Storm hits Delta APC over 2023 Election Woes

There are indications that all may not be well within the Delta State chapter of the All Progressive Congress (APC) after the party lost its bid to take over the governance of the state at the Supreme Court last week.

The apex court had dismissed the appeal of the governorship candidate of the party, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, seeking to over turn the judgements of the lower courts that earlier upheld the election of Governor Sheriff Oborevwori of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the March 18, 2023 contest.

Although, Omo-Agege has since congratulated Oborevwori, wishing well in his tenure, sources within the party’s rank in the state claimed that another round of crisis is brewing.

Some stakeholders of the party are said not to be happy with Elder Omeni Sobotie-led State Executive Committee over how funds were handled during the electioneering period.

Besides, it was further learnt that some chieftains are peeved by the way things panned out particularly with the party congresses that produced the leadership at various levels.

Inside sources hint that the party lost the governorship election it was poised to win due largely to the structure of it’s leadership and alleged mismanagement of election funds.

As a result, there are calls for a post mortem of the election that would lead to proper auditing of political activities within the party and avoid looming crisis that might linger into 2027.

In a leaked document sighted by our correspondent, stakeholders are calling on the chairman, Elder Sobotie, to convene a meeting to review the 2023 general election in the state.

The proposed stakeholders’ meeting is expected to examine the root cause(s) of the party’s failure to win the election despite perceived massive overflow of goodwill for the candidate, Omo-Agege.

According to the document, the meeting would involve all members of SEC, LGA chairmen, all elected party leaders and critical stakeholders/leaders across the state.

The party chieftains expressed conviction that a post mortem exercise was necessary to build APC in Delta State into an election winning machine ahead of 2027.
