APC to intervene in assembly crisis

Worried about the internal crisis in the only APC governed state in the South East geo- political zone, the new leadership of the APC is planning to summon the member representing Oguta state constituency in the House of Assembly over his involvement in the crisis.


A source at the party’s headquarters said  the new executives had expressed concern over the crisis and would soon invite the lawmaker over the endorsement of the chief of staff and son in law to the governor, Hon. Uche Nwosu, which led to factionalization of the party. The new exco, according to the source, aims to resolve the warring factions ahead of the 2019 elections and the lawmaker is expected to explain to the party hierarchy what made him and his colleagues to believe that Nwosu is an acceptable candidate that would help the APC retain the state in 2019.

 Crisis began in Imo APC when Hon. Uzoma Ezediaro representing Oguta state constituency in the state Assembly and his colleagues endorsed Uche Nwosu as the party’s preferred gubernatorial candidate for next year’s election which was opposed by the stakeholders led by the deputy governor, Prince Madumere. Delegates at the just concluded party’s national convention in Abuja had engaged in a fight over which faction controls the party structure in the state.
