The Igo Aguma-led All Progressives Congress, APC, in Rivers State has kicked against the Court of Appeal’s judgment which set aside the High Court decision which declared Aguma chairman of the caretaker committee.
The Appeal Court in Abuja set aside the June 2020 judgment of Justice George Omereji of the State High Court, Port Harcourt, that affirmed Aguma as chairman of the caretaker committee.
It also affirmed Isaac Abbot Ogbobula as chairman of the caretaker committee.
The faction appointed Aguma’s deputy, Ben Chioma, to act temporarily as committee chairman pending the completion of its appeal at the Supreme Court.
A statement by Aguma’s media adviser, Livingstone Wechie, described the judgment as unacceptable.
He said the party would appeal at the Supreme Court.
According to Wechie, the court erred in its decision to rule on the matter that was already a subject of appeal at the Supreme Court.
