Despite the crisis currently rocking the National Working Committee of the All Progressives Grand Alliance APGA, the Abia State chapter of the party seemed to be poised to reposition the party in the state.
Today, during a Press Conference attended by the 17 Local Government Chapter Chairmen of the party in the state, a new State executive was unveiled with the Former two time Chairman of Arochukwu LGA as the New “authentic” state Chairman, while Obingwa born veteran Journalist, Ebere Uzoukwa was elected Publicity Secretary.
The chairman, reading from the text of the press conference affirmed the unalloyed loyalty of the new executive to the Dr. Alex Chioma Otti, the Governorship candidate of the party in the 2019 general elections, who they recognized as the leader of the party in the state.
Hon. Nkem Okoro blasted the former Chairman “Rev” Augustine Ehiemere and his cronies for allegedly allowing themselves to be bought over by Abia state Government, yielding themselves to be used as tools to destabilize the party and vowed that his new administration will work closely with Dr. Alex Otti to reclaim his mandate in Court.
Recall that Dr. Alex Otti had approached the Election Petition Tribunal challenging the declaration of Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu as the winner of Abia Governorship election conducted few months ago.
