CROSS River State chapter of All Progressives Congress, APC, has called on law enforcement agencies to arrest the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Pastor Usani Usani, for allegedly inciting people against the party.
Briefing newsmen, yesterday, in Calabar, the state Chairman of APC, Dr. Matthew Achigbe, said the Minister had offended the party.
His words: “The exercise did not have the backing of the law. We want to state categorically that the declaration was not only false, illegal and undemocratic but criminal in every sense. The party held an authentic primary election in October, 2018 in all the wards.
“The constitution of our great party, in Section 13.4 (XIV), provides that the National Working Committee, NWC, shall organise primary elections for the nomination of its presidential candidate, governorship candidates, and candidates into the National and State Assemblies.
“It, therefore, goes to show that any purported primary election that falls short of the above provisions of the constitution is null and void. Permit us to also observe that Pastor Usani has a sinister motive.’’
