The Maxi Okwu led interim national leadership and chairmen of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in the 36 states, have declared that they are not a party to the alleged merger between major opposition parties in Nigeria saying they’ll not be bound by whatever agreement entered on the party’s behalf.
Plateau State chapter chairman of APGA; Dr. Isah Arzyka Jega, who read the communique at the end of the meeting of the state chairmen in Abuja, said the party did not consult or participate in any discussion about merger or alliance with any political party in Nigeria.
The caucus also challenged the national leadership of the party to immediately work towards fixing a date for new membership registration drive and to review the membership register of the party with a view to holding a congress, which will herald the national convention of the party which it suggested should be held in Enugu.
They also resolved to unconditionally admit all former members who expressed genuine desires to return to the party, adding that all those who were previously sanctioned by the party are pardoned to allow for rebuilding the party.
While commending the policy thrust of the Maxi Okwu’s led interim National Working Committee of the party, the caucus also said his idea of rapprochement, reconciliation, and re-integration could not have come at a better time than now.
Speaking earlier Maxi Okwu, urged Chief Victor Umeh, to join the train in rebuilding the party, saying the party has no other choice than to forget the past and move forward.
