We’ll resist attempts to make APC an arm of PDP in Enugu, says Nwoye
The Caretaker Committee Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Enugu State, Dr. Ben Nwoye, yesterday, vowed that the alleged scheming to turn the state chapter into “an arm of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP),” by some members, who recently joined the party, would be resisted.
He stated that the party was challenged by the new comers attempt to derail democratic process, assuring that the current nagging issues facing APC would soon be a thing of the past.
Addressing party members who stormed the Akanu Ibiam International Airport, Enugu to welcome him, Nwoye expressed confidence that the “foundation members” of the APC will continue to maintain the ethos that had made the party tick in the state.
He said: “Those who left the PDP and we welcomed them in APC have continued to throw tantrums to disorganise the party. They held a meeting on Thursday, without the founding fathers of APC in Enugu State. I wish to state that they cannot transform APC Enugu State to PDP Enugu State.
Their badges are badges of ‘formers,’ you have former this and former that. So, I wish to tell them to play according to the rules and work for the progress of APC. There is no way they can chase away the owners of the house and occupy. They cannot occupy the APC we allowed them into.”
Nwoye, who attended the APC Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) meeting at Abuja, as the authentic caretaker committee chairman in the state, maintained that “those who have made Southeast secretariat the state secretariat of APC in Enugu will soon find out that the Enugu State secretariat of the party is at 126, Park Avenue, GRA Enugu.”
He described as “Nollywood show of shame” the purported meeting held at the Southeast Zonal office on Thursday, stressing that the gathering failed on arrival.
“They have done that before. They had once upon a time invented an Okey Ogbodo and today we say, where’s Okey Ogbodo?
“They have invented another small… and they have written a small script for him to act and unfortunately, he couldn’t deliver. He couldn’t find language because he’s phony, because he’s not the chairman of APC Enugu…”
