RIVERS: Oshiomole says he’s not aware of APC’s alignment with AAC as claimed by Amaechi



Adams Oshiomole

The purported alignment between the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the African Action Congress (AAC) in Rivers state as claimed by Rotimi Amaechi has been denied by Adams Oshiomole.

The National Chairman of the APC who appeared on an interview programme tagged ‘Hard Copy’ on Channels TV said neither he nor the party’s national working committee was aware of any of such alignment.

Oshiomhole said: “I have never spoken at any forum that we have aligned with any party. There is only one party (I oversee) and that is APC, if there is going to be alignment, I will know.

“I can’t choose to be in the know. That has never been discussed with me or with any of the members of the national working committee.”

Recall that the supreme court upheld the annulment of APC primaries and congresses, forcing the party not to field any candidate for the last governorship election.

The court ruling forced Rotimi Amaechi, minister of transportation, to offer the backing of the APC to Awara Biokpomabo, governorship candidate of AAC during the March 9, elections in the state.

While pledging support for the AAC Amaechi had said, “This morning, the leadership of the party met and agreed that we would work with a party called African Action Congress (AAC), while we are still in court to reclaim our mandate.”
