APGA leadership tussle resurfaces

The leadership crisis in the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA has again resurfaced with a claimant to the post of the National Chairmanship of the party, Mr. Edoziem Njoku presenting to the public, a letter purportedly written by a retired justice Mary Odili affirming his position.

Mr. Edozie Njoku, who had been a factional national chairman of the party at a news conference in Abuja, emphasized that the letter purportedly written by the retired Justice of the Supreme Court, Mary Odili on the APGA leadership crisis should not be swept aside.

He called on the Independent National Electoral Commission, to recognize him as the authentic national chairman of the party and appealed to Governor Charles Soludo of Anambra State and other members of the party to intervene and unite the party ahead of the 2023 general election.

But in a reaction, APGA Media Warriors Forum has said that Mr. Edozie Njoku is not the party’s national chairman and can never become the party’s leader through the backdoor.

The National Coordinator of the  Forum, Mr. Chinedu Obigwe, in a statement insisted that Dr. Victor Oye remains the party’s national chairman.

Mr. Obigwe challenged Mr. Njoku to summon a meeting of APGA-elected officials to test his popularity as the “self-acclaimed” chairman.

Mr. Obigwe commended Dr. Victor Oye for working tirelessly to ensure the success of the party in the forthcoming general election.
