APGA denies alliance with ACN, CPC

The Chairman of All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) South-East, Chief Ejike Uche, has denied rumours that his party was proposing a merger with the Action Congress of Nigeria (CAN) and the Congress for Progress Change (CPC).

Briefing newsmen in Owerri, Imo State recently, Chief Uche said that the insinuation arose from a statement credited to the APGA Secretary, Alhaji Shinkafi.

He clarified that Shinkafi meant that the party was ready to go into coalition with any party but the parties in the coalition could balance their interests.

He admonished all Igbos to identify with APGA just as Yorubas identified with CAN and northerners the CPC.

Chief Uche said that a crisis in a political party should not form an excuse for members to leave, noting that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has severally had its share of crises but members did not abandon the party.

The APGA chieftain admitted that the party had a problem but said that the problem has been solved.

He thanked the Governor of Imo State, Owelle Anayo Rochas Okorocha, for his support to the party and charged all Igbos to emulate him.
