The feuding leaders of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, Governor Peter Obi of Anambra State and the party’s National Chairman, Chief Victor Umeh, yesterday met and resolved crisis tearing the party apart.
Speaking after the closed-door meeting at the Government House, Awka, Obi said the crisis which they had fully resolved would never come up again. He said: “The crisis would never come up again. Anambra State is an APGA state and it would remain so, we will defend it with everything, we would go out with everything during the coming election and win.”
The governor assured party faithful that the end of the crisis signalled greater things and victories for APGA, adding that they would reconcile everybody and make sure that all were brought back on track.
While addressing journalists and other dignitaries, the national chairman of the party said: “I have come to crystallise the various meetings we have had in the recent time and to declare to the whole world that the APGA crisis has come to an end.” Describing the resolution of the crisis as a new dawn, Umeh said APGA was an indivisible party which would remain very strong and united.
The APGA national chairman, who commended Obi for his developmental programmes, said he would continue to work harmoniously with the governor to reposition the party.
He said: “Like brothers, we would continue to resolve all outstanding differences, I am sure that (the late Chief Chukwuemeka) Ojukwu will be very happy today, he is in heaven, and I know that what he had left in our hands will remain safe and strong, we have conquered the devil.”
