BREAKING : Igo Aguma Remains Ag Chairman Of Rivers APC

Hon. Igo Aguma still recognized as the Acting Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

In a statement issued on Thursday 16th July 2020 by Livingstone wechie, the Media Adviser to the Acting Chairman, members of the public were asked to disregard rumors that states otherwise.

See Statement


Members of the All Progressives Congress APC in Rivers state and the general public were advised to discountenance the falsehood peddled by mischief makers who are misrepresenting the lofty outcomes of today's proceedings at the Court of Appeal in Abuja.

1. The Court of Appeal declined jurisdiction and disqualified itself entirely from the Appeal in Isaac Ogbobula v. Igo Aguma and others. It took judicial notice of an Appeal filed by the first respondent Applicant Igo Aguma against the rulings of the Appeal Court on July 8, 2020 which was brought via a motion by Emeka Etiaba SAN. It held that it can not seat on Appeal on a matter that is before the Supreme Court of Nigeria.

It therefore declined jurisdiction on the matter and adjourned till further notice pending the determination of the Appeal before the Supreme Court.

2. The Appeal Court never gave any rulings or orders staying the Declaratory Reliefs granted by Justice George Omereji which declared Igo Aguma the Acting Chairman of APC Rivers state.
It could not have done so because the Court has no such powers to stay declaratory reliefs. The Court of Appeal could not have disqualified itself on a matter on Appeal before the Supreme Court and still go ahead to make orders on same issues.

What the Court did was simply to grant a stay on the executor part of the High Court judgement and Not the Declaratory reliefs granted by the High Court. This position has been well explained to the press by Emeka Etiaba SAN at the Court of Appeal and the information is public.

Party faithful are kindly advised to remain resolute and disregard the lies and wish-party thrown around by anyone else who now mischievously impersonates the Acting Chairman of our state chapter in any guise whatsoever. We are used to their propaganda victory that exists only in their dreams.

Igo Aguma is still the Acting Chairman of the APC in Rivers state. We are already at the Supreme Court to seal our victory with God on our side. Justice will be exhaustively done.

Livingstone Wechie,
Media Adviser to the Acting Chairman of APC Rivers state.
