ACNPN flays alleged exco dissolution report

WARRI—Delta State chapter of Association of Community Newspaper Publishers of Nigeria, ACNPN, has condemned media reports by a group of “its estranged members, who purportedly dissolved the Mr. Felida Essi-led executive,” describing the reports as the handiwork of suspended and former members of the association, who are looking for cheap political patronage ahead 2015  general elections.

ACNPN in a statement by its chairman, Essi and Public Relations Officer, Mr Ebule Anthony, noted that rather than commend the administration, which rented a secretariat for the first time in its history without external support, the sponsors of the report “who are desperate for relevance, attempted in futility” to deceive the public.

They wondered the rationale behind the convening of such a meeting by its suspended Secretary, Prince Charles Umejei, when article 10 section D (1) of the Association’s constitution does not give him the power to  do so without the chairman’s directive, let alone dissolve the executive.

They added that the national executive of the body was fully behind the leadership of Essi.
