The APC governors in their consultations to stabilize the party met Wednesday night.

The chairman of PGF, Hope Uzodinma addressing the media after their meeting said, “We had a very successful meeting, I’m sure you must have heard, which I’m a also aware that some of you are anxious to know what is going on in our party and the country but we deliberated in so many issues that have to do with our party, the APC.

“You must have heard of the resignation of the National Chairman of our party and the National Secretary of the party. Those are voluntary actions that have been taken and with due respect to our national chairman, our secretary. We commended the wisdom in what they have done and they served us well in the party, we are happy with the services and the party is United, there is no crisis in the party. They are happy; we also are happy. So, we are in support of their actions and they would continue to be commented and be respected and recognise the services they have rendered to our great party.

“There resignations have also been accepted by the leadership of the party. There is an acting chairman now and there is acting Secretary.”

Speaking on the increase of oil pump price and the effect, he said, “I decided to do with the controversial social media posting of our upcoming FAAC, we are aware that the result of the removal of fuel subsidy will increase the volume of money that would be recieved by us during the Federation Account meeting and we are working with Federal government to ensure that the process of that FAAC will be utilised in a manner that the citizens of the country are happy, the Labour happy, we also the practitioners happy. And also the Economic of the country would be protected, our economic managers supported to ensure that our…. Margin is not tempered with in the International market instead to improve upon. So what has happened is something that we should be happy about.

“The current hardship occasioned by the price increase on both food, Petroleum products and cost of living is being addressed. The sub National government is working with the Federal government and tomorrow there would be National Executive Council to discuss further on that.”

Asked that the constitution of the party does not allow for caretaker he said, “l don’t know if you have become supreme court to interpret the constitution of our party but I can tell you that there is no problem in our party. We won our last election landslides, we are working hard and next election I’m sure next election we would even win better.

“The constitution of the party in the absence of substantive National chairman, the Deputy National Chairman from the same zone where the National chairman comes from would take over and the deputy national secretary would also take over and that was what has happened in our great party and we are happy with it.”
