Dr Abdullahi Ganduje, the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has appealed for patience for the national leadership to reconcile the warring factions of the party in Rivers State.
Ganduje said this when he received APC stakeholders from Rivers on Thursday in Abuja.
The former Kano governor noted that the party in the State was being killed by litigation.
He said that Rivers was a very important state in the country because of its oil deposit and large population, describing it as an asset for election to any political party.
“So you can see why we cannot rubbish the state; Rivers as a state in politics is very important. Coincidentally, some of us are conversant with the politics in Rivers,” he said.
He said that the current crisis in the Rivers chapter of the party started in 2015.
