Members of the former State Executive Committee have been described as heroes of the party.
Dr Sokonte Davies, Chairman of the State Caretaker Committee said while speaking to a delegation of former party officials that their contributions in building a virile and strong party would remain evergreen in the minds of members of the APC.
He reassured them of the commitment of the Caretaker Committee to ensure that all segments of the party are carried along and properly accommodated.
Dr Davies said what was important at this stage is the rebuilding process and urged all members to join hands in the task of repositioning the party.
Meanwhile, statutory members of the party Wednesday paid a condolence visit to the Chairman, Dr Sokonte Davies.
Hon. Sampson Egop who spoke on behalf of the delegation expressed the sympathy of members of the party to the bereaved family. Egop prayed that the Lord would grant the family the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.
In his response, Dr Davies thanked his colleagues for their show of love and described his elder sister as a pillar of strength during her life time.
In a related development, members of Ward 2 in the Port Harcourt City Local Government Area have expressed their readiness to work with the Caretaker Committee in order to forge a strong and united party.
Chief Emeka Edeh, a candidate for the House of Assembly in 2019 said as hosts of the State Party Secretariat they were proud to be associated with the extent of progress that has been made despite the diversionary efforts of their son, Hon. Igo Aguma.
Urging Hon Aguma to abandon his fight against the party’s mainstream, members of PHALGA Ward 2 reiterated their loyalty to the Minister of Transportation, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi.
They added that members of the ward were not in support of the moves by their son to destabilize the APC in Rivers State.
