The All Progressives Congress in Rivers State says President, Bola Ahmed Tinubu has embarked on a journey in the state that offends God, public morality and good conscience for allegedly ignoring members of the party in his appointments.
Publicity Secretary of the APC Campaign Council in the just concluded elections, Sogbeye Eli disclosed this in a chat with journalists.
According to him, appointing non-APC members into a cabinet formed by the APC is anti-party.
Part of his statement reads,
“President is experienced enough in politics to understand that he has embarked on a journey in Rivers State that offends God, public morality and good conscience as it stands. And I am not going to school his handlers on what the APC Constitution says in Article 9 on the compelling duty or obligation to appoint members of the party over and above other political considerations.
“If any member of the APC should know that appointing non-APC members into a cabinet formed by the APC is an anti-party indulgence, the President who has been our National Leader and one-time Chairman of the APC Board of Trustees, should be the first on the list.
“However, if President Tinubu or his close aides have forgotten, the President is in a position to exercise caution and, in fact, restraint as he is the hand behind the emergence of Dr. Muiz Banire (SAN) and Babatunde Ogala (SAN) as National Legal Advisers of the All Progressives Congress. No other leader of our great party enjoys that privilege. So there can be no excuse of ignorance of the provisions of the party’s Constitution from that quarters.
“Against that backdrop therefore, let the President come to the realization as stated by a former American President that everything rises and falls with his leadership in the circumstance and effecting corrections to the manifest errors of judgement over Rivers State.
