Nwoye Calls For Calm Over Protest Against Ex- Senate President, Nnamani By APC Stakeholders






(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Against the backdrop of protest against Ex- Senate President, Chief Ken Nnamani, by some Stakeholders of the All progressive Congress in Enugu states, Dr. Ben Nwoye, the state Caretaker Committee Chairman, has call for calm.

The concerned members of the party had in a statement kicked against a Stakeholders meeting convened by  Nnamani scheduled to hold on the 31st of May 2021, saying he lacks the constitutional power to convene such gathering.

The group which issued the statement under a platform it termed APC Leaders’ Forum, insisted that  the former Senate boss, does not have the legal right as far as the party constitution is concerned to convene such meeting.

They  however, advised leaders of APC  in the State to shun the meeting, in the interest of peace.

According to the group, the party leaders in the state  should  avoid  any action capable of destroying  the relative peace currently being enjoyed by the party in the state, particularly  those acts that are detrimental to the party’s Constitution.

African Examiner reports that the statement  was  signed by Prof. Ekwe Xistus.

The Stakeholders expressed worry that more troubles were brewing in the state Chapter of the the party should the leaders  refrain from calling unconstitutional meetings with resolutions that are tantamount to nullity.

However, speaking to newsmen on Thursday in Enugu,  on the development,  Dr. Nwoye appealed to all the concerned stakeholders to be calm, urging them to apply dialogue rather than confrontation in resolving any issue.

According the Chairman, as a top leader of the party, Nnamani, could convene such gathering in any state of Southeast Nigeria.

The State Chairman therefore, call  for calm, insisting that the use of dialogue to resolve issues remains the best,  rather than engaging in confrontation which is always counter- productive, and capable of launching the party into another round of crisis.



Dr. Nwoye said: “I am not pleased that the group went to the media on this issue.

 “Whatever the issue may be, they should have reached out to our leader, Chief Ken Nnamani.

“They ought to know better that dialogue remains the best way to resolve issues than being confrontational.

“Let’s not add to the self-inflicted injury we are still recovering from In 2017, disharmony paved the way for APC in Enugu State to be denied entrance at the national convention.

“Chief Ken Nnamani, who is the leader of the party in the Southeast, has the right to call stakeholders meeting be it in Ebonyi, Abia, Imo, Anambra and Enugu States, so it is not anything to worry about.

The Chairman, posited that  if the Forum felt excluded, they should “reach out to Chief Ken Nnamani, he is accessible. He will listen to them. So, I plead with them to be calm.”

“I call for peace, everyone should support peace, don’t support Ben Nwoye, support APC, a party that can win election, support unity of APC, support unity of purpose,” he advised.

Dr. Nwoye, said: ” I  think what should be paramount in the mind of every APC member in Enugu state  now is to be thinking of how we are going to win the 2023 elections, and not engaging in crisis.
