In a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Lanre Issa-Onilu, the APC said it was concerned by the worsening situation in the state chapter, noting that a lasting solution to the disagreements would be found.

Onilu added that Anselm Ojezua’s suspension, will remain effective until the fact-finding and reconciliation committee produced its report.
