GIADOM, UDOSEN REMAIN APC SOUTH SOUTH LEADERS
The National Working Committee (NWC) of the ruling All Progressives Congress ( APC) has nullified the purported removal of the party’s National Vice Chairman, Chief Victor Giadom and the Zonal Secretary, Chief Ita Udosen.
The party in a statement in Abuja on Monday by the National Publicity Secretary ( NPS), Barrister Felix Morka, said the two officials remain the leaders of the party in the zone.
The decision to sack Giadom and Udosen was taken at an extraordinary meeting held in Port Harcourt by the zonal chapter of the party at the weekend.
The two leaders were removed in line with sections 13, 25, 14 and 21 of the APC constitution for refusing to call for meetings and scuttling every effort to gather together to transact the political business of the zone among other allegations.
But Mr Morka said the party officials who announced the removal of Giadom and Udosen lacked the power to do so.
The party’s statement reads: “The attention of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has been drawn to media reports regarding a statement credited to some members of the South-South Zonal Executive Committee of the Party purportedly removing Chief Victor Giadom and Chief Ita Udosen from their positions as Chairman and Secretary of the Zonal Executive Committee, respectively.
“The action of the individuals, who are also signatories to the statement issued in the name of South-South Zonal Executive Committee, is without lawful or constitutional authority, therefore a nullity, and should be disregarded.
“Giadom and Udosen are, and remain, the South-South Zonal Vice Chairman and Secretary of the Party, respectively,” Morka declared.
