2019: APC queries party chieftain for allegedly supporting PDP


….The party accused Nnamani of campaigning for the PDP’s candidates instead of his party’s

….The state chairman of the party warned Nnamani that the party will not hesitate to commence disciplinary action against him if he does not stop the anti-party utterances and activities

The Enugu state chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Dr Ben Nwoye, has challenged one of the leaders of the party in the state, Senator Ken Nnamani to clarify a statement he made while commissioning a four-room building with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi.

Dr Nwoye asked Senator Nnamani to explain why he could not campaign openly for his party’s governorship candidate but was telling the PDP governorship candidate that “a good product markets itself” and promised that when the time comes he will say where his “people belong”.

“This is very misleading. Could it be that Sen. Nnamani is so ashamed of his political party that he could not canvass openly for the party?”, Dr. Nwoye wondered.

The party chairman said the APC in Enugu state had observed Senator Nnamani’s double standard for far too long, adding that the party can no longer fold its arms and watch him de-market the APC in Enugu state.

“We deplore this attitude of being APC in Abuja and PDP in Enugu state,” the chairman said.

He queried further: “How can the vice chairman South APC Presidential Campaign Council feel more comfortable in the midst of candidates of the PDP than amongst APC candidates almost on the eve of an election?”

Dr Nwoye said that Senator Nnamani was surrounded at that event by candidates of the opposition PDP for various offices, and wondered what signal he was sending to APC teaming supporters in Enugu state.

“This is a man who has just been unveiled as the vice chairman of the APC Presidential Campaign Council romancing and hobnobbing with the opposition party and making insinuations that his people would vote for the opposition,” the party chieftain noted.

“It is these same people that go to Abuja to mislead the authorities that the PDP governor in Enugu state is working for Buhari. Nothing can be farther from the truth. How can the PDP governor work for Buhari when he is still busy campaigning for PDP presidential and National Assembly candidates?,” Dr Nwoye added.

He said that APC is very strong in Enugu state and the southeast zone and urged the authorities in Abuja to ignore the self-serving misinformation being propagated by PDP apologists like Senator Nnamani who market the story that the APC needs some help from PDP in the southeast in order to re-elect Buhari.

“How can people who are so scared of their impending loss of election be the same people being touted to help the APC? We want to say it loud and clear that the APC will sweep the polls in Enugu state. We don’t need anybody to help us. Buhari will score over 90% of the votes that will be cast in the southeast,” he said.

He warned Senator Nnamani that the party will not hesitate to commence disciplinary action against him should he persist in his anti-party utterances and activities, urging him to retrace his steps forthwith.

“Sen. Nnamani has a choice to make: to remain in the APC or to return to the PDP where it seems he feels more comfortable. He can’t belong to both parties at the same time,” Dr Nwoye noted.

Meanwhile, Leakblast.com previously reported that the leaders of the southeast zonal caucus of the APC on Sunday, December 30, met in Uburu the country home of the minister of science and technology, Ogbonnaya Onu, with a view to re-strategising for the re-election of President Buhari in 2019.

Speaking at the meeting, the convener, Onu, who is the leader of the caucus, urged the people of the southeast to work assiduously to make sure President Buhari get more votes in the forthcoming general elections.

Leakblast.com gathered that Onu told his people to understand that the votes in the southeast and support for President Buhari would to an extent determine how far they could realise their clamour for a Nigerian president of Igbo extraction.
