The Chief Whip of the Senate, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu has said stakeholders in the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) will resolve the crisis bedevilling the Abia State chapter of the party.
Addressing some leaders of the party from Bende Local Government Area on Thursday evening in Abuja, the former Abia State governor said the communication gap led to the crisis.
“I am all out to reconcile everyone. I don’t belong to any faction, I didn’t support any group, but it is time to come together because APC in Abia is one big family.
“I am in touch with all aggrieved members to ensure that the party is not consumed by the crisis rocking it. I must unite all and I am currently doing it.
“I am appealing to you all to unite because united we stand and divided we fall. Go back and tell others that APC shall come back stronger and I am committed to the unity and success of the party,” he said.
Abia State APC has been rocked by a leadership crisis, leading to the emergence of two factions. Both factions organised parallel congresses at the ward, local government, and state levels, which resulted in two rival leaderships.
