Part of his responsibilities is to mobilize other leaders in the Zone to ensure a hitch free membership registration exercise, congresses and national convention.

In a letter to the Governor signed by the Chairman National Caretaker/Extraordinary Conversation Planning Committee and Yobe State Governor, Alhaji Mal Mala Buni, Uzodinma will also oversee the reconciliation of disputing and aggrieved members in the Zone.

“I write to mandate Your Excellency to lead the south east caucus, stakeholders and other opinion leaders towards achieving the objectives”, the letter read.

Prior to the appointment of Uzodinma to this role, the Governor had spearheaded the reconciliation of APC members both in the state and the entire south east.

 Apart from providing a platform for leaders of the Zone to exchange ideas on how to expand the influence of the party in igboland, Uzodinma has hosted them from time to time.

Before the defection of Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi, from PDP to APC, Uzodinma was the only elected Governor of the Party in the Southeast.
