A former governorship candidate in Imo State and a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr. Uche Nwosu, has tasked the leadership of the ruling party on the urgent need to reconcile all the factions in states before the scheduled February, 2023 National Convention.
In his estimation, holding the much-anticipated convention without first resolving the crises rocking some state chapters of the party, will not augur well for the APC.
“The best thing the leadership of this party will do and I will is to reconcile the different factions in APC in the different states, if you don’t do this, we are going to lose a quite number of people in the party. You can’t have different factions in almost 12 or 13 states and you go ahead to conduct a national convention and you believe that it doesn’t matter.
“It doesn’t matter in Kwara, in Lagos, in Adamawa, in Kano, Imo and many other states.
“So if the party leadership can be able to reconcile these different groups in the APC, then the party will come out stronger, it does not take anything. You see other political parties reconcile their members and move forward and I ask myself, what are we doing, is it that this power we got by the special Grace of God that we no longer remember how we suffered and laboured to get it.
“Are we now behaving like other parties that got power and they forgot to remember that power is transient, so the leadership of the party should first of all manage the crisis in the party within these few months before we go into the national convention,” Nwosu said.
While dismissing purported reports that the APC may have zoned the Chairmanship of the party to the South East, the politician stressed that the party has not come out with any such an arrangement.
