A conglomeration of about 25 political parties under the aegis of Inter-Party Advisory Council (IPAC) has ratified the election of the National Chairman of Progressive Peoples Alliance (PPA), Chief Peter Ameh, as its National Chairman.
This is expected to put to rest, the crisis surrounding the ascension of Mallam Bashir Yusuf Ibrahim to office in controversial circumstances after the election held on July 24, 2015.
A terse statement issued in Abuja on Thursday by the Secretary-General of IPAC, Godson Okoye, said Ameh remained the chairman of IPAC.
Okoye said: “The Inter-Party Advisory Council (IPAC) hereby notify the public that the duly elected and lawful National Chairman of IPAC is Chief Peter Ameh.
“We do hereby make the following clarifications:
*Mallam Bashir Yusuf Ibrahim was wrongfully declared winner in the fundamentally flawed and consequently annulled IPAC election of 24/7/15.
*On 17/8/15, the General Body of IPAC upon reviewing the report of the Appeal Committee annulled the election of 24/7/15 and fixed IPAC chairmanship rerun election for 25/8/15.
*At the rerun election of 25/8/15, Chief Peter Ameh was overwhelming elected as National Chairman of IPAC, sworn in, inaugurated with other executives and handed over to.
“We are aware of the nefarious activities of misrepresentation being carried out by Mallam Bashir Yusuf Ibrahim.
“IPAC frowns upon the use of the media to propagate false information and call on Mallam Bashir Yusuf Ibrahim to desist from his impersonation and misrepresentation.
“We believe the general public will now be better informed on the undisputed fact that Chief Peter Ameh is the National Chairman of IPAC.
