The Mai Mala Buni-led Caretaker/ Extra-Ordinary National Convention Planning Committeea also announced the setting up of a 15 member caretaker executive to replace former eccos.

According to the statement: “The All Progressives Congress Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee has dissolved the Party’s Ebonyi State Working Committee following refusal of factions to withdraw court cases as directed by the 8th resumed meeting of the APC National Executive Committee and submit to internal party resolution mechanisms initiated by the CECPC.
“A 15-member caretaker committee has subsequently been appointed by the APC CECPC to manage the Party’s affairs and carry out the planned membership registration, update, and revalidation exercise in Ebonyi State.”
APC appointed Stanley Okoro as the new Chairman. Other members are John Nwankata – Vice Chairman (North), Peter Nworie Ndubuisi – Vice Chairman (Central), Ozoemena Njoku – Vice Chairman (South) and Charles Ofoke as Secretary
