… As Party Stakeholders Ready For Showdown
THE Zonal Vice Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Enugu State, Mr. Emma Eneukwu, has allegedly hijacked materials meant for the congress expected to hold later in the day (Saturday).
This action, according to a source in the party, has created anxiety among many members of the party as it may mar the outcome of the congress which is expected to hold later today.
A member of the party Mr. Agu from Nsukka was quoted as saying that “Mr. Emma Eneukwu is bent on sabotaging the popular will of party members by imposing people allegedly loyal to him.”
Other party faithful have been prevented from obtaining forms for any of the positions available for contest.
Meanwhile, Honorable Minister of Foreign Affairs Mr. Geoffrey Onyeama chaired a stakeholders meeting yesterday with Senator Ken Nnamani, former Senate President and Barrister Juliet Ibekaku Nwagwu, Special Adviser to the President on Justice Reform in attedance, advised Mr Eneukwu and the congress committee led by Mr. Ikye Odikpo to desist from destroying the integrity of APC in Enugu State and in the South East zone.
It was also learnt that the Meeting ended with stakeholders vowing to hold parallel congresses across the wards if the materials are not released and party guidelines are followed strictly.
Recall that that President Muhammadu Buhari had advised the party to follow party Constitution strictly but unfortunately unscrupulous party officials who are desperate on coming back to office without going through credible elections are staging a battle against the President’s directive that due process must be followed.
