An APC chieftain in Ogbudugbudu Ward 10, Warri North Local Government Area of Delta State, Comr. Prince Igbiriki has thrown his weight behind the Delta South APC leadership for reconciling their differences and rejecting the Ward and Local Government Congresses in the state.
This was contained in a statement he personally signed and issued to newsmen in Warri yesterday, a copy of which was sent to The Liberator Newspapers Worldwide.
The statement reads in full below:
Sequel to the ongoing All Progressive Party Congress and the developmental stride of the present administration led by president Muhammadu Buhari (GFSR) and the show of demonstration of goodwill to Nigerians. We are convinced that you have truly provided hope and good leadership for economic sustainability in Nigeria.
I wish to sincerely appreciate the Peoples General, Chief Great Ovedje Ogboru for his act of selfless services and standing to uphold the principle of fairness and justice and designing a roadmap for unity/ wining mentality for Delta state APC.
Standing with the leadership of APC Delta south, it is true that they have made leadership exemplified by putting a round peg in a round hole, a word of thanks won’t be enough to appreciate (1) Dr Alex Ideh Co Chairman Delta APC leadership council (2) Hon. George Timinimi Former commissioner Delta state (3) AVM RT Okorodudu (4) Prof. Orubibi (5) Sir A.S Men’s (6) Hon. Lawrence Akpeti, we wish to strongly support the communique reached by the Delta south expanded leadership meeting held in Esisi road at PK hotel Warri to affirm the position of the party that there was no Ward/ LGA congress and would not partake in the state Congress because of irregularities and lack of internal democracy.
We want to equally appreciate the APC leadership in Warri North led by Dr Alex Ideh, Sir A.S Mene and comrade Graham S.W Abulu who is a famous leader of the Ijaw extraction for his unwavering dogged leadership sagacity to take the party to an enviable height.
Based on this fact, we want to send a strong message of warning to all political birds and stipend oriented politician in Warri North and Delta state to retreat from self destruction and to stop running after overnight/already made political leaders.
Conclusively, It is my prayer for every members of the APC in Warri North and Delta state to come together with one spirit to fight our common enemy and do away with unprofitable individualistic tendencies that will cause the party more pain.
Comrade Prince Igbiriki, APC Leader, Ward 10, Warri North and
Former Chairman IYC, Egbema kingdom.
