Rising from the expanded meeting of the Enugu state caucus of the All Progressives Congress APC on Sunday, stakeholders of the party called on the National Working Committee, NWC to setup a Caretaker committee that would  manage the affairs of the state chapter.
This followed several failed attempts by the state APC leaders to resolve the intra-party crisis that created serious division in the party since the past seven years.
The stakeholders expressed
concern over the existence of two factions in the state chapter, which, they said, had seriously impeded the progress of the party in the state.
The meeting which invitation was sent by the factional chairman, Dr Ben Nwoye was presided over by the state leader of the party and Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama.
Although Nwoye backed out of the meeting at the dying minutes, stakeholders of the party including another factional chairman, Chief Okey Ogbodo, General Chris Ugwu (rtd), Group Captain Joe Oji, Professor Austin Akubue, and four former governorship aspirants were in attendance.
Earlier while addressing the stakeholders, Onyeama said he convened the meeting to bring them together to seek ways of resolving the lingering crisis in the party.
He said he was surprised that Nwoye who sent the invitation for the meeting was absent. 
All speakers at the meeting were of the opinion that the only way out of the factional crisis was to disolve both Nwoye and Ogbodo factions to pave the way for a neutral body to lead the party.
They lamented that some persons laying claim to the top party leadership positions in the state "are APC members in the day and PDP members at night", a situation they said, has seriously hindered the progress of the party in the state.
They maintained that since both factions have refused to step down, the only viable option left was to disolve them and set up a Caretaker committee.
However at the end of the meeting, Foreign Affairs Minister, Onyeama thanked all the stakeholders for being open minded in profferring solution to the crisis.
He said that the consensus was that a Caretaker committee be set up to pilot the affairs of the party, adding that the resolution of the caucus meeting would be  forwarded to the National Leadership of the party.
Copy of the resolution, which was not ready by press time, Onyeama said, would be endorsed   by various stakeholders present at the meeting, adding that it would convey the position of the state party stakeholders to the appropriate quarters.
