The National Executive Committee of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA has sacked the two factional Chairmen of the Party and appointed a new Acting National Chairman, Chief Jude Okeke.

He listed the sacked members to include Chinedu Obidigwe, Barr. Hamman Buba Ghide, Barr. Sylvester Ezeokenwa, Adamu Danjuma Musa, Chief Uchenna Okogbuo, Barr. Ifeanyi Mbaeri are suspended indefinitely from the party for anti-party activities, gross misconduct and conduct capable of bringing the party’s image to disrepute among others.
Furthermore, the party NEC also resolved to nullify the disqualification of 5 aspirants for the Governorship election in Anambra who were disqualified by the Victor Oye-led faction declaring that no person had been disqualified and that any purported disqualification was done without the authority of the Party.
The disqualified aspirants include Nze Sullivan Akachukwu Nwankpo, Hon. Okafor Nonso Smart, Hon Chukwuma Michael Umeoji, Ozoka Odera Ifeanyi, and Umeoduagu Nnamdi Dike
The Party also extended the sale of its Governorship forms to the 25th of June, 2021, rescheduled the primary election for July 1, 2021, while canceling the earlier fixed dates of 23rd June and 25th June while warning aspirants who had picked the forms to keep away from those dates. The Party also resolved to apologize to its members in Imo State who were defrauded by the Party and denied the opportunity to participate in the primary election of the Party.
In his acceptance speech, Chief Jude Okeke who was sworn in at the event said it seemed over the years; APGA was comfortable with having only Anambra as its only state but that the fortunes of the party would grow under his leadership.
It would be recalled that APGA had been enmeshed in leadership tussle ahead of the Anambra Guber polls.
