DELTA: Omo-Agege backs Ogboru faction, holds congress against NWC directive
Although the National Working Committee (NWC) of All Progressive Congress (APC) had rescheduled the party’s congress in Delta state, a faction of the party supported by the controversial Senator Ovie Omo-Agege on Saturday held a parallel congress to elect the state working committee.
As at the time of this report, the congress was on-going at the St. Mulumba Primary/Secondary School, Okpanam, and in attendance are Senator Omo-Agege who represents Delta Central at the Senate.
Omo-Agege is backing the faction led by Chief Great Ogboru a four-time governorship candidate in the state.
The NWC of the APC earlier in a letter addressed to the chairman of Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and signed by APC’s National Secretary, Mr. Mai Mama Buni, confirmed to have rescheduled the party’s congress.

According to the letter, “We refer to our letter reference No: APC/NHDQ/INEC/19/018/12 dated 27th April, 2018. “We wish to advice that we have rescheduled the conduct of our state congresses in Delta State to Monday 21st May, 2018.”
Ripples Nigeria gathered that the rescheduling of the congress was due to internal disputes among the party leaders and chieftains of the party in the state.
