Suspension: Ex-Enugu APC Chairman, Nwoye Applauds Statement By Party’s National Leadership

(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Immediate past Chairman of the All progressive Congress APC in Enugu State, Dr. Ben Nwoye, has applauded  the recent statement by the national leadership of the party, cautioning state chapters, against incessant and  arbitrary suspension and expulsion of members.  

Nwoye, a  serving Federal Commissioner representing South East in the Federal competition and Consumer Protection Commission, FCCPC described the position of the national leadership of Nigeria’s ruling party as a “good development”.

 Speaking with Newsmen yesterday shortly after paying a  Condolence visit on Former Senate president, Senator Ken Nnamani, at his Amechi Country home in Enugu South Council area over the recent Demise of his wife, Mrs. Jane Nnamani, the Ex- Enugu APC boss, maintained that such action by States, including Enugu, remains  counter producing to the party. 

“The caution by the national leadership of our great party is  a good development, but I still maintained that the issue of the so called ratification of Purported suspension of big wigs of APC in South East by some people is illegal, because there is no such thing like ratification in our constitution, which is the law guiding our operation”

Recalled that the South East APC led by the  National Vice Chairman, Dr. Ijeomah Arodiogu, had recently announced the ratification of suspension and expulsion of some key members of the party in Enugu and Abia states, including former Senate president, Ken Nnamani, Senator Orji Uzo Kalu, Dr. Ben Nwoye, Minister of Foreign Affairs,, Geoffery Onyeama former governor of Enugu state, Barr. Sullivan Chime, Directed General of Voice of Nigeria, Osita  Okechukwu,, former Enugu state House of Assembly Speaker Eugene Odo, amongst others 

Nwoye,  said it’s unfortunate that the same people who allegedly worked against the victory of APC in South East are the same  people who are now tarnishing the image of the true progressive in the region.

“The anti APC agents who worked for  the PDP and Labour party LP, during general elections, are same people constituting illegal panel to suspend and expel the real progressives in the zone”

“They  just woke up one morning, converged in Owerri, Imo state to announce the suspension and expulsion of key members of the APC, without  charges against them, or right to be heard.

Nwoye, insisted that “suspension is not done in a Court of public opinion. You must 

give  the person a fair hearing, and the person must be entitled to an appeal” he pointed out.

“These people doing this in South East are paid agents of Labour and PDP.  They are job seekers who wants to reap where they did not sow .Their plan is to destabilize our party in South East.

“Same people announcing suspension and expulsion of key members in South East are people who worked against the president elect, Senator Ahmed Bola Tinubu during the primary and  main elections. 

However,  the National Working Committee NWC of the party through the  publicity Secretary,  Barrister Felix Morka, had recently  in a statement noted “with deep concern the spate of disciplinary actions emanating from various state chapters, including suspension and expulsion, of party members for alleged infractions in the wake of the just concluded national elections”.

According to Morka, the party takes the matter of discipline of its members seriously as a necessary mechanism for the maintenance of a strong, vibrant and cohesive party at all levels.

The statement posited that the decision is in contravention of Article 21(B) of the APC Constitution which provides that the executive committees at all levels shall have original jurisdiction  the heat and determine any complaint brought before them against any member or public official.

“However, this is a highly inauspicious time for these actions, as meritorious as they may be, given the important upcoming leadership transition and inauguration of our new government.

“The Party hereby directs that action be stayed on all disciplinary matters pending further directives of the National Working Committee on the effective review and treatment of disciplinary matters”
