The leadership of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Enugu State on Tuesday expelled the Deputy Chairman of the party, Mr. Adolphus Udeh.

News Express recalls that the crisis rocking the APC worsened on Monday as some members of the State Working Committee, led by the Deputy Chairman, Mr. Adolphus Udeh, held an emergency meeting where they announced the suspension of the State Chairman, Barr. Ben Nwoye, from the party.

But in a counter move, he (Nwoye) convened a meeting of the State Executive Committee, SEC, where far reaching decisions were taken.

In the 10-point resolution after the meeting, the SEC announced the suspension of the factional chairman, Mr. Udeh.

They resolved as follows: “That we have passed a vote of confidence on the State Chairman, Dr. Ben Nwoye;

“That based on the report of the fact-finding/disciplinary committee set up to investigate the allegation against the Deputy Chairman of the party, Mr. Adolphus Udeh, the said Deputy Chairman stands expelled from the party with effect from today, 4th, 2017;

“That the State Executive Committee in its entirety condemned the barbaric, criminal and anti-party activities of undesirable elements in the party for having invaded the party office and announced the removal of the State Party Chairman in a coup d’etat fashion and carted away vital party documents, including financial records on Monday 3rd July, 2017;

“That the State Executive Committee hereby resolved to setup a disciplinary committee to recommend appropriate sanction to be meted out on the above listed individuals in accordance with our party Constitution.”

While accusing Ibekaku of funding the crisis owing to her Senatorial ambition, the party declared that it gathered from a dependable source that “the virus in the party was introduced and nurtured by Barr. Mrs. Juliet Ibekaku, Senior Special Assistant to the President attached to the Minister for Justice and Attorney General of the Federation;

“That the State Executive Committee hereby condemns the attitude of Mrs. Ibekaku in the party by funding the destabilisation of the party structure to suit her selfish political aspirations.”
