Former Imo State governor and current Senator representing Orlu West in the upper chambers of the Nigerian national assembly, Senator Rochas Okorocha has given fresh conditions for peace in the Imo State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The Eastern Updates reports that despite the fresh two weeks window granted for registration and revalidation of members by the National Caretaker Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Imo State, the crisis in the party in the state persists, as Okorocha’s group have now insisted on fresh registration exercise that will be supervised by the Daniel Nwafor-led executive committee as an important condition for peace.
The former Imo State Governor made his latest position known after a meeting with some members of the APC Caretaker Extra-Ordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) at the party Secretariat in Abuja on Tuesday.
Okorocha, who led a group known as Imo APC Pioneer Group to the meeting told reporters that there was no membership registration in the state as the Daniel Nwafor-led executive were allegedly not allowed to carry out the exercise, insisting that ‘any registration that doesn’t take Daniel Nwafor as the Chairman of the party is illegal.’
Though Okorocha failed to mention those behind the alleged illegality, it was widely reported that the former governor and his group have not had their membership revalidated due to supremacy faceoff between him and Governor Hope Uzodimma.
The lawmaker complained that things were not going right with the party in the state and cautioned that the party should follow the path of rule of law, do the right thing and avoid any untoward consequences to the party as it gears up for congresses.
