The State congress of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) held nationwide on Saturday 16th October 2021 had led to embarrassment to the leadership of the party as many states witnessed parallel congress where two or more emerges as the State Chairman.
In Enugu State, the situation is not different from what took place in other States except from shooting, fighting, and attack by Political thugs such as Ogun where heavy gunshots took place.
In a nutshell, Africa Security Investigation News gathered that before the Enugu State Congress, the State had 4 factions created by Mr. Ben Nwoye (State Caretaker Committee Chairman, Senator Ken Nnamani, Sullivan Chime, and Geoffrey Onyeama).
It was also gathered that Senator Ken Nnamani who is acrimonious about the emergence of Ugo Agballa as the Chairman in a parallel congress was embarrassed and harrassed while Geoffrey Onyeama celebrates the illegal congress of an hour that produced Ugo Agballa
“When it was time for their Congress, seeing divergent interest, the Venue was not disclosed.
Ken as well as others, thought he was in charge but is always opposed by others because he is hobnobbing with PDP and seen as a core Blooded PDP
According to our investigation, on identifying the Secret Venue chosen by Ugo Agballa and co, Nelson M A(mama) was alleged to have Mobilised thugs to scatter it; only to hear Ugo being declared winner” says an undisclosed party Executive.
In another development, the Ben Nwoye led faction had Dr. Charles Chukwu leading by countless numbers of votes in the open space of the Party’s secretariat until a police officer and a lady arranged by Dr. Ben Nwoye snatched the ballot papers from Mr. Chinedu Oha the agent of Dr. Charles Chukwu which prompted disagreement, crisis, and inconclusive.
Retrospectively, the current situation of APC in Enugu State was predicted following an independent assessment carried by APC-Progressive Minded Group (APC-PMG) few days before the congress.
The Stakeholders and party faithfuls are astonished and disappointed with Mr. Ben Nwoye for making all effort to imposed his PDP arrangement Candidate Comr A. C Ude as the Chairman while they also await the decision of the leadership of the party from the National.
