OWERRI – Chieftains of All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, Imo State, have distanced themselves from the merger that gave birth to All Progressives Congress, APC.
Addressing journalists in Owerri, APGA State Vice Chairman, Sir David Iwuagwu, said: “The purported merger of our great party with four other parties to form a messianic mega party called APC or any other acronym by which such party may be known, exists in the imagination of those propagating it.”
Iwuagwu categorically stated that at no time did their party take such a decision, adding that APGA remained a strong registered political party and will continue to grow and expand on its own.
“Here in Imo State, the implosion became a big problem to manage since the production of the sitting governor. Factions, real and imagined, have dotted the landscape,” Iwuagwu lamented.
He debunked the rumour that APGA had disintegrated or lost grip of its stronghold; he enjoined their members to remain loyal to its leadership.
