This bought right here amidst claims by Barr. Ugo Agballa that he was elected chairman all through certainly one of many congresses carried out throughout the State earlier in October.
One different congress moreover produced Comrade Adolphus Ude as chairman of the celebration throughout the Coal Metropolis State.
However at a stakeholders meeting held in Oji-River Native Authorities Space, the stakeholders said Agballah, a non-member of the celebration couldn’t in any technique be said to be the partys chairman.

Whereas sustaining that no congress was held throughout the State, the stakeholders said throughout the communique that on the sixteenth of October, 2021, which was the day scheduled for the State Congress, the said Congress Committee with out publishing the guidelines of delegates for the Congress and with out conducting the accreditation of delegates arbitrarily with out prior uncover moved the Congress from its genuine venue on the Golden Royale Occasion Centre, Independence Format, Enugu to Future Occasion Centre, New Haven Enugu.
That on getting wind of the change of venue, a whole bunch of delegates who had come to formally ratify all the consensus candidates as elected officers of the Occasion arrived on the brand new venue nevertheless have been denied entry to the venue by employed thugs stationed on the doorway. Whereas on the gate, the members of the Congress Committee arrived and have been let into the model new venue by the said thugs.
That inside ten minutes of their said arrival, the said Committee have been whisked away from the venue consequent upon the commotion and fracas that ensued inside and outdoor the venue between the delegates and the thugs.
That though we’ve got been denied entry into the venue, we’d see all the happenings contained in the Occasion Centre as a result of it was an open enviornment.
That the members of the Committee have been taken straight to the Enugu Airport, from the place they flew once more to Abuja that evening with none Congress train taking place.
That no Congress held in Enugu on the sixteenth of October, 2021.

That we later heard and seen on the social media that one Hyacinth Ugochukwu Agballah from Udi in Ezeagu/Udi Federal Constituency claimed to have been declared elected as a result of the Chairman by the said Committee.
That the said Ugochukwu Agballa was a member of the PDP, a rival political celebration throughout the State as on the second week of July, 2021, when he publicly indicated intention to hitch our costly celebration as a member and by which interval the revalidation/registration practice of members and new members of the celebration had been suspended pending the conclusion of Congresses and Nationwide Conference.

That the said Ugochkwu Agballa and his enablers are showing alone and pursuing their selfish and dangerous agenda. Neither have they bought the mandate or signify the curiosity of APC Udi/Ezeagu Federal Constituency or APC Enugu West Senatorial District.
That as a result of the consensus candidate for the office of APC State Chairman, Enugu State that Group Capt. Orji be declared and inaugurated because the model new State Chairman of the Occasion throughout the State with out further delay.
That each the consensus candidates as contained throughout the guidelines submitted by the three Senatorial Districts and as endorsed by the stakeholders/Occasion members be declared because the model new executives of the celebration throughout the State.
That given that consensus lists from Enugu East and Enugu North Senatorial Districts keep intact, that the Enugu West Senatorial Consensus guidelines agreed to, adopted and signed by Enugu West stakeholders shouldn’t be tampered with.
That if nothing is accomplished urgently to proper this anomaly, that our place as APC Enugu West is that ZONING IS DEAD IN APC, ENUGU STATE.
