Fresh crisis in Anambra APC over guber primary
FRESH crisis is brewing over disputed All Progressives Congress (APC) primaries for the Anambra governorship poll as the party’s appeal committee has upheld the outcome of the poll that produced Andy Uba as winner.
Although National Secretary of the APC Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee, John James Akpanudoedehe, claimed ignorance of any discontent, he reminded the aggrieved aspirants protesting the outcome that the party leadership still remains the supreme deciding factor to determine who becomes the candidate of the party for the Anambra poll.
Speaking while receiving the appeal committee’s report at the party’s national secretariat in Abuja, yesterday, he said the final decision would be guided by the report and recommendations submitted by the committee.
However, a source said the committee did not only uphold the outcome of the primaries, but it also recommended that the party leadership used the presidency to pacify the aggrieved aspirants.
“I can confirm to you that the appeal committee has upheld the outcome of the primaries conducted in Anambra, which produced Senator Andy Uba, despite the protests from other aggrieved aspirants.
“However, aware of the backlash it will produce, the committee and the party leadership seems to have resolved to use the presidency to pacify and appeal to the aggrieved aspirants with the conviction that many of them will not object to the intervention from the presidency,” he said.
