Some members trying to scuttle registration, revalidation exercise – Rivers APC

The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State has said there are plans to scuttle its proposed membership registration and revalidation exercise.

The party alleged that those conspiring to stop the exercise are planning to use the courts.

The party’s Acting Caretaker Committe Chairman, Issac Abbot-Ogbobula, said some party members are desperate in their bid to stop an exercise that had not taken off.

He added that a judicial pronouncement will be given to bar the Rivers chapter of the APC from participating or conducting or going on with the allegedly proposed registration and revalidation of membership exercise.

He said some members had instituted a suit against APC leadership to buttress his claim.

He said: “Let us put the record straight, APC in Nigeria does not have any intention of conducting revalidation and registration of membership exercise on 12th January, 2021, APC Nigeria is not a secret cult, every major programme it conducts is always in the public space and domain, there is no such announcement, advertorial or publication.”

According to Abbot-Ogbobula, the party had petitioned the State Chief Judge over the matter.

“We have duly submitted the petition to the Chief Judge of Rivers state since Friday, 7th of January 2021, we have served a petition … and it has been uploaded as required by the rules of the court.”
