The cold war in the Imo State chapter of the All Progressive Congress, APC, came to the fore, weekend, when the Marcellinus Nlemigbo led caretaker Committee, made it clear that the party does not have two State party Chairmen.
According to a statement signed by Cajethan Duke, Director General, Imo APC Media centre and made available to this newspaper, the party kicked against “a concocted letter of congratulation to the newly inaugurated Chairman of the caretaker Committee/Extra ordinary convention committee of our great party, APC, purportedly written by Dan Nwafor and his co-traveller, Obioma Ireagwu”
The statement continued “Though worthless and not deserving of our response, but for clarification purposes and the benefits of our teaming members we want to make it manifestingly clear that the APC in Imo State has no two chairmen.
“We do not have two factions either. Imo State APC is a one united family held under one article of faith, and ably led by our indifatigable 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.
