Abia state chapter of All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) has apologized to her governorship candidate in the 2015 and 2019 elections, Dr. Alex Otti over the insults it said was meted to him by people the party described as disgruntled former SWC members of the party.
The party said it was also strategizing on how to equally beg the likes of Chief (Mrs) Bianca Odumegwu Ojukwu, Senators Patrick Uba, Stella Oduah and Frank Nneji (ABC Transport).
Others the party said it would beg include Chief David Ogba Onuoha, Chief Chris Nkwonta and Chief Okey Eze among others.
Addressing journalists at the party secretariat in Umuahia, the chairman of the party in the state that is loyal to Otti, Chief Nkem Okoro said their action was hinged on the fact that the respected former members of APGA left as a result of atrocities committed by the former national leadership of the party.
“We are using this medium to apologise to all those who were insulted and provoked to leave the party. We are specially apologising to the former leader of our party in Abia, Dr. Alex Otti who has just indicated his intention to leave the party”.
