The All Progressives Congress candidates contesting for various positions in Enugu State have passed a vote of confidence on the state party Chairman, Ugochuckwu Agballah.
The party’s flagbearers made their position known at an emergency stakeholders meeting held in Enugu.
The APC had recently alleged that the state chairman was expelled from the party by a faction but stakeholders from the 17 local government party chairmen, 260 political wards executives, elected party candidates and grassroots party members passed a vote of confidence on the leadership of Ugochukwu Agballa as the authentic party chairman in Enugu state.
An APC Presidential aspirant in the last party national special convention, described the crisis as a plan to distract the state executive, six months to the general election.
In a twist of events, a federal house of representatives candidate of the party, insisted that the chairman’s expulsion stands and will soon be ratified.
As the back and forth continues, party members are of the view that the task ahead of the party is to win the election in the state and at the national level.
They are now calling on all party members to sheath their sword and give peace a chance before, during and after the 2023 general elections.
