APGA Crisis: New National Chairman Njoku Appeals To Oye, Aggrieved Members To Sheath Their Swords

After the ruling of the Supreme Court reinstating him as the National chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, (APGA), Chief Edozie Njoku, has appealed to the suspended national chairman, Chief Victor Oye and all aggrieved members to sheath their swords and work to move the party forward.

Njoku, who spoke to journalists in Abuja on Tuesday, displayed a copy of the judgement, explaining that he approached the Supreme Court to review its earlier position on the matter and that in its wisdom, the apex court ruled in his favour.

Njoku was sacked by the lower court and went on to lose at the appellate court, but he approached the Supreme Court which has now ruled in his favor.

According to the new national chairman, “I was removed by the lower Court in Jigawa State. We went on an appeal and we saw what happened at the Appeal Court. We went to the supreme Court, the Supreme Court is full of wise men and women and we took our time, asked them to look at that thing again and yesterday (Monday), it was revised.”

Njoku said a meeting of key stakeholders of the party will hold soon to chart the way forward, saying “everyone who left our party, please come back. There is room for all of us. APGA is not an Igbo party, but a party the Igbos have strong sentiment for.

“We have to reduce the rhetorics of insulting one another. Oye is a gentleman and I have high respect for him as a former national chairman of our party.

“He (Oye) will be one of those I will reach out to. He was the national chairman of APGA from 2015 to 2019. We should respect him as the former national chairman of the party no matter his shortcomings which we can say are excessive but everyone has his own shortcomings.”

But in his reaction, Oye described the judgement as “a fake and doctored document” and promised to make public the true state of affairs of the party soon.
