Anambra Guber: Save APC from future embarrassment – Enugu Chairman-elect, Ude begs stakeholders
The chairman-elect of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Enugu State, Comrade Adolphus Ude has reacted to the court judgement on the Anambra State guber election which ruled that the party has no candidate.
A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja had in a judgement on Monday held that Senator Andy Uba was not validly nominated as the party’s candidate for the election
In a statement made available to journalists in Enugu Ude said the court’s decision should serve as a wake-up call for the party in the South-East.
While describing the development as embarrassing, he noted that “more of such things may happen in the future if the leaders of the party in the zone did not sit up and take up the responsibility of rebuilding the party.”
The Enugu chairman-elect said it was said that a ruling at the national level could end up with such a disastrous outing in a governorship election “owing to error of a few people who do not want the right thing to be done.”
He called on all the leaders of the party in the zone “to as a matter of urgency convene a peace rally where all agitating issues shall be resolved.
“This is not to be left for the governors on the platform of the party in the zone or the national working committee. The stakeholders in each of the five states should meet urgently and find a lasting solution to the crisis plaguing the APC in the South-East zone.
“I urge them not to sit down and watch the party drift further ahead of the 2023 elections. If swift measures are not taken, what awaits the party in future elections may be worse than the Anambra experience.
“We have the likes of Emperor Baywood Ibe, Mr. Osita Okechukwu, Dr. Ben Nwoye, Sen. Chris Ngige, George Moghalu, Sen. Ucha, Ogbonnia Onu, Osita Izunaso, and a host of others should team up and resolve this imbroglio,” Ude advised.
He commended the efforts of State’s Chairmen Forum, which gas Dr Ben Nwoye as Secretary, for repositioning the party.
