Sapele—The just concluded ward and local government congresses of All Progressives Congress, APC, in Delta State, have divided the party structure in the state into two, with one side praising the conduct of the election while the other side is opposing same and had called for its cancellation.
The division is coming just as an APC leader in the state, Major Isaac Tobore (rtd), who is aspiring to be the state chairman of the party, said that the elections were inconclusive and massively rigged, adding that what happened was a charade and a game of selection done by decampees from other political parties outside the congress venues, against the dictate of the party, the will and interest of the original party members. He called for the cancellation of the entire elections.
Those applauding the congresses are said to be made up of decampees from other political parties, who recently joined the party while the other side opposing the congresses is said to be made up of all former members of the defunct Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN, the All Nigeria Peoples Party, ANPP, and the Congress for Progressive Change, CPC, the three parties that collapsed into APC in the state, who are currently calling for the cancellation of the excercise.
