The All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) in Ebonyi State has held another primary today (Tuesday, July 12) which was held for the conduct of another round of primary elections to replace candidates who left the party ahead of the 2023 general poll.
The Ebonyi Chairman of APGA, Ricky Okorouka, told newsmen on Sunday in Abakaliki that candidates would be vying for seats in the Senate and the House of Representatives, among other positions.
“The elections will hold at the various secretariats of the party in the state.
“We have asked the Independent National Electoral Commission to monitor the exercise,“ he said.
Okorouka urged members to be steadfast and uphold party’s principles and ideology.
“We intend to replicate the Anambra State experience in Ebonyi having chosen a formidable candidate for the 2023 governorship race,” he said.
In another report, a chieftain of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Ijere Amadi, has accused a factional National Chairman of the party, Chief Edozie Njoku of doctoring the judgement of the Supreme Court on the leadership of the party.
According to Amadi, Njoku ‘appeared’ from nowhere since May 9, 2022, and began parading himself as the National Chairman of APGA, claiming that the apex court had reportedly reviewed its earlier judgement, which affirmed Victor Oye, as the authentic Chairman of the party on October 14, 2021.
In a statement on Friday, he alleged that investigation at the apex court showed that Njoku doctored the judgment to suit his selfish interest.
Amadi, therefore, called on the police to as a matter of urgency arrest Njoku and his collaborators.
The party chieftain, who identified himself as a founding member of APGA, maintained that contrary to the stories being bandied about by Njoku, the Supreme Court never reviewed any judgment or recognized him as national chairman of APGA.
