The Rivers State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has suspended the planned ward, local government and state congresses.

This was made known by the Chairman of the APC Caretaker Committee in Rivers State, Isaac Ogbobula.

The National Leadership of the APC had scheduled fresh congresses for September 17 to 28.

It also inaugurated the Ogbobula-led five-member caretaker committee.

However, a governorship aspirant and former lawmaker, Senator Magnus Abe, obtained a court order stopping the congresses and declaring the caretaker committee illegal.

Speaking on the latest development, Ogbobula disclosed that the congresses were suspended by the National Working Committee (NWC) of the APC following the legal dispute.

He, however, assured party faithful that other party activities would continue unhindered.
