Enugu 2019: Nnamani not to Blame for APC’s woes

Ken Nnamani rather than subsiding, the spate of crises rocking the All Progressives Congress (APC) Enugu chapter has continuing to fester, as elections draw nearer. it’s to try and do with the way its candidates emerged. They came from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), wherever they’d become less-traveled and lost out, solely to cross to the APC, wherever they hijacked the party from the muse members. mistreatment the factional state exco-led by Dr. Ben Nwoye, it’s obvious that there would be a lot of troubles within the party within the days ahead. These troubles are step by step manifesting and people accountable are crying foul. Recently, 2 campaign buses of a factional APC guber candidate within the state, Bar. George Ogara were burnt before of his campaign workplace in Enugu. accusive fingers were pointed at the opposite faction. Till date, nobody has denied or settle for responsibility for the crime. during this scenario, one cannot say that silence is golden. Thus, this ugly development could be a clear indication of dissonance and confusion within the party. Having discovered that foundation members had left their camp, it’s currently dawned on the mount Nwoye faction that its candidates for the elections are while not people’s support. It recently defendant legislator Ken Nnamani of anti-party activities, only for attending a operate in his village, wherever he acknowledged and praised the nice works of Enugu Governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi. This shows an absence of understanding that sensible governance can not be sacrificed on the altar of partisan politics. we have a tendency to should not forget that Nnamani before connection APC was and remains a serious neutral in Enugu State. he’s not a wait-and-take politician or leader, World Health Organization shies faraway from oral communication the reality. Nnamani has created a reputation publically workplace and has continuously shown nationalism within the affairs of his state and also the country, regardless of his political leaning. he’s a robust advocate of excellent governance and peace. that’s even the explanation the APC leadership and also the Presidency received him with open arms once he joined the party and was given a distinguished role in their 2019 presidential campaign. The party is aware of his leadership value and has recognized him consequently. So, no one will needlessly taint Nnamani’s hard-earned name, by levelling uncorroborated allegation against his temperament. If Nwoye alleges that Nnamani’s discuss Governor Ugwuanyi’s sterling performance in workplace amounts to anti-party behaviour, what is going to he say concerning President Muhammadu Buhari riding within the same automotive with Sokoto State governor, Aminu Tambuwal recently in Sokoto once Buhari paid acknowledgement visit to late president Shehu Shagari’s family, when Tambuwal had not solely defected from APC to PDP, he had powerfully criticised Buhari’s government. In Ogun State, the outgoing governor, Ibikunle Amosun, World Health Organization could be a robust member of APC is backing AN opposition party’s candidate to succeed him. This was when he lost get into APC berth power struggle within the state. the identical issue is occurring in United Nations agency State, wherever the outgoing governor of the state, Rochas Okorocha, World Health Organization could be a legislator candidate of APC is backing his relative-in-law, Uche Nwosu in another party. This didn’t stop the APC leadership and also the Presidency from as well as Okorocha’s spouse within the APC Presidential Campaign Council. Examples are endless and it’s clear that Nigeria has passed the time of primal and primitive politics. Nwoye’s outburst is nothing, however expression of phobic neurosis, having completed that defeat awaits APC within the forthcoming elections within the state, particularly within the berth. it’s quite unfortunate that Nwoye’s faction allowed undertakers and impostors to rubbish the gains created within the party over the years by handing them the party tickets comfy. What ought to be of worry to Nwoye is that because the elections clasp, APC campaign activities are at their lowest. this can be as a result of aggrieved party trustworthy are avoiding the candidates, as they’re not standard. Some party members are of the opinion that the election within the state is PDP versus PDP because the foundation members of APC are currently spectators within the game. that’s verity position of issue in Enugu APC. therefore for somebody World Health Organization compromised the party’s fortunes within the state for ungenerous interests, there’s no justification transferring aggression on Nnamani. After all, Nnamani and alternative APC chieftains had warned against handing the party’s tickets to impostors and less-traveled folks, World Health Organization defected to the party few days to the primaries. however the likes of food-is-ready politicians ne’er listened. it’s therefore unhappy that aside from not being standard, majority of APC candidates within the state haven’t any monetary wherewithal to bankroll their campaigns and elections. Not even party members or unselfish people are willing to risk their hard-earned resources to support them, knowing full well that they’re not standard. • Agboeze, APC Chieftain wrote from Abakpa Greek deity, Enugu
