CHAIRMAN, All Progressive Congress (APC) Benue State, Comrade Abba Yaro said the party doors are open to new and former members who left the party for one reason or the other but willing to return.
Comrade Yaro stated this yesterday at the party secretariat when he led other members of the State APC Executive Committee to formally receive the immediate past Speaker of the Benue State House of Assembly, Mr. Terkimbi Ikyange into APC.
He described the former speaker as a valuable asset whose reunion with the party should be celebrated in view of his immeasurable contributions and sacrifices to the party.
The Benue APC chairman also apologised to Mr. Ikyange on behalf of the party for whatever wrong the party might have done him and charged him to join forces with other party faithful to build a strong party.
Also speaking, state party deputy chairman, Kpamor JT Orkar, Zonal Vice Chairman of the Party for Zone A, Barr. Vincent Uji and that of Zone C, Mr. Hassan Mohammed said the coming back of Mr. Ikyange would boost APC political fortunes in Kwande axis.
Responding, Mr. Terkimbi Ikyange regretted the circumstances that led to his leaving the party and appealed to the Executive Committee of the party to look into them in order to boost the chances of the party in the state.
