Press Release:                                           CROSS RIVER APC MOVES TO ELECT SUBSTANTIVE STATE CHAIRMAN
The Cross River State chapter of the All Progressives Congress has resolved to elect a substantive State Chairman of the party in the state.

The party had earlier in a meeting of the State Working Committee on Saturday August 15, 2020 resolved to replace the late Dr. Matthew Ojong Achigbe who died in a ghastly motor accident in  November, 2018 with a nominee from the Obubra local government chapter of the party.

Achigbe hailed from Obubra local government area and has to be replaced with a nominee from the Obubra chapter as prescribed by relevant statutes or precepts of the party.

The decision of the Working Committee to begin the process of shopping for Achigbe's replacement came on heels of submission of seven (7) nominees from the Obubra chapter to the State Working Committee (SWC); during its emergency meeting on Monday, August 17, 2020 at the party secretariat along Barracks Road, Calabar.

The SWC had earlier, specifically listed the vacant positions to be filled to include those of State Chairman, State Assistant Secretary, State Assistant Welfare Secretary, Vice Chairman (Central Senatorial District) and Zonal Woman Leader (Central Senatorial District).

The SWC had given an ultimatum of two (2) weeks within which the process of filling the vacant positions would have been concluded.

State Woman Leader of the party, Hon. Esther Bepeh had declared that as one of the highest Party Official from the Central Senatorial District where the Late Achigbe hailed from, she was in receipt of the correspondence from the Obubra chapter of the party detailing the names and profile of the seven (7) nominees from the two state constituencies of the Obubra local government area for the chairmanship position.

Members of the SWC had unanimously adopted the said correspondence as a working document of the committee.

They also unanimously promised to deliberate on the issue with other relevant organs and stakeholders of the party in the overall interest of the peace,unity and stability of the party.

State Acting Chairman, Sir. John Ochala who presided over the meeting, appreciated the efforts of members in initiating a sense of direction for the party at all times and assured of wide and universal consultation to perfect on the peace and reconciliation process within the party.
