A gubernatorial aspirant in Anambra State under the platform of the United Progressive Party (UPP), Chudi Offodile, has accused the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party of “acting beyond its powers.”

The State Working Committee (SEC) of the party, led by Dr. Sylvester Igweilo, had on  August 15 suspended two  of its governorship aspirants, Offodile and a former Minister of Aviation, Osita Chidoka, for  alleged anti-party activities.

Briefing reporters in Awka, Offodile described his suspension as “undemocratic, and not in the interest of the party, particularly few days to the  primary election.”

He also described as false, the allegation against him by the state chapter of paying some money into the account of  the national chairman.

“If the action of the state chapter was curious, equally curious was the reaction of the national headquarters. Why dissolve the state Exco committee four days to the primary election in which the state executive committee has crucial roles to play?” he asked.

Meanwhile, the National Publicity Secretary of UPP, Chief Ogbuehi Dike, said the two governorship aspirants of the party had been cleared for the primary.

He said no delegate list was doctored as alleged by the dissolved state executive, adding that the list that had been uploaded in UPP’s website  remained the authentic one that would be used for tomorrow’s primary election.
