He asked party members to avoid  makeing distinctions between old and new members.
In his words: "Let no one go about creating divisions in our ranks. Already we have seen that the APC has taken over in Ikwo LGA and we no longer have opposition, but we must remain focused and resolute and continue to  welcome new  members who are formally  joining APC.  We must endeavour to work together and reap the fruits of our labour together. His Excellency our governor will soon begin the appointment of liaison officers and there will be no demarcation between old and new.

"The message I bring to you from the leader of our great party in Ebonyi State, the Governor of Ebonyi State, Engr Chief David Nweze Umahi, FNSE, FNATE, CON and his deputy Barr. (Chief)  Eric Kelechi Igwe, PhD is that our party remains strong and in control. All you need to do is to continue to key into all the policies and programmes of the State.
