The founding national chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Chief Chekwas Okorie, has returned to the party.
Chief Okorie who was welcomed back in Enugu on Wednesday by the national chairman of APGA, Chief Edozie Njoku, and the members of the party’s National Working Committee assured to rebuild the party.
He said “this is a special day in the history of Igbo land and Nigeria and we are back to the party to rebuild and restructure our party.
Our correspondent reports that Chief Okorie left the APGA some years ago following irreconcilable differences with the then leadership of the party under Senator Victor Umeh and formed the United Progressives Party (UPP), from where he later defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
He described APGA as the only political party in Nigeria established on the provision of true federalism, determination of all the ethnic groups in Nigeria and devolution of power.
“New dawn has beckoned for APGA. I am happy to come back home. APGA is our own and we must make sure it continues to wax stronger always.
He expressed the determination of the new APGA leadership to reconcile all aggrieved members. “We must bring back all our aggrieved members and restore peace to our great party.”
