“There are constitutional provisions in our party constitution to summon an extra-ordinary meeting of the state executive committee of our party the APC.
Hon Igo Aguma called a meeting of the SEC by virtue of an order of court which was published. Every member was invited. I attended that meeting, a quorum was formed and decisions were reached.
So, SEC met and took certain decisions including asking the acting Chairman to draw a blueprint on the way forward and present to SEC at a later date.
The proper procedure for Senator Andrew Uchendu would have been to collect the signature of SEC members and serve a notice on the chairman with a demand to summon a meeting.
Senator Uchendu cannot call a sectional meeting in his house to which other members were not invited and usurp the powers of the state executive committee, to set up a factional executive outside SEC.
This action at the time it was done was a clear breach of a valid court judgement, even if the judgement is set aside the action as at the day it took place was in defiance of a subsisting judgement and cannot be repaired.
As far as the law is concerned, the state executive committee of the APC can only meet if summoned by the chairman or a proper procedure is used by members to override the chairman.
We should follow the example of the President and obey our courts.
I shall be paying a courtesy call on the state chairman when I come to PortHarcourt”.
