The All Progressive Congress (APC) National Working Committee (NWC) has designated the party’s Rivers State chapter as a five-member executive caretaker committee.
Isaac Ogbobula, the party’s spokesman, Lanre Issa-Onilu, said, will chair the caretaker committee to supervise the party’s affairs in the state.
Others are Friday Owhor, Beatrice Amobi, Abolo Stephen and Baridon Badom (Secretary), according to Mr Issa-Onilu.
Mr Issa-Onilu also set the schedule for the election of new APC rulers in Rivers.
Since the build-up to the 2019 election, the Rivers APC has been in crisis.
The state party divided into two groups: one loyal to former Governor Rotimi Amaechi and the other loyal to former senator Magnus Abe.
The internal struggle among APC members led the party to lose out in the elections to the Rivers as the Supreme Court disqualified it from the election campaigning candidates.
New APC leaders are to now to be elected for wards, local governments and the state leadership in Rivers
