023 Contests in APC: Internal Contest and Inconvenient Reality” advised member of the ruling party against having what he called “blind trust” in some of the leaders, stressing further that the APC may not have its candidate to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari if they have to continue this way.
