This is because his effort to seek presidential intervention in cancellation of the outcome of last Saturday's Ward Congress of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state has hit a brick wall.

The office in tatters after the invasion The team identified as Ward and Local Government Congresses Committee from Abuja headquarters of the party, headed by Joseph Dogo, stressed that the congresses took place on Saturday in Rivers, in conflict with the position of 2019 Rivers APC governorship aspirant, Sen Magnus Abe who maintains that no congress held anywhere in the state.

Governor Abiola Ajimobi in response to the outcome of the ward congress said efforts are on to bring together the splintered group in order to enhance peace and progress of the party.

He commended the party faithful in the state for exhibiting brotherhood and compromise during the exercise.

Mr Mustafa participated in the exercise in his Ward at Gwadabawa in Jimeta area of Yola. And it showed that they never wanted the congress to be successful abinition, he said.

Rilwanu who did not make further comment, however, called on all party members to exercise patience, assuring that the congress would hold.

Apart from the fracas that marred the exercise, there were also allegations of hijacking of electoral materials in most APC states with over a dozen people reportedly killed and scores with various degrees of injuries. He therefore appealed to all disgruntled members to join hands in ensuring that the APC provides better and quality governance to the people of Lagos and Nigerians in general.The party's spokesman also described Oki as a bad loser, who was trying to shift the goal post after realizing he lost and may not likely return as the party's vice chairman representing Lagos central.

According to him, "The outing that was supposed to deliver a bouncing Party Baby at the Ward Congress occasion, has resulted in Electroblastosis-Featalis; a Stillborn for the party".

He, however, congratulated all members of the party, saying that the conduct of the congress was generally peaceful.
