A statement issued yesterday by the Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the party, Yekini Nabena, said a 15-member caretaker committee has subsequently been appointed by the APC CECPC to manage the party’s affairs and carry out the planned membership registration, update, and revalidation exercise in Ebonyi State.

Others are Engr. Ogbonnaya Igboke, Organising Secretary, Chidi Ogbuatu, Publicity Secretary, Barr. Ikaa, Ikaa Ukeni, Legal Adviser, Chief Paulinus Ali (Zomo) – Treasurer, Chief Joseph Ozibo, Financial Secretary.
Also appointed are: Ogochukwu David Elem, Youth Leader, Odo Oluchi Juliet, Women Leader, Ogbonna David Nshii, Auditor, Adum Uchenna Basil, Physically Challenged and Francis Obike Nweze, Welfare Secretary.
The statement urged the party faithful to support and cooperate with the new interim leadership to move that party forward in both the state and at the national level.
“As the Governor Mai Mala Buni-led APC CECPC repositions our great party, we urge our supporters, members and leaders in Ebonyi state and other chapters to support and work towards the achievement of the peace and reconciliation mandate of the CECPC”, the statement said.
