Enugu APC To Review Suspension, Expulsion Of Prominent Members, Emphasises Need For Unity

APC’s Enugu chapter says suspensions and expulsions will be reviewed based on the members’ “sincere repentance.”

All Progressives Congress (APC) Stakeholders in Enugu State have announced plans to reintegrate members of the party, who were previously suspended or expelled.

Enugu APC had shortly after the 2023 general election suspended and or expelled some prominent members of the party over alleged anti-party activities.

Among those either expelled or suspended were former Senate President Ken Nnamani, former Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama; former Governor of the State, Sullivan Chime and former Speaker of the State Assembly.

Others were Eugene Odoh, former Director General of Voice of Nigeria (VON), Mr. Osita Okechukwu; former state party chairman, Ben Nwoye; and recently, the member representing Enugu State in the Federal Character Commission (FCC), Mrs Ginika Tor.

However, in a communique released at the end of their meeting on Sunday and read by the party’s state secretary, Robert Ngwu, the stakeholders said the review of the suspension or expulsion of any member would be “contingent on sincere repentance and abandonment of sabotage instincts, fifth columnism, anti-party acts, and all divisive actions.”

They noted that the decision to review was informed by the need to further rebuild the party because politics was a game of numbers and everyone was important to achieve success.

The stakeholders unanimously passed a vote of confidence on the State Executive Committee (SEC) led by the State Chairman of the APC, Ugochukwu Agballah and the leader of the Party in the state, Minister of Innovation, Science and Technology, Uchenna Nnaji.

“Their leadership was credited for the strategic enhancement of the party’s position within the state,” the statement stated, adding that the meeting served as a platform to reaffirm that the party at the state level is united with no factional divisions.
