Below is the communique:
A COMMUNIQUE ISSUED BY THE DELTA STATE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE OF THE ALL PROGRESSIVES CONGRESS (APC) ON THIS DAY THE 31ST MARCH, 2023.
This communique is issued after a careful and thorough deliberation on the issue of the expulsion of the Deputy President of the Senate, from the All Progressives Congress, as recommended by his Ward Executive Committee (The Orogun Ward 2), via the LGA Executive Committee of Ughelli North LGA. After due consultations and critical investigations into the issues of concern, as raised by the ward executive committee, which bother on the following:
(1) HIGH HANDEDNESS: He greedily and illegally hljacked the party from the ward to the state and personally handpicked the National Publicity Secretary, without due consultations with any of the leaders of the party in the state.
(2), MISAPPROPRIATION AND SYPHONING OF ELECTION FUNDS: All funds sent to the state during the presidential and Governorship Elections were confiscated by the Deputy President of the Senate, and he never consulted with any party leader or disbursed the money for the purpose it was meant for, which was one of the major reasons for our poor performances in both elections.
(3) ANTI-PARTY ACTIVITIES. Senator Ovie Omo-Agege entered into unholy alliance with the leadership of Labour Party in the state, with the understanding that he and his people will work for HE Peter Obi, while in return, the Labour Party so-called “Obi-dients”, would vote for him during the governorship elections. This action of his was distasteful and irresponsible.
This his anti party activities accounted for the abysmal performances of our party in both the presidential and governorship elections, since the so-called Obi-dients, reneged on their part of the deal, after he has instructed his people to work for their presidential candidate.
