Some stakeholders in the Rivers State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress on Monday called on President Muhammadu Buhari to intervene in the crises rocking the party at the state level.

Suleiman Hunkuyi (APC Kaduna North) had separately told newsmen that the congresses did not hold in any part of the state.

"Why did the 7 member state election committee decided not to report to the state in good time to enable it to make adequate arrangement for the Congress, but reported on Friday evening, just a few hours to the Congress?", he asked.

"The APC State Congress Committee in a very frustrating outing gave our members the Nomination Forms for only Two Local Governments out of 23 LGs around 3:55 a.m and that was at the wee hours of the Congress date of 5th May, 2018".

Some members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Katsina south senatorial district have described the ward congresses conducted on Saturday as a jamboree, calling for fresh elections. You can see that the congresses were peaceful.

"We are going to tell Abuja that we rejected this panel and that another independent panel should be constituted to come and do congress in Cross River".

Reacting, the State Publicity Secretary of the APC, Mr. Chris Finebone, said though the former governor, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi, had made it clear that he would not support Abe's governorship ambition, such position did not mean that he (Amaechi) disliked the lawmaker.

Daily Trust reports that Okorocha took the action, despite the state chairman of the party, Hilary Eke and the state organising secretary, Clement Chijioke Anozie, rating the exercise as successful in all the 305 wards in the 27 LGAs of the state.

According to him, "It will be shameful if any delegates' list and elected people come out of last Saturday's exercise in Cross River when result sheets and other materials are in safe custody of the police. Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi said; he said he would not support Senator Magnus Abe's governorship ambition", Finebone stressed.
