Legit.ng earlier reported that All Progressive Congress party had intimidated the party members to be expelled without regard to the party’s constitution, by petitioning the court for the outcome of the recently concluded national congress. Such decision was made by the party on the 19th of November during the meeting of party’s national working committee.
According to The Punch report, Ogobo-led Delta factional group commented the decision of the APC’s chairman Adams Oshiomhole to inflict a punishment upon the suspected party members would not make APC withdraw its suit against the party in court.
At the same time, Legit.ng has found that the offended members of the party dared the national executive body led by Adams Oshiomhole during the meeting held in Ughelli on the 21st of November.
In the faction’s letter it is partially stated that the NSC, referring to the situation in the APC chapter in Delta, had no moral right to ask the members of the party not to continue in court, while the Adams Oshiomkholom-led first official appointment of the NWC rushed to court to suit “Oigun government officials” in Delta state without exhausting the internal mechanism of the party.
In the letter, the fractional group blamed Adams Oshiomkholom, adding that those who appealed to the court to return and seek redress against the decision of the working committee should be thanked and not reproached or sanctioned
