The leadership of the Pastor Reuben Initiative for Good Leadership and Accountability yesterday 28th July, held an all inclusive advisory council meeting which lasted for not less than three hours (3hrs) in a bid to reorganize and reposition the Initiative’s hierarchical leadership for a more efficient service delivery following the sudden defection of its Advisory Council Chairman Chief Dr. Stephen Ogullah to the PDP.
The highpoint of the meeting was the appraisal of successes so far made by the Initiative’s unrelenting efforts at mobilizing it’s supporters across the 8 Local Government Areas of the State to get registered with INEC so as not to be disenfranchised in the forth coming general elections in the state going forward, by enabling those without PVC’s to get theirs and a possible revalidation of PVCs registered during 2011 -2015
After an exhaustive deliberations, Council eulogizes the former Chairman of the Advisory Council Dr. Stephen Ogullah who defected to the PDP and thanked him for his contributions to the Initiative and wished him far well in his future endeavors as he joined the PDP.
Without any coloration, the founder said, the party APC and the Initiative held Ogullah in high esteem and gave him all the honour that due him yet he left for the PDP. Pastor Reuben however, insists that the doors of the party are still opened for him to return. That if he realizes his mistake and returns, the party will be glad to receive him
