The Rivers state chapter of the All Progressives Congress has recommended Worgu Boms to fill the vacant post of the deputy national secretary of the ruling party.
Boms was picked to replace Victor Giadom who allegedly resigned in 2018 to contest the 2019 governorship election as a running mate.
The Nation reports that the APC national vice chairman, south-south, Hillard Eta, disclosed this to newsmen in Abuja on Saturday, June 20, at the party's national secretariat in Abuja.
Recall that Giadom had earlier declared himself as the acting chairman of the APC following the verdict of an appeal court which upheld Adams Oshiomhole's suspension as the national chairman of the ruling party.
However, a state high court in Rivers on Friday, June 19, restrained Giadom from occupying the office.
The court ruled that Giadom had resigned from being a member of the ruling party's NWC and as such, is not eligible to take the position.
Meanwhile, the former chairman of the APC, John Oyegun, has called for an emergency meeting of the National Executive Committee.
Oyegun in a statement on Saturday said the ruling party is fast becoming a threat to the legacy of President Buhari and his government.
The APC chieftain lamented that the party has “brazenly subverted” its own principles of internal democracy in the past few months.
According to him, the APC’s victory at the 2015 presidential election and the peaceful transfer of power that followed is a major testament of progress in the nation’s democracy.
He, however, said Nigeria is going backward while other African countries have marched forward, learning from the most populous black nation in 2015.
“Our own political party, the APC, is fast becoming the single most dangerous threat to the legacy of our government and our president,” the APC chieftain lamented.
The APC leader's statement elicited huge reactions on social media.
"In other words, the foundation of democracy laid by PDP in 16 years has been dismantled by APC in just 5 years," Obed Etobe commented on Facebook.
"This man started the foundation of crisis in APC and still fuelling more trouble," Olatunde Joseph Akanni alleged.
Umoru Abdullahi Azeez said: "You created all the rot in APC today and any body who wants to correct the rot created by you is seen as an enemy that is the problem the party have today."
Eberechi Jinanwa commented: "Which legacy? Does he have any? What agenda has he presented to Nigerians after 5 years of misrule?"
"I completely agree with you that APC has failed this nation but does Buhari have legacy?" Jazzy Onwujekwe Chukwudi said.
