Delta APC Reconciliation Committee, Unconstitutional – Ukusare


A legal counsel and member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Delta State, Michael E. Ukusare, Esq., has raised alarm over a constitutional error that could undermine the party’s reconciliation efforts.

In a letter to the State Chairman, Elder Omeni Sobotie, Ukusare pointed out that the appointment of Olorogun O’tega Emerhor as Chairman of the Reconciliation Committee by an “Expanded State Caucus” is unconstitutional.

Ukusare, who has played significant roles in protecting the party’s interests, including pro bono court appearances, emphasized that the only reason the current State, Local Government, and Ward Executives are still in office is due to his successful court outing for the party at the instance of the Deputy President of the 9th Senate, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege.

The letter highlighted that the party’s successes in the 2023 elections, including winning two senatorial seats and eight seats in the House of Representatives and State House of Assembly, are being threatened by the unconstitutional actions of the State Chairman.

Ukusare stressed that any efforts to build on these successes must be guided by the party’s constitution and the law.

Ukusare’s letter emphasized that:

The APC Constitution does not recognize an “Expanded State Caucus” and any actions taken by such a body are null and void.

The State Chairman, Elder Omeni Sobotie, unilaterally called and chaired the meeting of the “Expanded State Caucus” on April 22, 2024, which is a breach of the party’s constitution.

The composition of the State Caucus is clearly defined in Article 12, paragraph 10 of the party’s constitution, leaving no room for ambiguity or subjective interpretations.

The inclusion of two women per Senatorial District (a total of six women) into the State Caucus must be done collectively by the State Executive Committee (SEC), not one individual.

The SEC must urgently meet to constitute the Emerhor Reconciliation and Peace Committee lawfully and properly to avoid any legal challenges.

Ukusare’s noted that his sole interest is the success of Olorogun Emerhor’s peace-building efforts as a respected leader of the party, subject to the party’s constitution and the law.
