REPORT—A faction of Delta State All Progressive Congress, APC, led by Chief Joseph Okotie-Eboh, yesterday, called on the Oji Ngofa’s led Delta APC Fact Finding Committee and Reconciliation Panel to release its report on its findings over the Delta APC led Prophet Jones Erue and Chief Okotie-Ebor factions.
Delta State APC chieftains from Delta South Alex Eyengho; Delta North, Mr Fredrick Nwaojei and Mr. Erubu Siakpebru from Delta Central made the call while reacting to a recent media report credited to Chief O’tega Emerhor, in which he said: “There are no impasse, and no faction in Delta APC.”
The Delta APC chieftains in a statement said that the Ngofa’s Fact Finding Committee and Reconciliation Panel was established to visit Delta State APC on August/September, 2015, sequel to the understanding reached at the Delta State stakeholders meeting in the party’s headquarters, Abuja, on June 17, 2015.
The statement explained that at the stakeholders meeting, Chief O’tega Emerhor and leaders of his faction personally attended but it was rumoured that the Ngofa’s committee’s findings had yet to see the light of the day because it was alleged not to have been favourable to one of the Delta APC factions.
The statement said, “A Delta State High Court sitting in Asaba, case where we challenged and to the court to remove Prophet Erue led executive is a public knowledge as the court ruling has not been set aside by any higher court, hence the ruling still subsists till date. It will amount to ignorance for one to insinuate that an appeal lying dormant in an Appeal Court, translates to stay of execution.
“The August/September, 2015 till date is about nine months and is enough for Ngofa’s fact finding committee to come up with a position on the impasse and factions existing in the Delta APC if the truth must be told,” the statement added.
