Rivers APC expels assembly Minority Leader

The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers has expelled Mr Benibo Anabraba, the Minority Leader in the state House of Assembly, over alleged  anti-party activities.

This is contained in a copy of the expulsion letter signed by Chief Davies Ikanya, the APC Chairman in the state, and made available to journalists in Port Harcourt on Monday.

Anabraba is  the  APC legislator representing Akuku-Toru Constituency 2 in the assembly.

The letter stated that the State Working Committee (SWC) of the party expelled Anabraba for allegedly failing to attend meetings to clear the  allegations  against him  after three invitations.

It alleged that  Anabraba’s  refusal to attend the proceedings on the three occasions he was invited   confirmed his disrespect to constituted authority.

“The party considers your wilful and deliberate refusal to make yourself available to answer to the allegations against you as sufficient confirmation that the said allegations against you are true.

“Therefore, the party  pursuant to relevant provisions of the constitution of the APC (Oct. 2014 as amended), particularly Article 21 (A) ii, iii, hereby expels you from the party,”  the letter said.

Efforts by NAN to reach Anabraba for his reaction failed  as he was not in his office at the assembly  and would not pick  calls put through to his GSM line.
