The Leader of the National Reconciliation Committee of the All Progressives Congress, APC, former Governor of Nasarawa State and Senator representing Nasarawa West District, Adamu Abdullahi has stated that, from all indications, the Abia State APC factional leader, High Chief Ikechi Emenike has no case to put before the Committee.
Speaking to correspondents immediately after a meeting to reconcile the crisis ravaging the Abia APC, on Friday, at Abuja, Abdullahi said, “the person who would want to be seen as a complainant did not appear. His name is Ikechi Emenike. We invited him, and he refused to turn up. He was duly invited, and from all indications, he has no case to put before us”.
The Senator, who disclosed that the Committee had very useful discussions with principal stakeholders of Abia APC, said they would make their report to the National Headquarters of the party.
“I don’t believe we could have any better representation in terms of the interests of the party, the leadership of the party and stakeholders of the party than we have had today. So we appreciate them. We’ll make our report to the national headquarters, and with time we’ll do reports for all the others that we have undertaken. And we are hoping that the outcome will be extremely positive.” he said.
Former Chairman of Abia State APC, Hon. Chief Donatus Nwankpa, who said the problem in Abia APC was induced by the National Secretariat of the party, contended it would be wrong to impose leadership on Abia APC.
He said, “they have seen the truth and the truth will set everybody free including you press men. Because when you report against the truth, the truth will not set you free. Also, we want you to let the world know that Abia APC does not have problem. The problem we have is the one induced from the National Secretariat, using the National Secretary as the arrowhead. That is the situation.”
Abia APC stakeholders that attended the meeting were: Sir Marc Wabara, Senator Nkechi Nwaogu, Senator Chris Adighije, Dr. Emeka Wogu, Chief Alex Otti, DIG Azubuko Udah (retd), Hon Donatus Nwankpa and Hon. Acho Obioma.
Also among the delegation were Chief Sam Nkire, Dr. Chidia Maduekwe, Rt. Hon. Martin Azubuike, Sir Stanley Ohajuruka, Hon. Nnanna Kalu, Chief Nduka Anyanwu and so many other leaders.
