Chieftains and top members of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) have embarked on an emergency trip to London.

Led by it’s party chairman, John Oyegun, the top members of the party are said to have left Nigeria for London late last night, Saturday the 22nd of July.

Other members that accompanied the party chairman include but are not limited to Rotimi Amaechi, Minister of Transport and Rochas Okorocha, Governor of Imo State.

During the thanksgiving ceremony of Nsima Ekere, the Managaing Director of Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), he revealed that he was deeply saddened by the fact his close friends called him the night prior to reveal they wouldn’t be able to attend the ceremony due to an emergency meeting in London. He said: “Today I am overjoyed but believe me just last night I doubted I would be happy today because my very good friends called me thrice in a row, Rotimi Amaechi, Rochas Okorocha and the Chairman of my great party, John Oyegun, to reveal to me they had to make an emergency meeting in London and were made to leave immediately.

As a matter of fact, Rotimi Amaechi had cut short his trip to America just to attend my thanksgiving but as soon as he got in from London last night, he immediately had to return due to this meeting. So everyone I want you to join me in praying for London city”.
