At a meeting of the Enugu State Executive Committee of the All Progress Congress (APC), on Wednesday, December 16,2020, the indefinite suspension of the former chairman of APC in Enugu, Ben Nwoye, was ratified, in line with provisions of Article 21 of the APC constitution.
The ratification, which was unanimous, followed adoption of reports of a disciplinary committee which investigated Nwoye for sundry offences, ranging from anti-party activities, corruption, to persistent disrespect for party elders.
A statement signed by Chairman of the State Party Caretaker Committee. Deacon Okey Ogbodo said Nwoye’s suspension is with immediate effect.
The house reviewed what it termed unwholesome activities of Mr. Nwoye when he was party chairman alleging that he ran APC like a personal estate, making himself serial senatorial candidate, while doubling as chairman, “obvious ploy to ingratiate himself to our PDP adversaries by blocking the emergence of credible APC candidates for elections.
