The petition against Abia State Federal Character Commission nominee, Henry Ogbulogo has been taken back according to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
In a report by Daily Post, the State Chairman, Chief Donatus Nwankpa described the action as a sign that the party is united again and it is for the benefit of the group as a family.
The twenty-two State Executive members of Abia All Progressives Congress did not show up to defend the petition against Henry Ogbulogo and for that reason, the senate assumed the petition has been withdrawn.
“Abia State APC withdrew its opposing interest in the nomination of Hon. Henry Ogbulogo as a member of the Federal Character Commission.
“There was a sort of truce and the nominee is one of our own. We have to sit and dialogue on issues that we are not comfortable with and that is exactly what we did and I can tell you, we have put the matter behind us.” Chief Donatus Nwankpa said.
Daily Post also reported that Henry appeared before Senator Ayo Akinyelure-led committee on Public Petitions and Ethics to defend the petition levied against him by Abia APC on the ground of lopsidedness if Hon. Henry Ogbulogo was accepted and confirmed as a member of FCC, having come from the zone that has produced FCC membership in the past.
