Abia APC plots against Enelamah

Abia APC plots against Enelamah

The ruling All Progressive Con­gress (APC) in Abia State has moved against the Minister of Trade and Investment, Mr Okechukwu Enela­mah, accusing him of treating the party with disdain.
The party also cast doubt over Enelamah’s membership of APC, saying he does not know the party secre­tariat in Umuahia.
Abia State Chairman of APC Elders Council, Chief Geoffrey Ony­emaobi, who conveyed the party’s position in an interview with newsmen in his Afar­aukwu Ibeku country home, said Onyeamah’s nonchalance attitude towards the party af­fairs was a big disap­pointment.
“The Minister has done little or nothing to ensure the growth of APC in Abia”, Ony­emaobi alleged.
The APC chieftain further said that En­elamah had decided on his own never to par­ticipate in any of the party’s functions de­spite several invitations extended to him.
Continuing, he said: “since Enelamah was appointed Minister, he has never visited the state APC secretariat or care to know how the party is being run in Abia.”
Onyemaobi also al­leged that the Minister had continuously and deliberately ignored invitations sent to him for stakeholders’ meet­ings in the state.
The Second Republic lawmaker vowed that Abia APC would resist any attempt by Presi­dent Muhammadu Buhari to re-appoint Enelamah as minister, arguing that the state’s slot cannot be given to a non-committed party member.
“I doubt if the Minis­ter is a registered mem­ber of APC. Enelamah never visited or shown concern during the one-week party mem­bership registration ex­ercise conducted in th entire South-East zone including Abia State.”
The APC chief con­tended that with the likes of Enelamah, APC in Abia might not win the state in 2019, warn­ing the national leader­ship of the party not to ignore the danger sig­nals.
