Mass expulsions looms as APC goes tough on litigants

The All Progressives Congress, APC, is set to weed out members who insisted on going ahead with litigations despite entreaties without first exhausting its internal conflict resolution mechanisms over the results of the ward congresses across the country.

A top official of the party who confided in reporters in Abuja on Monday said, “We have moved from the point of issuing threats to taking action.


“At the national level we are compiling a list of such persons and the cases. State chapters have been empowered to take the necessary action and make recommendations which we will ratify based on the APC constitution.”


Crisis in Enugu worsens


This was even as party leaders in the Enugu State are locked in a war of attrition. Former Senate President, Chief Ken Nnamani is said to be leading a war against the state Caretaker Chairman of the party, Dr Ben Nwoye, alongside the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, Gen J.O.J Okolagu and former Speaker of the Enugu State House of Assembly, Eugene Odo, among other members of his group. The faction organised parallel congresses and elected their own candidates during the September 4, 2021, Local Government congresses across the country.


Okoloagu, member of the yet to be inaugurated APC Board of Trustees, however, on Monday dismissed his purported expulsion from the party by the state Caretaker Chairman, Ben Nwoye, describing it as a huge joke.
