The crisis rocking the Delta State chapter of All Progressives Congres, APC, has escalated with the alleged swearing in of the factional chairman of the party, Prophet Jones Erue, by Mr Adams Oshiomhole, National Chairman of the APC.
This came despite a subsisting court order restraining Oshiomhole and the APC from recognising any other person than the Chief Cyril Ogodo-led State Working Committee that was sworn in by the then Chief John Odigie-Oyegun-led NWC.
There are about four other pending suits in the matter at present.
It will be recalled that Oshiomhole, just two days after his assumption of office as the party’s National Chairman, had assisted the Ogboru/Agege faction to procure a consent judgment setting aside the executives duly elected and inaugurated by the Odigie-Oyegun-led NWC, a move that had torn the party apart in Delta State.
Some members of Chief Ogodo-led SWC, duly elected by congress conducted by the Oyegun-NWC and inaugurated by same, had challenged the party’s national chairman’s action and obtained a high court order stopping the inauguration of any other SWC.
