The All Progressives Congress (APC) National Chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, reportedly summoned all the chairmen of party across the 36 state chapters to a meeting that lasted over four hours on Wednesday, June 17.

According to report, the meeting held behind closed doors and details the agenda was sketchy but chairmen of two state chapters hinted that it bothered on the March 28 and April 11 general elections – a review.

One of the chairmen from a state in the North-West told Punch that he considered the meeting necessary to register his displeasure over the way some of them were sidelined on party matters.

He said, “As chairmen of the party at the level of states, we worked for the party and we deserve to be carried along now that the victory has been won.

“We are, however, not happy that we are being kept in the dark about happenings within the party and we told him so.

“We raised this issue because the states are being neglected and since we do not support disunity within our party, we decided to meet with the chairman to work out ways of improving the situation in the interest of the party.

“On his part, the national chairman told us he has been looking for an opportunity to meet with us to share ideas but that the electioneering campaigns and the limited time the party had to organise itself before the election made it difficult.”

The Chairman however said there was no discussion over the crisis that rocked the party before and after the National Assembly elections.
