Just a week ago, Oshiomole threatened to penalize members of the APC who hauled the party to court without depleting internal mechanism.
The Delta State faction of the All Progressives Congress driven by Chief Cyril Ogodo has said no measure of terrorizing and extortion by the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole, will compel partners to pull back court cases against the party.
From an emergency meeting of pioneers and stakeholders of the party, under the aegis of Mainstream Delta APC, in Ughelli on Wednesday, they denounced what they portrayed as an endeavor by Oshiomhole to compel them to pull back court cases.
A statement issued at the end of the meeting and signed by the state factional Chairman, Chief Cyril Ogodo, reads in part, “The NWC as presently constituted with particular reference to the situation in the Delta State APC chapter, lacks the moral right to ask party members not to continue in court whereas the first official assignment of the NWC led by Comrade Adams Oshiomhole was to rush to court to obtain a ‘contemptuous consent judgment’ against perceived ‘Oyegun state executives’ in Delta without exhausting internal party mechanism.
“Those going to court today to seek redress and upturn the infamous consent judgment should be commended and not vilified or sanctioned for following the precedent set by the party’s national chairman on assumption of office when he unilaterally went to court, an action the members of the NWC are not on record to have frown at.”
