APC Says Victor Giadom, Udosen Remain Party’s Vice Chairman, Secretary Of South-South Zone
The All Progressives Congress (APC) on Monday, said Victor Giadom remains the party’s vice chairman in the South-South geo-political zone.
Giadom is an ally of former minister of transportation, Rotimi Ameachi.
Recall that last Saturday, the zonal committee had sacked Giadom and Ita Udosen, its secretary after a meeting.
The committee accused the duo of sabotage .
The APC in a statement issued on Monday by its Spokesman, Felix Morka, said the action of the zonal committee members was not lawful and therefore null and void.
“The attention of the APC has been drawn to media reports regarding a statement credited to some members of the South-South Zonal Executive Committee of the Party purportedly removing Chief Victor Giadom and Chief Ita Udosen from their positions as Chairman and Secretary of the Zonal Executive Committee, respectively,” Morka said.
“The action of the individuals, who are also signatories to the statement issued in the name of south-south zonal executive committee, is without lawful or constitutional authority, therefore a nullity, and should be disregarded.
“Giadom and Udosen are, and remain, the south-south zonal vice-chairman and secretary of the party, respectively.”
