The national organising secretary of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Osita Izunaso, senators Ifeanyi Araraume and Benjamin Uwajiumogu yesterday, stormed out midway into meeting of the party’s leadership in Imo State.
The meeting, held at Concorde Hotel in Owerri, behind closed door, lasted for about two hours and 30 minutes.
The state chairman, Hillary Eke, presided over the meeting which was said to have been allegedly boycotted by Governor Rochas Okorocha.
The governor, according to the report, had insisted that the meeting be held at the Imo Government House.
The state publicity secretary of the party, Nwabueze Oguchienti, who addressed newsmen, said the stakeholders addressed issues of internal democracy, the proposed local government election in June, and the party primary elections later in the year
He said, “The meeting reached resolutions on internal democracy, discipline, peace and unity of the party. We want to position our party ahead of party primary.”
Senators Izunaso, Araraume and Uwajiumogu refused to talk to journalists but the deputy governor told newsmen that “this is the first SEC meeting of the party. We urge our members to go on intensive mobilisation drive.”
The deputy chief of staff to the governor, Kingsley Uju, said Okorocha was out of the country, adding that “those who stormed out of the meeting did not mean well for the party in the state.”
