Crises:APC launches peace committee in response to the Abia crisis

A peace and reconciliation committee has been established "to bring the party together" by the national leadership of the All Progressives Congress in response to the party's continued division in the Abia State chapter. After the governorship primary, there was a new issue inside the Abia APC, which has lasted despite a meeting for reconciliation on June 18, 2022, which was held in Ntalakwu, Oboro Ikwuano Local Government Area.


However, following a "comprehensive meeting" between the National Working Committee and stakeholders from Abia on Wednesday in Abuja, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, the National Chairman of the APC, announced the creation of an eight-member reconciliation committee.


Senator Chris Adighije, who is the committee's chairman, and Hon. Nkeiruka Onyejeocha, the deputy chief whip of the House of Representatives, are tasked with bringing peace to the Abia APC.


Other members include Chief Henry Ikechukwu Ikoh, Minister of State for Science, Technology, and Innovation; Chief Emeka Wogu, Former Minister of Labor; Hon. Martin Azubuike, Former Speaker of the Abia House of Assembly; Hon. Friday Nwosu, APC National Welfare Secretary; and Hon.


Emeka Atuma, Former Member of the House of Representatives. Asserting that the Abia APC stakeholders should go back to their state and find a long-term solution to the internal conflict, Senator Adamu hinted that the national leadership of the APC has grown weary of responding to complaints from Abia APC.


He emphasized the necessity for the Abia APC to organize itself and go into the general election in 2023 as a strong, cohesive family, and he issued a warning that he would not accept any justifications if the party failed to sweep Abia. With "what we have done today, the entire wards (in Abia) will experience peace," the APC National Chairman expressed optimism that genuine peace and reconciliation would return to Abia.


The official launch of the peace committee, according to him, "is the ultimate final step as NWC will not hold reconciliation sessions again" for Abia.


"We now leave it to the leaders of Abia to go and play their politics in Abia state," Adamu continued. "Abuja is not about Abia; go there, engage in political activity there, conduct appropriate lobbying, and find reconciliation; all politics is local.


"Abuja is the Federal Capital Territory; it is not an Abia locale. We travel here from different states. Let the Abians gather in a group seat. Senator Adighije, chairman of the Abia APC Reconciliation Committee, embraced the challenge of uniting the party's members and vowed to bring all parties engaged in the conflict together and find a resolution.
