The Enugu State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has described as a ruse a statement circulated by the former chairman of the APC in Sen. Eze’s ward purporting to have suspended him.
In a letter to the APC National Chairman, His Excellency, Buni Mai Mala, the APC State Caretaker Chairman, Enugu State, Dr. Ben Nwoye said that Mr. Nwokedi Ugwoke was a one-time chairman of Sen. Eze’s ward, who was not in any position to suspend anybody in the APC.
Dr. Nwoye therefore asked the APC and the general public to ignore Mr. Ugwoke’s mischief, which he said was being investigated by the party with a view to slamming appropriate sanctions on Mr. Ugwoke and his accomplices.
Describing the purported suspension as laughable and of no consequence, Dr. Nwoye accused the former ward officer of working with an unnamed opposition political party to destabilise the APC.
The APC State Chairman said that the party is instead pleased with Sen. Eze, stating that it is the party’s implicit confidence in Sen. Eze that prompted the vote of confidence passed on him by himself, the Igbo-Eze North LGA Chairman, Desmond Ayogu and Sen. Eze’s ward chairman, Nduka Obeta.
It will be recalled that the former chairman had circulated a misleading information, purporting to have suspended Sen. Eze, a development Dr. Nwoye urged the general public to ignore and to view it instead as the antics of a busy body.
