National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, has revealed a fresh plot to kick out Governor Sim Fubara of Rivers State in the next election.

Ganduje said the National Working Committee (NWC) is repositioning the Rivers State chapter of the party to win the 2027 governorship election in the state.

Politics Nigeria reports that Rivers State is currently under the control of the opposition PDP.

The governor, Fubara, recently parted ways with his political godfather, Nyesom Wike, who currently serves as the FCT minister under the APC-led federal government.

Speaking during the inauguration of the state caretaker committee at the APC national secretariat on Friday in Abuja, Ganduje lamented that since 2015, APC had been suffering some setbacks in the state due to intra-party dispute and litigations.

Recall that the NWC had on Wednesday dissolved the Rivers executives at all levels and constituted a 7-member caretaker committee consisting of loyalists of a former governor of the state and current minister of the FCT, Nyesom Wike, led by Tony Okocha.

Ganduje said: “We have decided to reform the party. This won’t be possible without the leadership in the states.

“We want you to make history for our party so that during the next election, we will have Rivers State for APC.

“You contributed in electing the government of today (president). I can beat my chest; we are proud of you,” the APC national declared.
