Leaders of the All Progressives Congress in Enugu state have filed a petition with the party’s national secretariat demanding the removal of the president of the state chapter, Ugochukwu Agballah.

In the petition addressed to the APC’s national chairman, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, they accused the embattled state chairman of dismantling existing structures at the district and local level with the ultimate aim of sidelining the party’s leaders.

In the petition signed by Secretary of State Geoffrey Onyama; former Senate President, Ken Nnamani; former governor candidate, Ayogu Eze; Director General, Voice of Nigeria,
Director General Osita Okechukwu, among others, called for the dissolution of the head of state and replacement with a janitor team.

The petition reads in part: “The party is imploding and on the brink of imminent collapse. As things stand, it is not in a position to be competitive in the general election. The leaders now believe that a radical solution is needed to save the State Party from total collapse and disgrace in the state.

“The aim is to unite the party through the appointment of an interim chairman, as the current chairman has alienated and lost the confidence of the majority of members of the state party and his leadership.


“Most importantly, it should be noted that on August 19, 2022, he was lawfully removed by his Udi/Agbudu branch of Udi LGA in Enugu state by an overwhelming majority of party members in his ward. A copy of the resolution is attached herewith.

“This petition has been written for the purpose of informing the National Chairman and National Working Committee of APC on the state of affairs of our major party in Enugu State. As elders of the party in the state, we firmly believe that it is our duty to bring these anomalies to your attention for urgent remedial action. One stitch in time saves nine!

“Our prayer: We urge the NWC to immediately save the party in Enugu state from total collapse by removing Mr. Ugochukwu Agballa from office and replacing him with a janitor chairman who is not in the current executive committee of the state should fall. The party still has a chance to remedy the situation and be competitive in the general election.
