A Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress and former Deputy Chairman of the APC, Chief Cyril Abeye Ogodo has congratulated the newly authenticated Chairman of the APC in Delta State, Prophet Jones Erue Ode. Prophet Jones Erue Ode was officially sworn-in as Chairman of Delta APC by the National Working Committee of the APC in a formal ceremony that held at the National Secretariat of the Party.
Until the authentication of Prophet Jones Erue Ode and his exco, Chief Cyril Ogodo was the factional Chairman of the Party who emerged from the parallel Congresses that were recently held.
Chief Cyril Ogodo stated that the authentication of Prophet Jones Erue Ode came to him as a huge surprise, but the fact that the National body of the Party has duly signed the authenticity of the Jones led exco leaves him with no option but to accept the resolution of the NWC of the Party. He further stated that while the decision of the NWC to recognize the Jones led exco puts him and his exco on the dark side of the whole situation, he cannot continue to fight the NWC of the Party as that would amount to a Political suicide mission.
He further urged his followers to remain calm and focused as arrangements are already being made to consolidate the Party and work with the Prophet Jones led Exco in order for the Party to actively participate and win the next general election.
