The All Progressives Congress, APC, in Anambra State has accused the Anambra State Governor, Chief Willie Obiano and his party, the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, of interfering in the party’s registration exercise.
The party said Obiano was doing so through some of his aides, adding that Thursday’s interference was the height of it all, as some of the aides sought to take possession of some registration materials meant for particular local government areas of the state.
A press release by the state publicity secretary of APC in Anambra, Mr Okelo Madukife warned Obiano to desist from such interference.
It said, “Our great party frowns vehemently at the attempted wilful disruption of the APC Registration in Orumba North Local Government Area (LGA) by Gov. Willie Obiano, using his Special Assistant of Special Duties and former member of APC, Mr. Emeka Nnebe.
“Obiano’s emissary surrounded APC’s material distribution centre, Awka yesterday and today, seeking to gain forceful possession of materials meant for Orumba North LGA.
“We know it for a fact that our party has not intervened in the lifeless scheme of programs in APGA, let alone introduce thugs to meddle in her dirty kitchen.
“It therefore beats us hollow why someone who by the express provision of our constitution was an APC member until he accepted a political appointment in APGA misgovernance of Anambra State will find the temerity to invade the Centre of materials distribution seeking to hijack materials.”
The party said Obiano’s fears were understandable as APGA members were leaving the party in droves to register with the APC.
