The All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) is beginning to experience some cracks in its national leadership following the perceived plot to deny incumbent Anambra State Governor, Chief Willie Obiano a return ticket.

The National Secretary of APGA, Mr. Labaran Maku, made the disclosure at the end of the meeting of the National Executive of the party held in Awka.

Earlier, an Enugu High Court presided over by Justice A.R Odoemena had on May 22, 2017 ordered the removal of the National Chairman of APGA, Chief Victor Oye and replaced him with Chief Martin Agbaso.

In order of mandamus, the judge had asked the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the Police to stop further dealings with Oye as the party’s National Chairman.

Rising from a meeting in Awka on Thursday, the National Executive Council of APGA, presided over by Oye, dissociated itself from the leadership of Agbaso, labelling his actions as the height of impunity. It said that the crisis in APGA was instigated by Obiano's detractors.

Addressing journalists at the end of the meeting, Maku noted that what was in contention was not the national leadership of the party, saying: “What is happening is an orchestrated plan to destabilise Governor Willie Obiano ahead of the upcoming governorship election in the state.”

In his words, “Anambra has now become a model for good governance and the transformation that has taken place under the APGA regime proves that it has the solution to the nation’s political and socio-economic challenges.

“It has become very clear to the opposition that they cannot win Governor Obiano at the polls due to his outstanding performance which is widely acclaimed, hence their new antics to plant the seed of discord in the party.”
