This follows the reaction of Nlemigbo who is presently the caretaker State Chairman of the party on the Advertorial credited to the embattled factional state chairman of the APC, Daniel Nwafor who as contained in the said letter congratulated the newly appointed National Acting Chairman of the APC.
In a press release signed by Cajetan Duke, Director General, Imo APC media center and made available to Lead, he called on the party faithful to disregard the said advertorial by Nwafor while describing the Imo APC as an indivisible entity under the leadership of Nlemigbo as caretaker
We have read with an alarming irritation a concocted letter of congratulation to the newly inaugurated Chairman of the Care Taker Committee/ Extra Ordinary Convention Committee of our great party, APC, purportedly written by Dan Nwafor and his co-traveler, Obioma Ireagwu.
Though worthless and not deserving of our response, for clarification purposes and the benefits of our teaming members we want to make it manifestly clear that the APC in Imo State has no two chairmen. We do not have two factions either. Imo State APC is one united family held under one article of faith and ably led by our indefatigable nay visionary Chief (Barrister) Marcellinus Nlemigbo as chairman and His Excellency, Distinguished Senator Hope Uzodimma as the leader of the party.
Against this background, we call on members of APC to disregard that misdirected advertorial. It was inappropriate and wrongly conceived. We have every reason to proclaim it to the rooftops that it was also wrongly targeted as well as wrongly signed as it has doubtful authorship.
Taken together, we reiterate that the APC is stronger, bigger, and better in our dear state, and no amount of sponsored distraction both internal or external is capable of frustrating the renewed sense of unity of purpose and clarity of vision existing in our party today.
