Delta North APC Passes No Confidence Vote on Erue
The Delta North caucus of the All Progressive Congress (APC) yesterday accused the State Chairman, Prophet Jones Erue of working against the party’s resolution that the district should produce the party’s candidate in the 2019 governorship election in Delta State.
In a statement signed by the Chairman of Anioma Patriots in APC, Chief Emmanuel Eboha said that Prophet Erue who has always been used by some political cabal in Delta Centra has consistently marginalised, undermined the political interest of Delta North district in APC.
Chief Eboha said that Erue has brazenly usurped official position of Delta northerners in the party , giving the impression that APC is an Urhobo ethnic political party.
Anioma patriots Chairman recalled that the leadership caucus meeting which was convened on Saturday , March 4 , 2017 at the instance of the Minister of state for Petroleum, Dr Ibe Kachiukwu, with notable chieftains of the party in attendance, had resolved to zone the governorship position to Delta North.
According to him, “the state caucus meeting, it should be recalled came prior to a peace meeting held in Abuja by the National chairman,Chief Odgie Oyegun , in which Prof. Pat Utomi, Chief Great Ogboru and Mr. Hyacinth Enuha were physically present. So the Dr. Kachiukwu parley was convened as a follow up peace and reconciliation meeting to distil the rapport of the Abuja peace accord.”
“It is therefore regrettable that the state chairman who was present in person at both meetings could deliberately set up machinations to undo the peace accord already cemented and seek to undermine the relations reached by the national leadership of the party,”he said.
Chief Eboha also said that the Aioma Patriots pass a vote of no confidence on Prophet Erue and to recall on the national leadership of the party to deal decisively on the ugly development and reposition the party on its winsome track of abiding on the existing governorship zoning arrangement in the state.
Meanwhile, APC Chieftain, Chief Emmanuel Nduka equally opposed the rumoured plot to zone the leadership of Delta State chapter of the party to Delta North in the forthcoming congress with plan to alter the governorship zoning arrangement in favour of another senatorial district.
Chief Nduka said that the ill-conceived agenda would strangle the rapidly booming popularity of the APC in the state and eventually kill the party as a widely accepted alternative platform in Delta.
“We have taken notice of ominous plots by some desperate politician to scuttle the political zoning arrangement for the governorship position, which was established since 1999. When the current democratic dispensation took off, Delta Central district was endorsed and massively supported to produce the governor.”
” As far as committed members of the APC are concerned, the governorship position is non-negotiable and our party should work in this popular direction to deliver a candidate of APC from Anioma extraction,” Chief Nduka said.
APC stalwart maintained that the state stands on the tripod and the understanding of the governorship position must remain sacrosanct and should be respected by all political parties.
