Ward congress: Delta APC passes vote of confidence in CECPC
By by Benjamin Arida://
Following last Saturday’s nationwide ward congress of the All Progressives Congress, APC, the Delta State caucus of the party, has passed a vote of confidence in the Governor Mai Mala Buni-led Caretaker/Extra-Ordinary Convention Planning Committee, CECPC.
The caucus, in a statement issued yesterday and made available to journalists in Abuja, said the latest attack on the national leadership of the party was orchestrated by “mischief-makers operating under the false and lawless style of Delta State APC Leaders Council.”
“Few but noisy, they are bent on derailing the broadly successful Governor Mai Mala Buni-chaired CECPC, but it will never happen on our watch,” the statement jointly signed the Delta State APC Caretaker Chairman, Prophet Jones Ode Erue; Deputy Senate President, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege; Senator Peter Nwaoboshi representing Delta North Senatorial District; former Military Administrator of Abia State, Air Vice Marshall Frank Ajobena (rtd); a member of Board of Trustees of APC and 2015 governorship candidate, Olorogun Otega Emerhor; National Woman Leader, CECPC, Hon. Stella Okotete and 18 others stated
The caucus declared its satisfaction with the conduct of the ward congress in the state which it stated was duly monitored by officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.
It identified the main “grouse of this ‘Axis of Artificial Troubles’ against the CECPC is its total support for an all-inclusive growth strategy for our party in Delta State.”
While pointing out that the strategy has been working miracles everywhere in Delta, as the APC continues to take new grounds with credit to the purposeful leadership of Omo-Agege, Erue and the commitment of other leaders, the caucus said ,”we are pleased with the CECPC’s preference for pragmatic, result-driven politics instead of narrow, selfish and unproductive politics.”
It reminded “those fanning embers of disunity that political leadership is about capacity, not noisemaking, blackmail and empty threats.”
“We advise again that it is better for the broom to sweep together. No scheme will taint the massive success recorded by the CECPC at the just concluded Ward Congress nationwide, including Delta State. We are satisfied with the conduct of the ward congress exercise which was duly monitored by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, and congratulate our new ward executives in the 270 wards of Delta State.
“Accordingly, we pass a vote of implicit confidence on the national leadership of the APC under the guidance of His Excellency, Hon. Mai- Malam Buni and all members of the CECPC for steadying the sailing of our great party with great results to show for it. The CECPC deserves our full support, not vilification,” the caucus declared.
