Imo State Chairman of All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Peter Ezeobi, at the weekend, said that the party’s choice of Senator Ifeanyi Godwin Ararume as the governorship standard bearer of the party in the state was a landmark decision collectively taken to ensure the party emerges victorious in next year’s poll.

Ezeobi, who spoke during a formal presentation of the party’s flag to Ararume at the party’s secretariat in Owerri, also stated that the petitions from the aggrieved aspirants were being looked into by the national leadership of the party.

In his speech at the occasion, when his supporters thronged Sam Mbakwe International Cargo Airport to welcome him, Senator Ararume, who moved in a motorcade to the party’s secretariat, pleaded with the aggrieved aspirants numbering over 15 to join him and work for victory next year.

While urging journalists to be objective in their reportage of political events, the APGA gubernatorial candidate said: “For us members of APGA, our women, our youths, at the end of the day, the victory would be ours.

My advice is for us to be our brothers’ keepers; this situation we have on our hands is of no victor, no vanquished. My brothers who aspired meant well. They see me well. All of us should work as one.”

It would be recalled that other aspirants faulted the process that led to Ararume’s emergence, which threw up a group known as New All Progressives Grand Alliance (N-APGA), with one of the governorship aspirants, Ike C. Ibe, as its national chairman.

Arrowheads of the renegade party said the political association would be registered with Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as a result of perceived injustice by APGA for not allowing thorough primaries to take place in Imo.

Their national office is located on 186 Whetheral Road, Owerri, even as they demanded the refund of N4 billion paid by various aspirants from APGA leadership alongside the threat of inviting the anti-corruption and security agencies to take necessary actions.

Meanwhile, National Reconciliation Committee (NRC) has been raised by APGA National Working Committee (NWC) to reconcile the aspirants and other differences that arose from the just concluded primaries.

The committee, led by Chief Jerry Chukwueke, indicated in a statement on its arrival in the state that they would work for seven days.
