Enugu APC not prepared for election Agballah must go – Nnamani Chime others insist
The last is yet to be heard on the crisis rocking the Enugu State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
This time, major stakeholders of the APC in the State have declared that the party is not ready for the 2023 general elections in the State.
DAILY POST reports that the crisis in the party took a turn for the worse, with major stakeholders demanding the removal of Barr. Ugochukwu Agballah as the State Chairman.
Arising from a stakeholders meeting on Sunday in Enugu, the party chieftains reiterated their resolve to institute a caretaker committee to oversee the activities of the party leading to the elections.
Former Senate President, Sen. Ken Nnamani, said that the party did not seem attractive to prospective members due to Agballah’s leadership style.
Nnamani said that the party chairman had neglected party stalwarts and was through his conducts leading the party to a disastrous end.
“We feel the party is not going the way it should go. There is danger ahead as people are leaving our party.
“For only one person to contest our party’s gubernatorial primaries shows we are not attractive and most of our flag bearers are those most unlikely to win elections.
“Candidates of other parties have been coming to us to appeal for our support but ours are not coming,” he said.
Nnamani said that the chieftains would do everything possible to rescue the party and save it from implosion, adding that a fractured party would not do well in elections.
Also, former State governor, Barr. Sullivan Chime, described Agballa as an impostor bent on destroying the party in the State.
Chime said that he never supported the candidacy of Agballah as party chairman due to his antecedents.
According to him, “it is strange that I do not know any candidate from House of Assembly to Senate from my constituency and zone.
“I do not know who our candidates are. For the governorship candidate, I am hearing it as a rumour, though it happens to be the person I knew from a distance.”
“The last time I saw him was during Gov. Chimaroke Nnamani’s administration. I have not seen him since he emerged,” he said.
The former governor said that election was about electing those that would be useful to the party and the people.
