Ahead of the forthcoming national convention of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, a group, South East Progressives Assembly, has started mobilizing support for the candidacy of Chief Emeka Diwe as the national chairman of the party.
Addressing journalists in Aba, President and Secretary of the group, Ebere Uzoukwa and Munonye Maximus, said the position of the national party chairman of APGA, which is expected to be zoned to Imo State, must be occupied by a credible, mature, peace loving and level headed personality as represented by Diwe.
The group, which lamented the crisis that had bedevilled APGA in the past two years, insisted that APGA needed a tested administrator, who would reposition and unite the different contending interests in the party.
“APGA remains the political identity of Ndigbo. Every Igbo man is attached to APGA, so we are worried about the state of affairs in APGA. The party needs to elect an experienced hand to reposition and unite its many contending interests.
‘’SEPA testifies of Chief Emeka Diwe’s acumen as a good manager of men. He is a tested administrator, who will be an asset to APGA if elected to the position of national chairman.”
