Etche APC Leadership Crisis Assumes New Twist

The crisis of leadership rocking the All Progressives Congress in Etche Local government area of Rivers state has assumed a new twist with former house of representatives member Ogbonna Nwuke suspended at the ward level.

The suspension of Ogbonna Nwuke was announced by the chairman of the APC in ward 5 Okechukwu Nwuke after a meeting by the ward leadership in the Party, the Etche APC ward 5 executives also advised the leadership of the party at the state and national level to see the development as protecting the interest of the party.

You would recall that Ogbonna Nwuke had on Tuesday addressed a news conference in Port Harcourt where he read a communique purportedly signed by 11 of the 17 member APC caucus in Etche removing chief Allwell Onyeso as chairman of the APC caucus, the announcement has since been countered by Chief Onyesoh and the Etche APC chairman Elder Musa Elekwa who both dismissed the action by the Nwuke led group.
