The crisis rocking the Enugu State chapter of the APC has taken another dimension as some aggrieved members of the party have called for the head of the acting chairman in the state.
The aggrieved members are of the view that the suspension of Dr. Ben Nwoye on July 3 followed all constitutional provisions of the party, saying he was suspended because of alleged embezzlement of party funds, anti-party activities and high-handedness.
Addressing journalists in Abuja, the spokesman of the group, Nnadozie Valentine, who was the gubernatorial candidate of the defunct Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) in 2011, called for the intervention of the APC headquarters in the crisis.
He said Dr. Nwoye knew the constitutional channels to appeal against his suspension if he felt the action taken was unlawful.
“Instead of doing that, he is just harassing and intimidating people in Enugu; he refused to honour invitation by the committee set up by the party in Abuja to answer questions about how he was running the party,” he said.
He, therefore, called on the National Chairman of the party, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, to intervene in the ongoing crisis to avoid total collapse of the party in the state.
