APC inaugurates Cross River exco, sues for peace
The All Progressives Congress (APC) has inaugurated its executive committee in Cross River State, after months of crises.
Chairman of the chapter, Dr. Matthew Achigbe, who anchored the inauguration, said “the legal authority to discharge their duties and responsibilities has not only been unduly protracted but has become most urgent.”
He also inaugurated executives of the zones.
Charging the new officers to work for the general interest of members and the party to ensure victory in 2019 elections, he appealed to aggrieved members to bury the hatchet.
“Though with total obedience and respect for the fundamental rights and freedom of self-determination, I wish to appeal to all aggrieved progressives to let go the vicious circle of political hostilities and disagreements that has pitted us against one another in horrible act of hatred.
“This will not only help us to heal the psychological wounds we have inflicted on ourselves, but come as a strong and united front in our battle to take over the reins of power through the ballot in the forthcoming elections,” he appealed.
According to him, the party leadership is committed to ensuring reconciliation in the party.
His words: “Unfortunately, time has become our greatest enemy. In the next couple of days, we need to attempt genuine reconciliation, commence our primaries and registration of new members and present our candidates to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), etc. Except we move with exceptional pace, we might not be able to cover lost grounds.”
