Worried by the crisis rocking the All Progressives Congress (APC) Enugu State Chapter, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama and some elders of APC of that state met on Tuesday night in Abuja to resolve the matter.
The meeting which was convened at the instance of the minister, was according to him, aimed at restoring peace among the leadership of the party.
The minister at the end of the closed door meeting said that participants were keen at resolving the lingering leadership, party exco crisis and other issues that had brought instability into the party.
“We are very keen to stabilise the party in Enugu State and to understand ourselves.
“We all had an inclusive meeting in preparation for the election.
“It was not a comprehensive meeting in the sense that not everybody that could have been here was here but I think it is very important to build a consensus in Enugu APC.”
He said that the issue of leadership crisis in the state party was discussed and that the leaders were all fully united about the way forward.
He maintained that the APC was strong in the state and that the party had people who can deliver in the state.
Onyeama said that there were plans to recall the suspended state chairman of the party.
“There are plans to have another meeting after this and we are pretty confident that in that meeting we will formally resolve all the outstanding issues,” he said.
It could be recalled that the state party chairman Dr Ben Nwoye was on July 3, suspended by the State Working Committee anti-party activities.
Those who attended the Abuja meeting were the Director General of Voice of Nigeria Osita Okechukwu, Sen Fidelis Okoro, Dr Kennet Okonkwo, an actor.
