Adams Oshiomhole, National party chairman of the ruling party, APC, says the party is not in alignment with African Action Congress, AAC, in Rivers state.

Recall the minister of transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, said the APC will throw its weight behind Awara Biokpomabo, governorship candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC) in the state.

“This morning, the leadership of the party met and agreed that we would work with a party called African Action Congress (AAC), while we are still in court to reclaim our mandate,” he had said.

Oshiomhole, however, denied such alignment and said it has never been discussed with him.

“I have never spoken at any forum that we have aligned with any party. There is only one party (I oversee) and that is APC, if there is going to be alignment, I will know.

“I can’t choose to be in the know. That has never been discussed with me or with any of the members of the national working committee,” the APC chairman said.
