A chieftain of the All Progressives’ Congress (APC), Ejike Njeze, yesterday dismissed threats by the chairman of the party in Enugu state, Ben Nwoye, to expel the Minister of Foreign Affairs, for allegedly altering the list of delegates that will participate in the party’s forthcoming national convention, saying the allegations were unfounded.
Nwoye had alleged in a recent press briefing that the Minister breached Article 21 of the party’s delegates’ list and so deserved expulsion as punishment for such offence.
But in an interview with Vanguard in Abuja, Chief Njeze described the threat by the state chairman as an unfortunate and senseless protest against Onyeama’s foiling of his attempt to hijack and compromise the local government congresses in order to hand over a list of his cronies, family members and girlfriends as delegates to the party’s forthcoming national convention.
He added that Nwoye had no moral right to speak on the expulsion of a high-ranking member of the party from the state as he also has a heap of allegations bordering on fraudulent activities, criminalities and anti-party activities to answer to.
