Crisis: APGA warns primary election manipulators

The All Progressives Grand alliance (APGA) has warned that all officials who subverted the party’s primary election processes in Anambra would be sanctioned.

The Secretary of APGA reconciliation Committee for Anambra, Chief Ifeatu Obi-Okoye, said this in an interview with journalists in Awka.

Obi-Okoye said the party was saddened that officials who were given the responsibility of conducting the exercise took undue advantage of members.

He said the committee headed by Dr Uju Okeke was already making progress in the mandate to ensure that justice was done and that peace returned to APGA.

“Any member of the party who has been involved in a form of criminality in the course of the conduct of the primary elections will definitely be brought to book.

“The party has directed us to make strong recommendations against any member of the party who has been involved any act that has brought the party to public disrepute.

“We are also considering assuaging all grievances within the statutory limitations like how and when to make substitutions if the need arises, what is more important is bringing back peace to the party,” he said.

Obi-Okoye, who is the Special Adviser to Gov. Willie Obiano on Political Matters, however said the crisis was exaggerated with ‘so much noise’ on the internet.

He said APGA conducted lawful primary elections in Anambra, but admitted that the party was overwhelmed by the surge in population of those interested in running on its platform.
