Women leader wants APC NWC to restore sanity in party’s Benue chapter

MS NANCY TORHER, BENUE APC WOMEN LEADER BRIEFING NEWSMEN AT THE PARTY’S NATIONAL SECRETARIAT ON WEDNESDAY JUNE, 26, 2024 IN ABUJA
Ms Nancy Torher, Benue All Progressives Congress (APC) Women Leader has appealed to the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) to help restore sanity in the chapter.
She made the appeal on Wednesday in Abuja when she led the 23 Local Government and Zonal women leaders in Benue on a protest to the party’s national secretariat.
Torher while speaking with newsmen after submitting a petition to the party’s national leadership, said there was a need for it to address issues of imposters in the state.
This, she said was especially as some suspended officials of the party in Benue, were still parading themselves as officials.
She said it was unfortunate that some of the party’s national executives were associating with such imposters in spite of their suspension from the party.
She particularly accused the APC National Women Leader, Dr Mary Idele of associating with an imposter who parades herself as Benue APC women leader.
This, Torher said, was a violation of the decision of the party”s NWC which suspended the Austin Agada-led Benue APC executive.
“The APC national women leader, as a member of its NWC, is aware of this decision and suspension and she is expected to adhere to it,” she said.
According to her, notice of contrary decision not recognisng her as Benue APC woman leader has not been given to her.
She said it was therefore shocking to see the party’s national woman leader violating the NWC’s decision by inviting an imposter to an event as Benue APC Woman Leader.
She added that Idele had also been recognising one Benjamin Omakolo as the state”s chairman.
“Allowing this breach of order to proceed will further deepen the APC’s  intr -party crisis in Benue and could lead to the collapse of the party’s structure,”Torher said.
She said it was therefore critical for the party’s leadership to intervene in the matter by drawing the attention of Idele to the abnormality and ensuring she aligned with the its decision.(NAN)
