Ugwuanyi, Temporary Tenant At Enugu State House –APCFeatured, Latest News, News Monday, August 10th, 2015
By Ignatius Okpara, Enugu – The Enugu state chapter of the ruling All Progressive Congress, (APC) has expressed optimism that it will reclaim its alleged stolen mandate from Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
State Chairman of the party, Dr. Ben Nwoye, stated this Sunday while speaking with newsmen at the end of APC stakeholders meeting in Enugu.
Dr. Nwoye, who was joined in the briefing by members of the State Executive working Committee of the party, insisted that the Independent National Electoral Commission, (INEC) erred in declaring Governor Ugwuanyi, of the PDP winner of the April 11 gubernatorial poll.
Said Nwoye: “as far as the Enugu state APC is concerned, Governor Ifeanyi Ugwanyi, of the Peoples Democratic Party PDP is enjoying a stolen mandate and that makes him a temporary tenant at the government house.
He stressed that his party’s hope of reclaiming the mandate was also hinged on the fact that the election was heavily marred by irregularities, as well as availability of overwhelming evidence against Uwguanyi’s declaration by INEC.
The Chairman said APC in the state was already repositioning itself ahead of her expected victory, adding that “those saying that we are in crisis are only making a big mistake.
“You can see that all members of the state (EXCO) are here, including all the stakeholders in our party.
“Hope you saw our National Vice chairman, South East, Hon. Emma Enukwu, our gubernatorial candidate, Okey Ezea is here, among all other stakeholders”
“So, we want to use this medium to dispel the speculation in some quarters, that APC in Enugu state is in crisis, we are not in crisis, we are one united big family”
On the forthcoming Local government polls in the state, Nwoye, said APC would be more disposed to Caretaker committee arrangement, rather than involving itself in a sham called election, when the time comes.
