Confusion in ADC, as Interim leadership overrules expulsion of Kachikwu, others

There seems to be confusion within the ranks of the African Democratic Congress (ADC) as different sets of people are claiming leadership of the party, and issuing different proclamations.

This is as an interim leadership of the party on Saturday, overruled the expulsion of its presidential candidate and some other key national leaders as announced by the National Chairman of the party, Ralphs Okey Nwosu.

The new development was announced by the interim National Chairman of the Party, Patricia Akwashiki, in a statement on Saturday.

The interim chairman described Nwosu as the party’s erstwhile chairman, branding his actions as the ‘antics of a sinking man clutching at straws.’

Akwashiki told party members and Nigerians to disregard the diversionary and divisive activities of Nwosu.

She insisted that the ADC would not be distracted by the actions of the former chairman and his hirelings parading as genuine officers of the party.

She said: “Nwosu is the former chairman whose tenure has elapsed who now seeks to pull the party down because he failed in his bid to extend his tenure after 17 years as party chairman.

“All expulsions and suspensions from Nwosu and his cabal are merely diversionary and a face saving measure as he faces investigation for fraud, forgery and impersonation by the Nigeria Police.

“The general public is therefore advised to ignore any statements emanating from Nwosu or any member of the former National Working Committee.

“Chief Ralphs Nwosu has approached the courts to challenge his removal, so, he is advised to wait for the court ruling and stop making a fool of himself.

“The party reiterates that ADC is not for sale and won’t enter into any alliance, so buyer beware! Anything that has a beginning must have an end. Nwosu had been chairman of our great party for 17 years and we thank him for the services he has rendered.

“Now he is no more due to the need to reorganize the party and put her on a sound footing to win elections.

“To continue to arrogate power and cloth himself with borrowed robes amount to impersonation which can only emanate from grand delusion.

“The ADC has moved on. Nwosu had better wake up to reality. The constitution of the party is supreme and there is no provision therein for a life national chairman.”
