The State Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Rivers State Chapter, Chief (Dr.) Davies Ibiamu Ikanya [JP] has emerged as Chairman of the Inter-Party Advisory Council [IPAC] in Rivers State.

Chief Ikanya emerged as Chairman of the Rivers State chapter of the umbrella body of all registered political parties in Nigeria in a keenly-contested election that took place at the Independent National Electoral Commission [INEC] headquarters in Port Harcourt last Friday.

While declaring Chief Ikanya and other elected officers winners, the electoral committee chairman, Hon. Agbo Major who is the National Secretary of the NNPP, charged the newly-elected IPAC Exco in Rivers State to create an enabling environment for a smooth and cordial relationship among political parties in the state and, by extension, across the nation.

In an interview immediately after being sworn in, Chief Ikanya promised that his leadership of the body will strive to serve the interests of the various political parties, Rivers State and Nigeria at all times.

“I promise that the APC as the ruling party in Rivers State will always carry everybody along,” Chief Ikanya declared.

The Chairman promised that IPAC in Rivers State will work with INEC and all relevant organs to ensure peaceful, credible, free and fair elections in Rivers State come 2015.

Also elected were Hon. Echezolam Nweke of the ACD as Deputy Chairman; Ibiba Walter of the PDP as Secretary; Hon. Precious Baridoo of the Accord Party as Deputy Secretary; Mrs Tepikor Anastesia of NCP was elected as Treasurer; Gift Macheyinda was elected as the Financial Secretary while Engr.
