The National Working Committee (NWC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) led by Mr. Adams Oshiomole has sacked the Cross River State executive.

The sack follows a resolution by the NWC at its August 1, 2018 meeting a statement signed by Mr. Oshiomole and the National Secretary, Mai Mala Buni says.

The NWC however upheld the local government and ward congresses.

The statement, according to FearlessReports read in part: “The National Working Committee at its meeting of 1st August, 2018, has reviewed the conduct of the congresses in Cross River State.

“Consequently, the National Working Committee has approved and upheld the conduct of the ward and Local Government Area Congresses as observed by INEC.

“However, the National Working Committee has found that the conduct of the state congress was not in conformity with the party’s constitution and guidelines.

“Accordingly, the National Working Committee has voided the state congress earlier conducted and has ordered for the conduct of fresh state congress in Cross River State immediately.”

Two factions had emerged following two state congresses conducted in May with Mr. Etim John and Mr. Matthew Achigbe heading the different factions.

While Mr. John was inaugurated, reports suggests it was Mr. Achigbe that voted in the national convention.

However, following a letter from the national headquarters of the party to INEC, Mr. John was viewed as the authentic chairman and claimed so recently while the National Vice Chairman, South-South, Mr. Hilliard Eta wrote to INEC claiming there was a court order that barred Mr. John for parading himself as chairman.
