Nabena faults Giadom's endorsement as Oshiomhole’s replacement

The All Progressives Congress (APC) deputy national publicity secretary, Yekini Nabena has faulted the endorsement of Victor Giadom as the party's replacement for embattled national chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole. 

Nabena faults Giadom's endorsement

Nabena made his stance known while speaking to journalists in Abuja on Saturday, March 14. Giadom, the deputy national secretary of the party was recently endorsed by some APC leaders from the south-south. Nabena who is from Bayelsa state and a major stakeholder in the party, says he is not in agreement with the decision. 

He said Giadom was not fit to be Oshiomhole's replacement due to his resignation from the APC National Working Committee (NWC) in 2014. According to Nabena, Giadom officially resigned his position in the NWC to contest as running mate to the party's 2019 governorship candidate in Rivers State, Tonye Cole. 

He also questioned the legality of the NEC meeting, stressing that it is "strange and an aberration that Giadom still attends meetings of the NWC and could call for an NEC meeting. 

The Bayelsa-born politician called on stakeholders in the party not to lose sight of due process and the dictates of the APC's constitution. “The meeting was neither convened nor attended by the APC national vice chairman (south-south), Hilliard Eta and leader of the party in the region Deputy Senate President, Ovie Omo-Agege. 

“Hence, all decisions reached the purported meeting is a nullity and definitely does not reflect the views and stand of the party's south-south caucus,’’ he said. 

“Specifically, on the purported meeting's request that the APC NEC confirms Victor Giadom as acting national chairman, we cannot be taken for a ride because of the political and 2023 presidential aspirations of his (Giadom) sponsor and godfather who is attempting to control the party's structure,’’ he added. 

Meanwhile, the Bayelsa state chapter of the APC has suspended 12 of its chieftains alleging that they engaged in anti-party activities. 

Senator Heineken Lokpobiri, a former governorship aspirant in the state and a former member of Buhari Campaign Council, Preye Aganaba, and state deputy chairman, Orubebe Ogeibiri are among those suspended.
