The leadership crisis rocking the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), in Orumba North Local Government Area of Anambra State yesterday took another dimension as prominent stakeholders including a serving state legislator, Romanus Obi rejected the leadership of Mr Okwudili Ezenwankwo who was endorsed recently by the National Chairman, Chief Victor Oye.

The statement issued at the end of the meeting read: “We’ll continue to affirm our unalloyed support to Chief Okey Ezeibe, Okey Udeh (B.O.T. members); Romanus Obi (House of Assembly member) and Okey Enekwe (Chairman Transition Committee, Orumba North as authentic leaders of APGA who became leaders by virtue of various key positions they hold in the party,” they assured.
