The dissolved BoT had Anambra State Governor, Chief Willie Obiano as chairman.

National Secretary of APGA, Labaran Maku, who read out the resolution, said the decision was reached during the party’s National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting in Awka, following the expiration of the four year term of the Board.

The new BoT members were to be nominated ahead of its national convention for ratification.

The NEC resolution also ratified the party’s national convention to be held in Awka, on May 31.

NEC fixed ward and lo- cal government congresses to hold on May 19 and 21 respectively, while state and zonal congresses would hold on May 23.

It was also resolved that the party retained its earlier zoning formula for the distribution of national offices, while members who took the party to court without exhausting internal mechanisms were expelled.

Addressing the NEC earlier, Governor Obiano pledged the readiness of the party’s National Assembly members-elect to support the Federal Government in achieving its development agenda. National Chairman of party, Chief Victor Oye commended the members for their zeal to transform the party, and party faithful to ensure that the forthcoming congresses and national convention were successful.
