The National Working Committee (NWC) of the All Progressives Party (APC) led by the action National Chairman, His Excellency Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, today formally swore in Prophet Jones Ode Erue as the duly elected and authentic State Chairman of APC in Delta State, as earlier affirmed by the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja. This lays to rest any doubt on where the national leadership of APC stands on the elected leadership of the party in Delta.*
Prophet Jones who was first elected the Chairman of the Delta State APC in 2014, was re-elected on May 19 this year with the broad support of major leaders of the party within and outside Delta including, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, HE Godwin Obaseki (Edo State Governor), Hon. Etah Hilliard (Vice Chairman, APC South-South), Chief Great Ogboru, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, HM Dr. Ibe Kachikwu, Dr. Alex Ideh, Chief Frank Kokori, Ms Lauretta Onochie (Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari), Dr. Iyke Odikpo, Hon. Stella Okotete (ED, NEXIM Bank), Rt. Hon. Patrick Ideh, Dr. Goodnews Agbi. Chief Esigie, Rt. Hon. Temi Harriman, Rt. Hon. Halims Agoda, and Rt. Hon. (Chief) Edoja. The State Chairman was also overwhelmingly supported by the grassroots of the party.
Guided by the law, justice and its best corporate interest, the party is supreme and bigger than any individual. We encourage all to support and pray for the leadership of the Delta APC under God’s Prophet to succeed.
There are major electoral contests and battles ahead of us to win or loose, depending on what we do. APC can no longer afford to remain electorally barren in Delta. We must reject the idea that it is just okay to have a party that doesn’t win elections because we expect to be rewarded with federal government appointments even if we contribute nothing positive to the electoral fortunes of the party. That must change.
To start with, we have no business hobnobbing, joking or engaging in mercantile dealings with PDP in Delta State. The sins of PDP in Delta are unbelievable and no true APC member should be comfortable with their extreme bad governance. Nocturnal anti-party meetings with PDP ought not to be and should stop if previously enjoyed by professed APC stalwarts. Our sole business is to defeat PDP and put Delta on the path of sane and progressive public governance. To do this, we must take very serious, pragmatic and strategic steps to boldly take them out by all means possible, necessary and proper.
APC Delta has the right leaders and followers to win and make the public governance difference we seek in Delta State and the time is now. We have a duty beyond the ordinary to deliver Delta State to President Buhari, with the Governorship and sweep majority of the legislative seats from North to South, Central inclusive. We trust the Jones State Executive Committee and our true leaders to totally heal the party in the spirit of genuine reconciliation. We don’t have time to waste.
