A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Chukwuemeka Eze has slammed Senator Magnus Abe (APC-Rivers South East) for opening of “an illegal Rivers APC Parallel Secretariat.”
In a statement on Wednesday, the party chieftain recalled that the lawmakers faction had claimed that leaders of the APC would attend the commissioning of the building.
He said: “I am shocked that Senator Abe, who is a respected legal practitioner, could involve himself in such an illegality and rascality of opening a parallel State Secretariat of a party that is very much united.”
Eze also stated that for a factional party to exist, there must be a parallel congress conducted by aggrieved party members.
“Opening a parallel State Executive in the circumstance is not only mischievous, ill-conceived, sad and illegal but is also tantamount to anti-party activities, which is a very serious offence if the party’s constitution is to be strictly followed,” he added.
