THE embattled National Chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, Chief Victor Oye, has  pleaded with party members of the party, the National Working Committee and BOT to forgive his misgivings for the interest of the Igbo party.

Oye, who made the plea on Friday at the Ogirisi Igbo Spiritual Centre, Rojenny Games Village, Oba, Anambra State,  noted that peace, love, mutual forgiveness and stability alone could salvage APGA even as the party plans to retain its dominance and leadership in  the state and beyond.

The APGA boss, who visited Oba for a scheduled meeting with Ogirisi Igbo and some party stakeholders, said: “What we need in APGA is brotherly love, not conflicts. Those who know me very well will attest that I am born to serve; not to rule, suppress or dominate others. This is why I have not made attempts to run for any elective position for the past 35 years that I have been in active politics.

“I have the humility to serve; I do not live false life. In APGA, we cannot make meaningful progress if we fail to forgive ourselves of our individual shortcomings.

“What joins me and you and others who are party members is our dear party, APGA. I wish to extend an olive branch to all APGA members, including BoT members, as well as members of the National Working Committee (NWC), and all supporters of our dear party. In whatever way that I have offended, please, forgive; so that together, we can build a formidable APGA.”

Earlier, Chief Rommy Ezeonwuka, (Ogirisi Igbo), who is the proprietor of Rojenny Games Village, as well as a member of APGA Board of Trustees (BoT), told party members that the National Chairman of the party, Oye, was at his country home because of the crisis in the party which bothers on his chairmanship position.
