The All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA), at a meeting of its Interim National Working Committee and forum of State Chairmen, has re-affirmed its decision not to join the All Progressive Congress (APC).
After the meeting of the Party, which was held in Abuja, on Tuesday, the party said that it was not joining the APC, and a communiqué issued after the meeting reads in part: “our great party has never been consulted nor participated in any discussion about any merger, alliance or whatever union with any political party or parties. We state categorically and unequivocally that APGA is not party to any merger arrangement.”
The meeting also accepted the judgment of the High Court of Enugu State which sacked the leadership of former chairman, Chief Victor Umeh, in good faith and promised to abide by the judgement in order to move the party forward. They also commended the policy thrust of the interim National Working Committee led by Barrister Maxi Okwu on rapprochment, reconciliation and re-integration.
The party then resolved to admit without pre-conditions, all former members of APGA who expressed desire to return to the party and to also grant pardon to all previously sanctioned members of the party who genuinely sought to return and re-build the party. In addition, at the meeting, the party urged that an immediate date be taken to commence the process of new membership registration / review of membership register and congresses leading to national convention, which, it said, would hold in Enugu.
