Following the possible scenes of party feuds ongoing in the Delta State chapter of the All Progressive Congress, Chairman of the Revalidation and Registration Committee, Governor Abubakar Bello convened a meeting with the stakeholders of the party in Delta State, the state to resolve all outstanding and impending political crises in states chapter of the APC.
The meeting which had leaders and stakeholders of the party convene in the state was also attended by the minister of state for labor and employment, and other leaders.
However, Leader and huge stakeholder in the Delta State wing of the APC, Deputy Senate President Ovie Omo-Agege was not present at the meeting, although it is quite unclear why Omo-Agege was absent at the meeting, the media is yet to see a reaction from Omo-Agege with respect to his inability to attend the meeting.
Some delta leaders in attendance of the meeting at the APC National Secretariat, Abuja, on Thursday, include, Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo, a former APC governorship candidate, Great Ogboru and Olorogun O’Tega Omerhor.
While addressing the press after the meeting, Abubakar, expressed confidence in the positive outcome of the gathering.
In his words:
It is not unusual in a political process to have differences in opinions and what have you. So, Delta State is a very important state for us in the South-South and we have been able to agree on a workable method to move the party forward.
I hope that going forward, we won’t have to come here from Delta State, they should be able to resolve their issues back home. I believe APC in Delta State is now intact and I also believe APC in Delta State will grow bigger.
Bello also said he was pleased at the success of the exercise recorded so far in various states in the country.
According too him:
Overall, the registration is going on well. I was in Ogun, I have been receiving reports from other zones and the major complaint is that the number of materials which is about 100 per unit is too small.
Also reacting to questions from newsmen about his initial letter on some issues in the state chapter of the party, Minister of State for Labor and Employment, Festus Keyamo, said:
All we are fighting for is equity, justice for all, not advantage to anybody, not even me as minister and that is why we came here in the first place. It was my complaint that ignited this process and then we are all brothers, we are all united.
It is still uncertain if there are some tension or battle for supremacy in the state, the fact that some leaders of the party in the state, are at logger-heads remains conspicuous.
This has no doubt led to the stalling of the current revalidation and registration exercise that was scheduled to hold in the state.
