Enugu APC Stakeholders Pass No Confidence Vote On State Chairman, Agballa

A vote of no confidence in Barr Ugochukwu Agballah, the party’s chairman, was passed by a number of stakeholders on Friday, worsening the crisis engulfing the APC branch in Enugu State.


The party leaders expressed their sadness at the way Agballah has been running the party’s operations since taking office.


At a unification meeting in Enugu, the stakeholders—consisting of the state’s founding party members—praised President Ahmed Bola Tinubu, the party’s national chairman, Alhaji Abdullahi Ganduje, and Chief Mrs. Ginika Tor, the commissioner for Enugu State on the Federal Character Commission (FCC) for their dedication to furthering the party’s goals.


Participants in the conference, which had as its theme “uniting the party in support of Tinubu/Shettima renewed Hope Agenda,” reminisced about how Agballah’s unconstitutionally suspended members fostered the party to a point of attraction.


The Agballah-led administration, according to the stakeholders, has destroyed the political structure instead of leading the party to greater heights. This has happened through the unconstitutional suspension of key figures in the party’s history, including former Senate President Ken Nnamani, former governor Sullivan Chime, former state chairman Dr. Ben Nwoye, former Voice of Nigeria director general Osita Okechukwu, former speaker of the Enugu State Assembly Eugene Odoh, and most recently Tor.

Addressing the stakeholders, convener of the meeting, Tor, expressed displeasure that Agballah has run the party aground, chasing away the genuine key stakeholders. She described Enugu APC under Agballah “as a suspension party”, saying that they would no longer fold their arms and watch strangers who joined their fold from other political parties destroy the APC through illegal suspension and other anti-members’ activities.


For the benefit of President Tinubu and the APC-led Federal Government, Tor insisted that it was past time for all the alleged suspended stakeholders to return and rebuild their homes.


She said: “We must come back to possess our possession. We must not be discouraged by the activities of those currently piloting the affairs of the party who do not wish the party well, we must say enough is enough.


“How could somebody who claims he wishes the party well keep suspending people who laboured for the party?”


Dr. Ben Nwoye, the meeting’s moderator and the party’s immediate past chairman, made the statement that it was unimaginable for anyone to declare the suspension of so many prominent members of a political party.


He called on the true party members to return and restore their political house, denouncing in its full the notion that the current chairman is running the party’s business as a private venture.


Nwoye pointed out that the vote of no confidence indicated that problems inside the party in the state existed, and that the national secretariat urgently needed to step in to turn things around.


He bemoaned the fact that the formerly jealous APC was now a laughingstock.


Among the other speakers who voiced concerns were the state chairman of the APC, Hon. Ifeanyichukwu Edeh, who was the party’s pioneering organizing secretary, and Dr. Oby Ajih, who is running for the House of Representatives in the 2023 general election as the candidate for the Igbo-Eze North/Udenu Federal Constituency.
