Kachikwu faults Nwosu over plot to strip him of presidential ticket
The Presidential Candidate of the African Democratic Congress (ADC) Mr Dumebi Kachikwu has faulted the move by the national chairman of the party, Chief Ralph Nwosu to strip him of his presidential ticket ahead of the 2023 poll.
Kachikwu in a terse statement contended that the move was in breach of laid down rules and regulations of the party.
Kachikwu advised members of the public to discountenance any statements emanating from Nwosu who he described as ‘the discredited former chairman” of the party.
Kachikwu was reacting to what he termed “an illegal convention conducted by the former chairman which purportedly granted him a fresh tenure of office after holding the same position for seventeen years”.
He wondered how someone who only recently claimed he was granted a one-year extension by a special convention at the end of August could now conduct another special convention in October for the same purpose.
According to Kachikwu, it is clear Nwosu enjoys conducting conventions having done so for the last seventeen years.
He further stated that Senator Patricia Akwashiki led ADC would soon hold a convention to usher in a new set of executives who would lead the party to victory in the forthcoming 2023 general elections.
