Due to an ongoing effort to win the Imo state governorship poll, Nigeria’s President Bola Ahmed Tinubu reconciled Governor Hope Uzodinma and his predecessor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha.
Vice President Kashim Shettima and the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Umar Ganduje were on hand at the reconciliatory parley held on Thursday at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Meanwhile, a former Chief of staff to the Imo state government, Uche Nwosu, during a courtesy call on Ganduje at the APC Secretariat in Abuja, urged the National Chairman to carry everyone along, and to bring harmony in the party.
Nwosu said there is a need for a united APC to enable the party to bring the dividends of democracy to Nigerians.
Uzodimma and Okorocha, who have become political enemies in recent times, arrived at the State House in the company of the National Chairman of the governing APC.
According to the Presidency sources, “less than one hour after the parties arrived, they were joined by the Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu.”
