We didn’t collapse our structure with any party – Abia APC



The secretary of a faction of the All Progressive Congress in Abia State, Perfect Okorie, has said his faction of the party in the state remains intact and has not collapsed structure with any other party.

Okorie spoke against the backdrop of a reconciliation meeting of the two factions of the party in the state on Saturday.

The factional groups of the party and their leaders had met at the weekend and resolved to bury the hatchet and forge a united front ahead of the 2023 general election.

The former chairman of the party in the state, Chief Donatus Nwamkpa, had preached peace and urged party members to jettison divisive activities and embrace the only one APC in Abia, recognised by the national secretariat of the party, with Ikechi Emenike as her flag bearer for the 2023 governorship election.


Nwamkpa, who was the leader of the warring faction had said that the chairman he handed over had also left the party and joined the Labour Party while urging all his supporters to join the united APC under Chief Kingsley Ononogbu as state chairman.

But Okorie, in a reaction, doubted the statement by Nwamkpa, saying it was not true.

He said, “I know that Donatus Nwamkpa, who is our former chairman will not come out to make such comments.

“Abia APC under the acting chairmanship of Hon. Goldie Nwagbara and myself as secretary are still intact, it has not moved, cannot move; it has not negotiated with anybody and is not willing to negotiate with anybody to the extent of saying that we are collapsing our structure.

“We know we are the true APC in the state irrespective of the antics that might be playing around. We are the authentic APC.”

Okorie said if there was any structure that was collapsing, it should collapse with their own, adding that “if there is any faction that exists in anybody’s imagination, they should come and collapse with us.”

On who the governorship candidate of the party is, Okorie said it was Ogah. “On May 25, we held our party governorship primary in tandem with the directives of the NWC of our party which was the direct primary.

“But certain persons, who believed they cannot stand the test of a fair contest, went and conducted a concocted process which they called indirect primary.

“Whatever is the outcome, that is their business. But one thing remains very sacrosanct and that is, there can never be any indirect primary in Abia State, the reason being that apart from the letter written by the national chairman of the party to that effect, it is on record that even INEC noted that Abia APC never conducted any delegates congress to create room for any indirect primary.”

The APC state scribe said, on their own, they conducted the primary according to the directives of the NWC, which produced the former Minister of State for Mines and Steel Development, Uche Ogah, as the party’s flag bearer in the state.

“The process that produced Ogah was duly monitored by INEC and the records are there, so, whatever any other person is doing, remains a mere waste of time”, he said.

Lagos Governorship Elections: Rhodes-Vivour Takes Next Step After Tribunal Verdict

The governorship candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in Lagos, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour has announced his intention to appeal the verdict of the Lagos Governorship Elections Petitions Tribunal.

Rhodes-Vivour stated this in a press release on Tuesday while sharing his stance on the judgement.

He insisted that the essence of democracy not only lies in one’s ability to vote but also the capacity to defend the votes.

The essence of democracy lies not only in our ability to vote but also in our capacity to defend the integrity of that vote.

“Consequently, our laws allow Governorship candidates to challenge the decisions of the electoral tribunals at the Court of Appeal, and up to the Supreme Court. In light of this, my lawyers have been instructed to appeal this judgment, as we remain confident of getting substantial justice at the appellate courts,” he said.

While urging his supporters and Lagosians in general to remain calm, peaceful, and law-abiding, Rhodes-Vivour expressed the hope of getting substantial justice at the appellate courts.

“In these trying times, your unwavering support means the world to us, we must remain united, vigilant, and hopeful.

The ultimate victory may take time to come our way, but it is, we strongly believe inevitable as we have come to understand that the wheels or justice may sometimes grind slowly but it definitely grinds to a sure end,” the LP candidate added.

I’ll continue to fight – Atiku breaks silence on tribunal judgement




The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the last election, Atiku Abubakar, has vehemently rejected the verdict of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal (PEPT).

We recall that PEPT on Wednesday struck out the petition filed by Atiku and his Labour Party (LP) counterpart, Peter Obi, challenging the victory of President Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the February 25 election.

The tribunal held that the petitions by the candidates and their parties lacked merit, upholding the election of Tinubu.

The judgement was delivered by the chairman of the tribunal, Justice Haruna Tsammani, assisted by other members of the panel, namely justices Monsurat Bolaji-Yusuf, Stephen Adah, Moses Ugo, and Abba Mohammed.

Reacting, Atiku, in a press conference in Abuja on Thursday, rejected the verdict, saying the battle to upturn Tinubu’s victory continues.

The former Vice President, who called himself a fighter, said he had instructed his legal team to file an appeal at the Supreme Court.

He said:

“I am here today to give my official reaction to the judgement delivered yesterday by the Presidential Election Petition Court on the 2023 presidential elections.

“As you already know, I approached the court following the declaration by the INEC that the APC and its candidate are the winners of the February 25 elections. My decision to go to court was anchored in my belief that the court is the sanctuary of justice.

“Indeed, I am no stranger to legal battles. I can say that I have a fair idea of how the court system works. All through my career as a politician, I have been a fighter, and I will continue to fight.

“Our aim of conducting credible elections in the country was compromised by INEC through the way it managed the presidential election.

“I am afraid that the judgement of the PEPT yesterday failed to restore confidence in our dream of free and fair elections devoid of human manipulation.

“I am here to tell you that though the judgement of the court yesterday is respected, it is a judgement that I refused to accept.

“I refuse to accept it because I believe it is devoid of substantial justice. I have asked my lawyers to constitutionally activate the guaranteed right to appeal in the higher court.”
