- The All Progressives Congress (APC) has revealed why it lost the southeast geopolitical zone in the last general elections
- The APC in the southeast on Thursday, June 6, said that it lost in during the polls due to internal rancour in the party
- It said that it has resolved to reconcile some of its aggrieved members, so that it can reposition itself for victory come 2023
The All Progressives Congress (APC) has begun moves to reconcile its aggrieved members across the five states of the southeast geo-political zone of the country.
Emeka Wogu, the chairman of the APC's reconciliation, peace, strengthening and repositioning committee said in Enugu on Thursday, June 6, that the move was to strengthen and reposition the party in the zone, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.
Wogu made this known after the inaugural sitting of the 13-member committee on Thursday. “The APC South-East zone gave us the mandate to reconcile and make peace with a view of strengthening and repositioning the party in the whole of South-East.
“Taking into consideration that certain members of our party felt so dissatisfied with the process of congresses, primaries and the main elections, they felt aggrieved and that is the reason why this committee was set-up,’’ he said.
According to him, the committee will speak to authority and speak truth to leaders of the party on the need to reconcile and ensure that APC remains `one-big-family’ just as its logo the broom depicts.
“We have agreed that every state should come with its peculiarities or what led to the disorganisation and lack of peace in their states. And at the end of the day, we will distill issues and visit all the states.
“We will also visit our leaders in the states and speak truth to them and find a way of repositioning the party in the South-East to face the evolving realities of political dialectics of our party and of our country.
“So that by 2023, we will be in a position to win the elections that we couldn’t win because of internal wrangling, which led to certain sabotages against our party.
“So in 2023, we will do well and then, we will look at all positions available in this country, not limited to only National Assembly and Governorship but including the big one (presidency), we need to go for it, negotiate for it and become relevant,’’ he said.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that the crises rocking the APC in Zamfara took a new twist on Monday, June 3, with the party in the state expelling Senator Kabiru Marafa.
Marafa had taken the party to court in the aftermath of the governorship primary election in the state which was not in his favour.
In the heat of the political squabbles, the Supreme Court recently declared the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) winner of the governorship, National Assembly and state legislative elections after ruling disqualifying the APC.
