Few days after Governor Okorocha said he would support his son in-law, Uche Nwosu, to achieve his governorship ambition in any political party of his choice, and that he could not stop the aggrieved members of the party from defecting to any party of their choice, the Southeast Reconciliation and Peace Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has visited in Owerri.
The committee which was set up by the National Working Committee (NWC) of the APC led by the Kano State Governor, His Excellency Alhaji Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, arrived Owerri on Thursday and met with the Governor at the Imo International Convention Center (IICC), Owerri, alongside party leaders, aspirants and some candidates of the party.
Governor Okorocha who received the members of the committee recounted how the APC was formed in the state. He reassured that he will not leave the party, adding that he is committed to the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The Chairman of the Reconciliation Committee, Alhaji Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, Governor of kano State, expressed satisfaction with the Governor’s assurance that he would remain in the APC, promising that his committee would do everything within its powers to ensure that peace returned to the party in the state.
Speaking at the meeting, the State Chairman of the APC, Daniel Madueke Nwafor, thanked the committee for visiting in Imo State, saying that peace and reconciliation would not be far from the party if justice was served.
“APC members in Imo State are loyal to the Constitution of our great Party and shall continue to promote its guiding principles. We ask for justice as a guarantee for peace. The only justice in this case is to adopt the results of the 6th October Primaries of the Party”, he said.
