Rivers state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) had its leaders recommended former Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Barrister Worgu Boms, to fill the vacant post of the Deputy National Secretary of the party.
He is to replace Hon. Victor Giadom, who resigned in 2018 to contest the 2019 governorship election as a running mate.
The National Vice Chairman South South, Hon. Hillard Eta, disclosed this to newsmen in Abuja on Saturday at the National Secretariat of the party in Abuja.
“You are aware that on Friday, a competent court of jurisdiction declared Chief Victor Giadom as not being a member of the National Working Committee (NWC) and should never parade himself as such.
“Even before then, there was a resolution by the NWC asking the South South zone of the party which I head to transmit a name for his replacement or filling of the vacancy made possible by his resignation to contest as Deputy Governorship Candidate of our party in Rivers state.
“I want to announce to the world that I am in receipt of the name of a distinguished member of this party from Rivers state to the Zone for ratification in the person of Worgu Boms Esq, a former Attorney General of Rivers state.”Eta said.
