Some chieftains of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Imo State have called on President Muhammadu Buhari and the leadership to stop factionalisation of the party.
The party had been divided into two major camps – one loyal to Governor Hope Uzodimma and the other to former Governor Rochas Okorocha, who represents Imo West in the Senate.
At a meeting in Owerri, the members warned that the ugly trend might deal a devastating blow to the party in future.
Convener of the meeting Prince Clems Onyeali said: “We say no to factionalisation of Imo APC. We do not want factions because our strength lies in unity of purpose. Those fanning the embers of discord are merely acting out the script of the opposition, but they will not succeed.”
