The All Progressive Grand Alliance, APGA, National Working Committee at the weekend passed a vote of confidence on Gov Willie Obiano of Anambra State, saying he had performed well by recording landmark achievements in several areas.
The party also appointed five new national officers to replace those expelled in Dec. 2016.
The party made this known in a communique issued at the end of its National Working Committee (NWC) meeting at the weekend, a copy of which was made available to The AUTHORITY.
An APGA NEC meeting had in December expelled seven members including Mr Campbell Nzekwe, Chief Ozo Nwabueze (late), Mr Jerry Obasi, Mrs Ezinne Agbagwu, Mr Chucks Nwoga, Mr Terry Godfrey and Okey Okoloagwu.
The National Publicity Secretary of APGA, Mr Ifeatu Obi-Okoye, who read communique said the five new officers were appointed in acting capacity pending the ratification of their appointment by the National Executive Committee.
“Since nature abhors vacuum, the former members of the NWC that were expelled by the NEC at the NEC meeting of December 21, 2016 should be replaced. To this effect, five NWC members are appointed in acting capacity pending their ratification by the NEC”, he said.
The new appointees include, Mr Stephen Nwoga (Lagos), Acting Deputy Organising Secretary, Mrs Elizabeth Nwokocha (Imo), Acting Deputy Financial Secretary and Ms Ada Nwanyanwu (Imo) Acting National Woman Leader.
Others were Mr Chinedu Nebeife (Enugu) Acting National Youth Leader and Mr Uche Nwegbo Acting National Vice Chairman South East.
Obi-Okoye said the appointment is to take immediate effect while two national offices remaining vacant would be filled at a later date.
The APGA NWC passed a vote of confidence on Gov Obiano, saying he had performed outstandingly well by recording landmark achievements in several areas.
