Appointments: Rivers APC Youths protest Tinubu’s alleged marginalisation


On Monday, Rivers State members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) protested in Port Harcourt, demanding that President Bola Tinubu stop allegedly marginalising the party’s state branch.

The protest was held under the aegis of the Concerned Youths of Rivers APC at the premises of the party’s secretariat on Woji Road, New GRA.

In a press conference, protesters urged President Tinubu to reconsider the appointment of former Governor Nyesom Wike as Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

Additionally, they asked the President to revisit the appointment of a former Commissioner in Rivers State, Boma Iyaye, as the Executive Director, Finance and Administration in the Niger Delta Development Commission.

Both politicians are members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

They said it is unfair for non-party members to be given such political appointments at the detriment of the APC in the state.
