• Passes Vote Of Confidence On Njoku

A faction of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) led by Edozie Njoku has emphasised the need for quality leadership in the country. It has also dissolved the party’s working committees in Kwara, Kogi, Lagos, Oyo, Delta, Anambra, Imo, Enugu, Abia and Ebonyi states.

Its National Working Committee (NWC) also called on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to expeditiously recognise the executives that emerged from the Owerri convention on May 31, 2019, which produced Chief Edozie Njoku as its national chairman.

The National Administrative Secretary, Okoro Benedict, disclosed this in Abuja, during the party’s NWC meeting. The party also passed a vote of confidence on Njoku, especially for his conciliatory leadership style.

A communiqué read by Benedict stated: “Flowing from the Supreme Court and Federal High Court judgments, the NWC met and deliberated on a wide range of issues, particularly the recent judicial pronouncements on the party, and resolved as follows:

“For peace and genuine reconciliation, the party executives of the following states stand dissolved- Kwara, Kogi, Lagos, Oyo, Delta, Anambra, Imo, Enugu, Abia and Ebonyi.

“That an adhoc committee is, hereby, set up to formulate strategies to ensure that APGA sweeps the 2023 general elections across the federation.

“APGA members are enjoined to seize the opportunity of the ongoing INEC Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) exercise to register and get their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs).”

The communiqué was signed by: Deputy National Chairman (North), Alhaji Adamu Danjuma Musa; Deputy National Chairman (South), Freedom Okwuchukwu; National Secretary, Muyideen Imam; National Legal Adviser, Hamman Buba Ghide; National Welfare Officer, Alhaji Mustapha Rabiu; National Vice Chairman South East, Tony Uche Ezekwelu.

Others were: National Vice Chairman Southwest, Camaru Lateef Ogidan; National Vice Chairman, South-South, Chief Jonathan Osigho; National Vice Chairman, North Central, Leonard Auta; and National Youth Leader, Chuks Nwoga.
