The Deputy Chairman of the All Progressives Congress in Enugu State, Adolphus Ude, was on Tuesday expelled from the party after leading a faction of the state working committee to announce the suspension of the chairman, Ben Nwoye.
Udeh announced Nwoye’s suspension after a meeting at the party’s Enugu secretariat on Monday.
Udeh and his group, including the acting state secretary, Okolo Louis, the state Woman Leader, Queen Nwankwo; the financial secretary, Sydney Eze; youth leader, Ikechukwu Oloto; and the state treasurer, Okoro Ebere, accused Nwoye of running the party like a personal enterprise.
They also accused Nwoye of financial misappropriation.
But the matter took a new turn on Tuesday after Nwoye and other members of the SEC rose from a meeting, which also held at the party’s secretariat, to announce Udeh’s expulsion from the APC.
Addressing journalists after the meeting, where a vote of confidence was passed in him, Nwoye explained that Udeh’s expulsion followed investigations by a fact-finding/disciplinary committee.
Reading a resolution, which he co-signed with 42 other officials of the party, Nwoye declared that Udeh’s expulsion was with immediate effect.
