The leadership crisis in the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) Tuesday took a new dimension as one of the key actors in the conflict and leader of a faction of the sacked National Executive Committee, Alhaji Sadeeq Massalla, recognised the new interim National Chairman, Mr. Maxi Okwu.
Massala until Tuesday was the Acting National Chairman of APGA appointed by factional NEC, on July 16th, 2012 to battle the leadership of APGA led by Chief Victor Umeh.
The former national Vice Chairman of APGA (North Central) who was conspicuously absent at last Saturday's national caucus of the party in Abuja, where Okwu and Alhaji Sanni Shinkafi were elected as Acting National Chairman and Acting National Secretary, respectively, had Monday denounced the caucus meeting which produced new leaders for the party, describing it illegal and unconstitutional.
Giving reasons for the sudden turn-around, Massala told reporters that he changed his position on the matter after studying the Enugu High Court Judgement and was properly briefed by his lawyers.
Massalla who was accompanied by Maxi Okwu said he has reverted to his former position as the Deputy National Chairman, North of the party.
