Amid the continued disintegration of the All Progressives Congress, officials of the newly-formed rAPC have dismissed the threat of a court action by some functionaries of the APC as both ‘laughable and idiotic’.
This was the take of the Deputy National Chairman (South) of the rAPC, Chief Sam Nkire who said the nPDP and the rAPC were more or less one and the same thing since rAPC is an amalgamation of the nPDP and other aggrieved members of the APC.
Nkire, who reacted on Monday to the threats of using the police and the courts to arrest and jail members of the rAPC by the APC, wondered why the APC found it lawful to accept the nPDP in its fold for four years only to reject the rAPC.
He appealed to all aggrieved members of the ruling APC in the country to embrace the Reformed All Progressives Congress in order to better the country and have their problems solved by an impartial and a reformed body.
Chief Nkire said that the party would soon begin to hold discussion with members, especially those from the South-Eastern part of Nigeria who had been short-changed, particularly during the recent National Convention.
He added that the meetings would be held on a zone-to-zone basis, beginning with Lagos for South-west; Enugu for South-east and Port-Harcourt for South-south, with the aim of charting a new course.
