National Publicity Secretary of the party, Chief Olisa Metuh, disclosed this while briefing journalists at the end of the meeting.

He said, “In order to maintain discipline and to show the supremacy of the party and in furtherance of running a lawful, orderly and responsible state organs of our party, the NWC has decided to dissolve the state executive committees of Adamawa and Ebonyi States for grave and inimical conduct and act capable of disorganising and undermining good conduct of the party in the states.

“We urge members in those states to disregard the publications of the result of the Ward congresses made by those two state executives.

“Our members should disregard them as not being authorised and not coming from a proper custody. ”

Meanwhile, eleven governorship aspirants of the party from Imo State have kicked against the November 1, 2014 ward congresses in the state.
