The National leadership of APC at Abuja has recognized Chief Dan Nwafor as the authentic Chairman of the All progressive Congress, APC Imo state Chapter.

The party through its National Secretary, Senator Ayiola Omisore in a letter dated, June 15,2022 addressed to Chief Daniel Nwafor with caption,”Reinstatement of The Daniel Nwafor Led Executive” directed that Nwafor should with immediate effect, take over the party’s secretariat in Imo state.

The is coming barely few weeks after Supreme Court delivered a judgement affirming decision of the lower courts on the leadership of the party in Imo which was rebuffed by senator Hope Uzodinma.

Uzodinma in an interview shortly after the verdict argued that only the APC national body that has the final say on who is the authentic Chairman of the party, implying  that his government would not obey the Supreme Court judgement. 

The letter addressed to Nwafor reads in part,”I write to convey the decision of the leadership of the Party to comply with the Supreme Court judgment on the case between APC V Evan Enwerem & 2 others (SC/CV/884/2020) which ordered for the reinstatement of Daniel Nwafor State led Executive of the Party in Imo State.

“You are by this development directed to take possession of the Party Secretariat and as well take charge of all Party activities in the State as the Chairman until the expiration of your tenure on 31st July, 2022.

“While congratulating you, please accept the assurance of my highest regards.

When contacted, Nwafor said his reinstatement will help to build a formidable APC in Imo.According to him, he has not come on vendetta mission but to serve the party and bring everyone on one pace. 

In a swift reaction, the Macdonald Ebere led faction of APC through the Publicity secretary, Mr Cajetan Duke described the letter reinstating Nwafor and his executive members  as fake, urging party members to disregard such letter.He stated that the National leadership of APC knows the proper channel to communicate them and wouldn’t have done it through Nwafor.
