Speaking to journalists at the party’s national secretariat in Abuja on Wednesday, Okorocha said the party would have to be restructured to make it stronger.
“You may recall that it was the same NWC that saw us through the elections. If these people were good enough to see us through, they should be honoured. And I want to assure them that no one would bully them out or hush them out but there is need to make amendments where possible which is natural with any human organisation,” he said.
“So, the party will be restructured for the purpose of making it stronger and to move forward as a people and as a party.
“We have noticed that there is so much bitterness among the members and ranks of our party. There is need for communication and dialogue because where there is no deliberation and dialogue, war is inevitable.
“Again, very important, I came to commend the members of the NWC for their understanding, patience and sacrifices they made during the period of election.”
Okorocha said as part of the moves to restore unity, President Muhammadu Buhari would be addressing the party faithful in the weeks ahead.
He advised his party men to take advantage of the crisis in the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)
“Mr President and commander in chief who is the leader of the party would be addressing the party leadership very soon in a couple of weeks to come or before the next two months,” he said.
“From there we would take it up, but our party is united and strong and we must take advantage of the moment especially with the visible crisis in the PDP, many good people in the PDP want to join APC but they are still watching because they have not seen us show that which we are known for before the election and there is no reason why we cannot manage this victory.”
Bola Tinubu, a national leader of the party, and Timi Frank, deputy national publicity secretary, are among those who have called for the resignation of Oyegun.
