Rivers APC: Aguma Moves To Shut Down Sokonte Davies Splinter Group



Acting chairman of Rivers State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Igo Aguma, has moved to shut down a factional group of the party in the state led by Sokonte Davies to pave way for peace and reconciliation in the party.

Aguma took this initiative in a statement he issued weekend  following the recommendation he submitted in his situation report in Rivers State APC to the National Caretaker Committee of the Party led by Mai Bala Buni, which gave directive that groups not recognized by

the party’s rules should be closed, which is in line with a court decision.

He therefore advised the splinter group in the Rivers APC led by Sokonte Davies to immediately comply with the directive of the state Caretaker Committee of the party and shut down all factional

Secretariats in the state including his own at 63 Aba road Port Harcourt.

“Sokonte Davies is reminded along with his splinter group that their actions are not promoting peace and reconciliation efforts in the state chapter.  The Court has taken a decision confirming myself as Acting Chairman of the Caretaker Committee of the party in the state, and all statutory members constituting the Committee,” he added.





Aguma also decried the litigation filed against his chairmanship of

the party in the state despite   the directive of President Muhammadu

Buhari and the national leadership of the party that no court action

should be taken by members in the party to pave way for





“The issues of further litigations by some members are contrary to

the directive of President Muhammadu Buhari that all court cases

instituted by members of the party be withdrawn to pave the way for

peace and reconciliation.




“Surprisingly, immediately after the directive by the President and

further directive by the National Caretaker Committee on same subject

via a letter,  we were served by Appeal Court actions, by some members

of the party including those who are using the name of the party to

litigate over Rivers State chapter,” he said.
