Delta APC Chieftain calls for the Establishment of Presidential Liaison Offices

Elder Statesman and Delta APC chieftain, Chief Patrick Ideh has called on the Presidency to establish in each state of the federation the office of Presidential Liaison Officer to oversee the activities of the federal government.

In a statement in Effurun, Delta state, Chief Ideh regretted that the APC federal government had been doing a lot of development in Delta state, but because most of these services were channeled through state agencies, the benefits were played down

According to him, during the Shagari era between 1979/84, the Presidential Liaison Officers guaranteed the image of the federal government in the states

Chief Ideh, a former member of the House of Representatives(1979/83) said as a statutory Delta APC executive member, himself and others could save the crisis ridden Delta APC and successfully build it up with sincerity, in partnership with trusted party elders, leaders and the minister representing Delta State in the federal executive council.

He pointed out that suing the party to court was against the provision of Article 21(D)5 of the constitution  which renders the culprit automatic expulsion from the party. “Thus Prophet Erhue fellow travelers stand expelled and cannot be part of any structure of our party”
