The Caretaker Committee Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Governor Mai Mala Buni has dissolved the party’s Executive Committee in Ebonyi State, barely a week after the State Governor, David Umahi, confirmed his controversial exit from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to the APC.

This was made known in a statement signed by the Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena, in Abuja on Wednesday.

According to the statement, a 15 member caretaker executive has been set up as a replacement.

The 15-member caretaker committee will be chaired by Stanley Okoro and deputized by John Nwankata (North), Peter Ndubuisi (Central), and Ozoemena Njoku (South) while Charles Ofoke is to serve as secretary.

The Mala Buni-led interim management of the APC headquarters said its decision to dissolve the Ebonyi State executive committee was necessitated by the latter’s refusal to withdraw court cases as directed by the 8th resumed meeting of the APC National Executive Committee, NEC, and submit to internal party resolution mechanisms.
