The National Working Committee (NWC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has appointed a five-member executive caretaker committee for the Rivers State chapter of the party.
The caretaker committee to oversee the party’s affairs in the state will be chaired by Isaac Ogbobula, the party’s spokesperson, Lanre Issa-Onilu, said.
According to Mr Issa-Onilu, other members are Friday Owhor, Beatrice Amobi, Abolo Stephen and Baridon Badom (Secretary).
Mr Issa-Onilu also provided the timetable to elect new leaders of the APC in Rivers.
The Rivers APC has been in crisis since the build-up to the 2019 elections.
The party in the state split into two factions: one loyal to ex-Governor Rotimi Amaechi and a former senator, Magnus Abe.
The internal wrangling among APC members caused the party to lose out in the Rivers elections as it was disqualified by the Supreme Court.
