This move was necessary, as there are fears that the crisis rocking the party may affect the party in the state and in the south-east.
Sources said the party’s leadership resolved to invite Uzoma Ezediaro, the lawmaker representing Oguta state constituency, believed to have spearheaded Uche Nwosu’s endorsement, and other members, to explain why they perceive Nwosu as the best governorship candidate in 2019.
Anti-Okorocha elements who have vowed to resist the move of the lawmaker’s action led to the factionalisation of the party.
The Nation Online gathered that others opposed to the endorsement will also be invited to explain their opposition to ensure a quick resolution of the crisis which is said to be giving party leaders sleepless nights.
Crisis began in Imo APC when Ezediaro rallied his colleagues to endorse Governor Rochas Okorocha’s Chief of Staff, Uche Nwosu, as the party’s preferred governorship candidate for the 2019 election. But the move was opposed by stakeholders led by Deputy Governor Prince Eze Madumere.
