2019: Delta APC chairmen at loggerheads over Ogboru
By Perez Brisibe
UGHELLI—MOVES by some local government area chairmen of All Progressives Congress, APC, in Delta State to endorse a chieftain of the party, Chief Great Ogboru, as its sole governorship candidate ahead of the 2019 general election, have pitched the chairmen against each other with 10 of them distancing themselves from the Valentine Egbe- led Delta State APC Chairmen/Secretaries Forum.
The aggrieved chairmen, under the aegis of Delta Central LGA Chairmen/Secretaries and others from Delta North, in a resolution at the end of an emergency meeting weekend in Ughelli, also passed a vote of confidence in Olorogun O’tega Emerhor as the leader of the party in the state.
In a communiqué by its chairman, Olorogun Felix Ekure and 16 others, they distanced themselves from any plot to endorse Ogboru as a sole governorship candidate of the party.
They said: “Olorogun Ogboru is only known and recognised by the Delta Central LGA Chairmen/Secretaries Forum as an APC member from Ethiope-East Local Government Area of the state, and also one of the rumoured gubernatorial aspirants for the 2019 contest, nothing more, nothing else.”
“That the Delta Central LGA Chairmen and Secretaries Forum, ceases to be part of the Mr. Valentine Egbe’s led Delta State Chairmen/Secretaries Forum beginning from this day and the public should also take note.”
