No APC State Congress took place in Enugu – Group Capt. Orji


APC Enugu consensus candidate for the position of State Chairman, Group Capt Joe Orji has rejected the APC State Congress which purportedly took place on Saturday.
The former Gombe State Governor was adopted on Friday at a meeting of the Three zones of Enugu North, Enugu East and Enugu West chaired by the Caretaker Vice Chairman South East and former President of the Senate, Senator Ken Nnamani.

Group Captain Orji in a letter of protest addressed to the National Caretaker Chairman of APC Governor Mai Mala Buni, said that the Congress Committee led by its chairman Dr Ijomah refused to publish a list of delegates to the Congress, intentionally refused to advertise the venue of the Congress and also refused the accreditation of APC delegates that emerged at the Ward and Local Government Congresses in breach of the APC constitution.

He stated that no Congress took place in the state and accused the Congress Committee of coming to Enugu State with a pre-ordained outcome dictated by their pay masters outside the State.

The consensus candidate in the petition said “it is unconstitutional to allow a candidate that is not a registered member of the party to stand for election to the high office of State Chairman.

“That by these constitutional infringements, the Dr Ijomah led Congress Committee for Enugu State has disenfranchised Hundreds of party faithfuls”.

He wondered why “If consensus is allowed to prevail in Imo State APC State Congress, why was it rejected by the Congress Committee in Enugu?”

Orji called on the National leadership of the party to intervene and ensure that the fraud perpetrated by the Dr Ijomah led Congress Committee does not stand.
He said that allowing what he called “Political brigandage” to prevail after years of crisis in Enugu State will put the final nail on the coffin of APC in the State.

“I appeal to you, to use your good offices to redress this flagrant abuse of democracy in the APC and save the party in Enugu State”.

He also called on Senator Ken Nnamani who midwifed the consensus agreement and other major stakeholders to speak out.
