‘APC Not Aligning With Any Party in Rivers’, Oshiomhole Disowns Amaechi
Adams Oshiomhole says the All Progressives Congress (APC) is not in alignment with any other party in Rivers state.
Speaking when he featured on a Channels TV programme on Friday, the APC national chairman said neither him nor the party’s national working committee is aware of any of such alignment.
The APC did not field any candidate for the Rivers governorship election after the supreme court upheld the annulment of the party’s primaries and congresses.
But Rotimi Amaechi, minister of transportation, had said the APC will throw its weight behind Awara Biokpomabo, governorship candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC) in the state.
“This morning, the leadership of the party met and agreed that we would work with a party called African Action Congress (AAC), while we are still in court to reclaim our mandate,” he had said.
Oshiomhole, however, denied such alignment and said it has never been discussed with him.
The APC chairman said: “I have never spoken at any forum that we have aligned with any party. There is only one party (I oversee) and that is APC, if there is going to be alignment, I will know.
“I can’t choose to be in the know. That has never been discussed with me or with any of the members of the national working committee.”
