The Anambra State chapter of the All Progressive Congress (APC) has distanced itself from a purported party Congress in the state.
The party said no ward congresses of the party has been scheduled for January 15, 2022 by our party.
In a statement signed by the State Publicity Secretary, Okelo Madukaife, the party explained that no date has been fixed for the Congress by the National Secretariat.
It said the party leadership would only do so after necessary consultations.
The statement reads, “This is to put our membership on notice that some mischief makers are on the prowl, confusing those who willingly submit to their misinformation.
“For the avoidance of doubt, no ward congresses of APC has been scheduled for January 15,2022 by our party.
“Similarly none was scheduled for January 08,2022 and as contained in our last public statement, certainly none was fixed on January 03,2022 or any other date.
“These dates are the product of 419 from persons working to destabilize our dynamic chapter , with the support of persons outside Anambra State for partisan interests connected to 2023 presidential elections.
“Those interests belong to the category of Ndi Elilu Eli, as time will prove shortly.
“Again the National Secretariat of our great party has not fixed any dates for congreses, and would not do so without necessary consultations.
“Please be further reassured that only authentic congress dates will be announced by this office and shall be a reliable guide, as provided by the National Secretariat
“We seize this opportunity to reaffirm that the LG Party Chairman for Nnewi South LGA remains Mr. Linus Eze, while the only Acting Chairman at LG Level is Okwudili Ezenwamma, who being Deputy Chairman who constitutionally succeeded Mr. PaulChuks Umenduka in Aguata Local Government.
“Amy directives outside the mentioned officers is ultravires, of no effect and should be ignored.
“Party members will be well-advised to be wary of constititionally sacked persons from high offices, intent on going down with everyone and their backers who are watering the fruit of discontent in our great party.”
