National Working Committee of the All Progressive Grand Alliance, APGA, says the moves to reconcile Governor Peter Obi of Anambra State and APGA’s National Chairman, Chief Victor Umeh, does not enjoy its support.
In a statement by APGA’s National Publicity Secretary, Benard Akoma, the NWC expressed worry over what it described as the refusal by Obi and Umeh to involve them in the truce bid..
The committee said failure to address the internal problems that has plagued the party will prolong the crisis in APGA.
The NWC said: “We the eighteen members of the National Working Committee of the All Progressive Grand Alliance, APGA, have noticed with dismay recent purported reconciliation romance on APGA crisis between the Executive Governor of Anambra State and the embattled National Chairman of our party, Victor Umeh, filtering into our ears. Though none of them has made any effort to get us involved in their moves, we wish to state unequivocally that the move does not enjoy our support and both parties are on their own.”
The committee noted that APGA’s challenges had gone beyond a “chummy relationship between Obi and his brother Umeh to addressing the pertinent issue that borders on the very survival of the party.”
