The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has dissolved the Rivers State executive committees of the party at all levels and constituted a caretaker committee made up of loyalists of a former governor of the state and current Minister of the FCT, Nyesom Wike.

Addressing newsmen at the end of the National Working Committee (NWC) meeting on Wednesday night in Abuja, the APC National Publicity Secretary, Barrister Felix Morka, said the caretaker committee would be chaired by Chief Tony Okocha, with Chief Eric Nwibani as secretary.

Other members of the Rivers APC caretaker committee to be inaugurated on Friday are Hon. Chibuike Ikenga, Prince Stephen Abolo,

Hon. Silvester Vidin, Senibo Karibi Dan-Jumbo and Miss Darling Amadi.

Okocha is a supporter and political ally of Wike, the FCT minister. Wike is still a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) but was appointed minister of the FCT by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.   

Okocha recently led a delegation of Wike’s loyalists on a courtesy visit to the APC National Chairman, Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, in Abuja, where he accused a former governor of Rivers State and Wike’s political opponent, Rotimi Amaechi, of working against Tinubu in the last election.

He also urged Tinubu not to appoint Amaechi’s loyalists in the current government, but that Wike should be reached directly.

Morka explained that the caretaker committee is mandated to conduct a comprehensive and fresh electronic party registration of all members in the state.

“The caretaker committee, subject to the directives of the NWC, was entrusted with preparing for the conduct of congresses to facilitate the emergence of new executive committees for the party at various levels, extending from the ward to the state,” he added.

The APC spokesman said the caretaker committee has six months within which to deliver on its mandate.
