In a letter addressed to President Jonathan and signed by Chief Maxi Okwu, the party which noted that its delegates were withdrawn from the confab on ground that the party was still in factions, said the crisis has been resolved.
“Sir, the leadership issue in the party has been resolved by both the Federal High Court Abuja and the Court of Appeal Abuja Division. While the Federal High Court presided by Justice Abdulkadir Abdu-Kafarati upheld Chief Maxi Okwu as the authentic national chairman of the party on 15th January 2014, the court also dismissed Chief Umeh’s application for a stay of execution of the judgment that removed him from office on 14th April 2014.
“On 29thApril 2014, the Court of Appeal dismissed Chief Umeh’s application for a stay of execution of the Abuja Federal High Court Judgment. The appellate court has reserved judgment in the matter,” the party wrote in the letter.
Chief Okwu’s faction of the party had nominated deputy national chairman (South), Chief Chris Ejike Uche and its national secretary, Dr. Sagir Auwal Maidoya to the confab before they were later withdrawn by the government.
The party craved President Jonathan’s indulgence to intervene to allow APGA delegates take their place in the confab aimed at addressing critical issues and challenges affecting the nation.
