APC to contest in Rivers LG election

The All Progressives Congress in Rivers State has indicated interest in the local government election in Rivers State.

This was made known by chairman of the party’s caretaker committee in Port Harcourt, the state capital on Thursday when he received concerned members of the party from Obio/Akpor Local Government Area.

Okocha revealed that the party leadership in the state has already notified Governor Siminalayi Fubara that the LG election must be conducted at the expiration of the tenure of the current chairmen and councillors, according to Leadership.

The APC caretaker committee Chairman insisted that there would be no room for a caretaker committee for the local government councils. He urged all aggrieved members of the APC in Rivers State to return and join the party to rebuild its structure as soon as possible.

Okocha said, “We received former state Assembly candidates of SDP and their supporters. No division, my doors are always open.”

The publicity secretary of the APC caretaker committee, Hon. Chibuike Ikenga, also stated that the party’s doors are open for members willing to join the fold.

Ikenga said, “This is a new APC. Our doors are open, and our hands are open to welcome those willing to join the APC.”
