In a bid to end the lingering crises in the leadership tussle of Ebonyi State Chapter of Inter Party  Advisory Council, IPAC, following the deregistration  of some political parties by Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, the Special Assistant to the state Governor on Inter Party Affairs and Labour Matters, Comrade Mrs. Jennifer Adibe-Nwafor  has called on all members of IPAC to be United.

 Comrade Mrs. Adibe-Nwafor stated this while addressing Journalists on resolutions of the meeting she had with IPAC members in Abakaliki, the State capital.

She said. "there are no two IPAC in Ebonyi State and Mr. Nchita Samuel Akahite is the only recognized Interim Chairman of IPAC in the state who   was rightfully inaugurated by the National Executive Council of IPAC on 29th of July, 2020, pending when the National body will conduct their own elections and thereafter conduct that  of the states"

"Ebonyi State will be working with the 18 political parties that exist in the registers of INEC".

The Special Assistant appealed to IPAC to accommodate all deregistered political parties that went to Court in the spirit of oneness.

She advised those whose political parties were deregistered to join other political parties which have started emerging ahead of 2023 general elections.

"Those parties who won at appeal Court but currently waiting for the Supreme Court's verdict should exercise little patience for the Apex Court to give final judgement.

"Doing otherwise shall be viewed as deliberate efforts to undermine the constituted authorities and breach of fragile peace in the state and such person shall be meant to face the full weight of law", she warned.

She also warned that no meeting of any kind in the name of IPAC should be held outside IPAC Secretariat in view of the present security challenges in the state.

Also, the State Secretary of People's Democratic Party, PDP, Chief  Simon  Anyigor also appealed to the members of the deregistered political parties to remain calm and peaceful until Court determines their fate.

On his part, the IPAC interim Chairman, Mr. Nchita Samuel Akahite thanked the Special Assistant for her efforts to ensure peaceful coexistence in the Council.

Mr. Nchita promised to abide by the resolutions of the meeting.

Meanwhile the former IPAC Chairman, in the state before his party was deregistered, Comrade Morgan Nwogba Nnaemeka who is still parading himself as the authentic one was not in the meeting.
