Bayelsa Government Orders APC To Vacate Secretariat
The crisis rocking the Bayelsa State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) is still far from being over.
The state government has asked the party to vacate its secretariat located along Melford Okilo Expressway, Kpansia, Yenaoga.
The order to vacate the secretariat came barely a few days after the National Executive Committee of the APC expelled the Bayelsa State Chairman of the party, Tiwei Orunimighe; his deputy, Eddy Julius and the Secretary, Marlin Daniel, from the party.
Before the expulsion, the state chapter of the APC had been enmeshed in a lingering crisis between factions loyal to the party leader and a former governor of the state, Chief Timipre Sylva and those of Orunimighe.
Speaking at a news conference in Yenagoa, the Bayelsa State capital on Friday, the Solicitor-General of the state and Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Justice, Preye Ageda, said the state government acquired the said property (secretariat) in 2010 from one Ipigansi Izagora.
