APC dissolves Rivers exco, appoints seven-member caretaker committee

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has dissolved its executive council in Rivers state and appointed a seven-member caretaker committee.

The APC in Rivers has been engulfed in a crisis.

In April, about two months after President Bola Tinubu was announced winner of February’s presidential election, the party suspended Emeka Beke, its chairman in the state, over alleged anti-party activities and financial misconduct.

At the time, Omiete Eferebo, deputy chairman of the Rivers APC, took charge of the party.


Speaking with reporters in Abuja on Wednesday, Felix Morka, APC national spokesperson, said the caretaker committee would be in place for six months.

Morka said Abdullahi Ganduje, APC national chairman, has directed the committee to conduct a comprehensive and fresh electronic party registration of all members in the state.

“The caretaker committee subject to the directives of the NWC was entrusted with preparing for the conduct of congresses to facilitate the emergence of new executive committees for the party at various levels, extending from the ward to the state,” he said.


The caretaker committee will be inaugurated on Friday at the party’s national secretariat in Abuja.

Members of the panel are;

  • Tony C. Okocha – Chairman
  • Eric Nwibani – Secretary
  • Chibuike Ikenga
  • Stephen Abolo
  • Silvester Vidin
  • Senibo Karibi Dan-Jumbo
  • Darling Amadi
