South East Progressives Assembly has, ahead of the forthcoming national convention of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, rallied support for the candidacy of Chief Emeka Diwe as the national chairman of the party.
The group in a release signed by Ebere Uzoukwa and Munonye Maximus , president and secretary of the group respectively noted that the position of the national party chairman of APGA which is expected to be zoned to Imo state must be occupied by a credible, mature, peace loving and level headed personality as represented by Diwe.
While SEPA decries the crisis bedeviling APGA for a long period now, it maintained that APGA needs a tested administrator who will reposition and unite the different contending interests in the party.
“APGA remains the political identity of Ndigbo. Every Igboman is attached to APGA; so, we are worried about the state of affairs in APGA. The party needs to elect an experienced hand to reposition and unite its many contending interests.
“SEPA testifies of Chief Emeka Diwe’s acumen as a good manager of men. He is a tested administrator who will be an asset to APGA if elected to the position of national chairman.
“We are calling on stakeholders of the party to support Chief Diwe’s candidature. APGA needs a man who is acceptable to groups in the party, and Chief Emeka Diwe perfectly fits the bill”.
The group further urged Senator Alphonsus Igbeke, Chief Austin Ndigwe and others, who are believed to be interested in the national chairmanship position, to collapse their ambition and support Diwe in the interest of the party.
