The Enugu State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has expressed displeasure over the re-appointment of former Minister for Foreign Affairs, Mr. Geoffrey Onyeama, by President Muhammadu Buhari, describing the development as a “terrible mistake”.

It said going by Onyeama’s alleged abysmal performance during the president’s first tenure in office, such “character ought not to have any business in the next level second-term agenda of the APC led federal executive council.

Reacting Tuesday to the reappointment of Onyeama, whose name was among the 42 ministerial nominees sent to the Senate by President Buhari, for possible confirmation, Enugu state APC chairman, Dr. Ben Nwoye, said the development was not for the interest of Enugu state and Nigeria in general.

He posited that the ex-foreign Affairs Minister did more harm than good to APC in Enugu state during his first outing as a minister, stressing that he never believed in party supremacy

According to Nwoye, rather, than joining hands with the leadership of APC in the state to ensure the progress of the party, Onyeama, “was busy wasting taxpayers money in sponsoring crisis and sowing seed of discord.

The chairman, insisted that reappointing the former minister into the federal executive council would further destroy the party in Enugu state, because” this is a man who has a penchant for thuggery and pulling down of party structure.

He said aside Enugu state, Nigerians in diaspora, never felt the impact of Oyeama’s office for the four years he occupied the foreign Affair’s ministry seat, adding that Nigerians were slaughtered almost on daily basis in parts of the world, without any comment or reaction from his office.

Nwoye, also called on the Upper Chamber of the nation’s National Assembly (Senate), to carry out a proper investigation on the allegation of tax evasion by Onyeama, saying, he lied on oath during his screening by the 8th Senate. (The Nation)
