Aggrieved members of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Enugu State, on Thursday, stormed the South-East zonal office of the party protesting the non-invitation of some stakeholders to the party’s meeting.
InfoStride News reports that the meeting was attended by selected chieftains of the party from the five South-East States.
However, the Enugu State Caretaker Committee Chairman of the party, Dr. Ben Nwoye and other Chieftains of the party were not invited to the meeting.
Those not invited include the Director General of Voice of Nigeria, Mr. Osita Okechukwu, a major financier of APC, Emperor Baywood Ibe, Enugu state Governorship flag bearer of the party in 2015, Chief Okey Ezea, among others.
Irked by the development, some of the party members stormed the meeting venue accusing a former Senate President and a chieftain of the party in the State,Chief Ken Nnamani of factionalizing the APC in Enugu State.
Nnamani, who is the representative of the South-East in the APC National Caretaker Committee is currently Mr. Chikwado Chukwunta as Enugu State caretaker committee chairman of the party.
Some of the placards displayed by the protesters read: “Ben Nwoye is the only authentic state caretaker committee chairman we have”, “Ken Nnamani leave Enugu APC alone”, Ken Nnamani 25 percent negotiator go back to PDP”, “Ken Nnamani, a PDP in the night, APC in the day.”
The protesters vowed to take their complaints against Ken Nnamani to the highest authority of the party, alleging that he had done more harm to the party in Enugu State than good.
