To politics, APC deputy national publicity secretary, Yekini Nabena has faulted the endorsement of Victor Giadom as the party's replacement for embattled national chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.
Nabena made his stance known while speaking to journalists in Abuja on Saturday, March 14. Giadom, the deputy national secretary of the party was recently endorsed by some APC leaders from the south-south.
Nabena who is from Bayelsa state and a major stakeholder in the party, says he is not in agreement with the decision.
He said Giadom was not fit to be Oshiomhole's replacement due to his resignation from the APC National Working Committee (NWC) in 2014.
According to Nabena, Giadom officially resigned his position in the NWC to contest as running mate to the party's 2019 governorship candidate in Rivers state, Tonye Cole.
He also questioned the legality of the NEC meeting, stressing that it is "strange and an aberration that Giadom still attends meetings of the NWC and could call for a NEC meeting. The Bayelsa-born politician called on stakeholders in the party not to lose sight of due process and the dictates of the APC's constitution.
