A former National Publicity Secretary of the defunct New Peoples Democratic Party (nPDP), Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, has said he and others who built the All Progressives Congress (APC) will not fold their hands and allow the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike destroy the party….CONTINUE READING HERE
