A fraction of All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) led by Edozie Njoku, has dissolved the State Working Committee of the party in ten States, including Kwara, Kogi, Lagos, Oyo, Delta, Anambra, Imo, Enugu, Abia and Ebonyi.
Briefing journalists yesterday in Abuja, the National Administrative Secretary of the party, Okoro Chinedum Benedict, said this is part of the conciliatory efforts of the party led by Njoku, adding that the decision was arrived at after the National Working Committee (NWC) meeting of the party stakeholders.
A communiqué he read after the meeting said the NWC passed a vote of confidence on the National Chairman, Chief Edozie Njoku, especially his conciliatory leadership style.
The APGA factional NWC also called on INEC to expeditiously recognize the Executives that emerged from the Owerri Convention of May 31, 2019, which produced Chief Edozie Njoku as APGA National Chairman.
“Flowing from the Supreme Court and Federal High Court judgments, the NWC met and deliberated on a wide range of issues, particularly the recent judicial pronouncements on the party, and resolved as follows;
“That for the need for peace and genuine reconciliation, the party Executives of the following states stand dissolved; – Kwara, Kogi, Lagos, Oyo, Delta, Anambra, Imo, Enugu, Abia and Ebonyi.
“That an adhoc Committee is hereby set up to formulate strategies to ensure that APGA sweeps the 2023 General Elections across the federation.
“That all APGA members are hereby enjoined to seize the opportunity of the ongoing INEC Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) exercise to register and get their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs)”, the communiqué signed by: Alhaji Adamu Danjuma Musa (Deputy National Chairman North), Hon. Freedom Okwuchukwu (Deputy National Chairman South), Muyideen Imam (National Secretary), among others said.
