- Disagreements seem to have erupted over the APC membership registration exercise in Delta state
- The Delta chapter of the party is displeased about the accusations trailing the exercise
- All chapters of the party nationwide are conducting the registration exercise
The Delta state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has dismissed claims that Senator Omo-Agege hijacked the registration exercise.
The party in a statement described those behind the allegations as mischief makers intent on tarnishing the image of the deputy Senate president.
According to The Sun, the spokesperson for the party, Nick Ovuakporie, said Omo-Agege was not privy to the whereabouts of registration materials to have warranted such allegations.
The statement partly read:
“The report which is the handiwork of mischief makers and their uncultured collaborators is unfortunate and vexatious as nothing could be more uncharitable than the cheap blackmail being mounted against the person and office of the Deputy President of the Senate by confused and failed serial professional blackmailers who will stop at nothing at dragging his (Senator Ovie Omo-Agege) hard-earned reputation to disrepute.''
The party said those behind the allegation should refrain from defaming the image of the deputy Senate president.
Meanwhile, just one day after the Festus Keyamo expressed fear of imminent violence in the APC membership revalidation exercise in Delta, the ruling party's leadership has suspended the process in the state.
The decision of the national caretaker committee of the APC was made known to its chapter in Delta through a statement by the spokesman, Sylvester Imonina, on Thursday, February 11, Premium Times reported.
Imonina revealed that the national leadership of the party reached the resolve after receiving complaints from some party members on how the exercise is to be conducted.
In another report, Governor Dave Umahi of Ebonyi state has declared that everyone in the southeast wants to join the ruling APC.
The governor made the comment on Wednesday, February 10 when he visited the APC secretariat in Abuja to meet with the caretaker committee chairman of the party and Yobe state governor, Mai Bala Buni.
