An immediate investigation into alleged anti-party activities of some chieftains of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the South-East before and during the 2019 general elections has been mooted by former Abia Governor, Chief Orji Kalu.

Speaking at the zonal stakeholders’ meeting of the APC on Saturday in Enugu, Kalu called on the leadership of the party in the zone to immediately raise a committee to investigate the allegations.

He said, “One of the leaders of the party outside this zone told me that some of our chieftains including serving ministers negotiated with the PDP governors to allow our party 25 per cent of votes cast at the polls.

“We have to fish out the people that said our party could not afford more than 25 per cent votes for President Muhammadu Buhari and punish them. They sabotaged us. We cannot be working for the party and look like fools. Some of us worked but a few went to Abuja to say we could not deliver.”

According to him, some party chieftains in the zone sabotaged genuine efforts of the party by aligning with the Peoples Democratic Party which adversely affected the perfromance of the APC in the South East.

“There is no way the APC could not have won states like Abia but some of our leaders worked against it.,” Kalu said.
