Southeast APC mulls reconcilation, rallies for Buhari today
While one committee is charged with the responsibility of addressing the crisis in Imo State chapter of the party, the other would undertake similar assignment for the entire zone.
According to Governor Rochas Okorocha, who made the disclosure while addressing a cross section of his supporters that thronged the Government House, Owerri, the peace effort was required to prepare the party to face its challenges and achieve success in forth coming elections.
He said Senator Omezue Azu Agboti would chair the APC Peace and Reconciliation Committee, Prince MacDonald Akano heads the committee charged with reconciling warring factions in Imo State.
Okorocha also disclosed that a “mega victory rally,” intended to drum support for President Buhari, holds today.
The governor said: “This very rally will have so many governors in attendance with Secretary to the Government of the Federation as a representative of the President.
The idea is to promote the ideals of what President Buhari stands for, and to also ensure that Igbos are not left out again, and to rebuild all broken bridges with both the North and Western part of this Country and position Ndi-Igbo better.
“I want to equally ensure that the new party leadership will look into the aborted Congresses in the State and I can assure you that there will be fresh Congresses as soon as possible. That will now stabilize our Party and get them ready for elections.
And I want to thank Imolites, who have remained calm in the face of provocations and insults. The Victory is for all of us.”
Okorocha hinted that the July 14 council poll would still go on and urged eligible voters to endeavour to participate, adding, “The Local Government elections will still go on as scheduled and I hope everyone will participate and the exercise will be free and fair.
The issue of the Coalition has come to an end. The people had spoken and God has heard them. We are back from the national convention with victory.
“What is important now is that we must make all efforts to make the Party move forward both in the South-East and in Imo in particular. This is not the time to point who is your political enemy or not.
The party will no longer condone any act of indiscipline, stealing of result sheets and carrying of ballot boxes. APC is not known for that.”
