The meeting was convened by Chief Maxi Okwu, who was recently recognised as APGA National Chairman by a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja.

A communiqué of the meeting signed by the party’s Acting National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Stanley Chira, said: “NEC reconfirms and further resolves the earlier decision taken on 16th February 2013 and on 22nd March 2013 at the one year anniversary of the demise of our Late Leader and Icon Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu.

She shall in his stead be acknowledged as LEADER.”
