The attention of the All Progressives Congress, Rivers State, has been drawn to an appointment of a certain Director General for Mr. Tonye Cole as Gubernatorial candidate for Rivers APC.
We wish to state categorically and, as the public very well knows, that the Rivers State High Court has since voided the purported Indirect Primaries organized by the Minister of Transportation, Rt. Rotimi Amaechi and indeed, all the purported Party officers handpicked by the same Minister as led by Ojukaye Flag Amachree.
This latest desperate move by the Minister Amaechi-led section of the party in the face of the contested suit which the minister and his group lost, is a continuation of the disrespect and contempt with which this group holds the sacred temple of Justice with its concomitant effect for peace in the state.
We urge the minister and his group to stop giving politics and politicians a bad name with the way and manner they are disrespecting court orders.
We state,for the avoidance of doubt, that Mr Tonye Cole is not the candidate of APC Rivers state and there can therefore be no DG for a non existent candidate.
The public is hereby advised to disregard the ill-advised and illegal appointment.
Rivers State APC Chairman.
