Following controversies evoked by its primary elections, the Enugu State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has set up a reconciliation committee. Immediate past governor of Enugu State, Sullivan Chime is the head of the 6-man committee while the 2015 guber candidate of the party in the state, Okey Ezea is secretary. It could be recalled that Enugu is among the states where protests erupted over the outcome of the APC primaries. Inaugurating the committee at the party’s secretariat in Enugu, yesterday, the state chairman, Ben Nwoye urged them to assuage the feelings of all the angry members.
He said, “Talk to them that it is about Nigeria. Some of them have gone to APGA.
They should not waste their time in pursuing their political ambition in a party that barely exists in one state. “So, you have to talk to all those who are very aggrieved. Osita Okechukwu and Surv. P. C Eze, we need them to stay; their petition did not make the NWC change their stand on earlier decision on the primary. We have to appeal to all of them to accept it in good faith, so that we remain one family.” In his response on behalf of the committee, Chime assured that they would deliver on the mandate. Commenting on the primaries, the former governor said, “I’m happy over the outcome; if the opposition is not comfortable with your candidates it means you have succeeded. We are going for the election strong, on top. “The system must find a way of appeasing people. We are going to war with the other parties, so it is not time to talk about factions, we are all APC, when we come back, we settle our differences, but we must go for election as one strong APC, we must queue behind our candidates. “I believe before the end of this year, we will have a united party, we will campaign together and shame the opposition.”
