Abuja: Chief Edozie Njoku, the reinstated National Chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, has sued for peace, urging all aggrieved members, including the sacked former National Chairman, Chief Victor Oye, to join him in moving the party forward.

Njoku, who holds the revered chieftaincy title of Onwa Ibeku, Mbaise, made the appeal recently, at a press conference in Abuja. According to him, ” APGA is a party desirous of making significant inroads into the nation’s political space in the 2023 general elections”

Displaying a copy of the said judgement, Njoku, a foundation member of the party said he approached the Supreme Court to review its earlier position on the matter, adding that in its wisdom, the apex court ruled in his favour. He was sacked by the lower court and went on to lose at the appellate court. Not satisfied, he approached the Supreme Court to rule on the matter.He said: “I was removed by the lower court in Jigawa state. We went on an appeal and we saw what happened at the appeal court. We went to the supreme Court, things happened, but the Supreme Court is full of wise men and women and we took our time, asked them to look at that thing again and yesterday (Monday), it was revised.

“Not revised but they just took the name; it is just a name that was inserted where it was supposed to have been and they now put things back in place. We are going to have another press conference but what I really want to do is to thank all Nigerians who have stood behind justice, who have stood behind truth, all those who have laboured under the side of truth. For the past four years, we have been crying.”

According to him, a meeting of key stakeholders of the party will hold soon to chart the way forward, saying “everyone who left our party, please come back. There is room for all of us. APGA is not an Igbo party, but a party the Igbos have strong sentiment for.

.“And I beg the seven members of the National Working Committee to calm down. We have to reduce the rhetorics of insulting one another. Oye is a gentleman and I have high respect for him as a former national chairman of our party.“He (Oye) will be one of those I will reach out to, and he is not an imposter. He was the national chairman of APGA from 2015 to 2019. We should respect him as the former national chairman of the party no matter his shortcomings which we can say are excessive but everyone has his own shortcomings.”

Surprisingly, Oye described the Supreme Court judgment as “fake”
