Crisis in the South East All Progressives Congress (APC) has continued to deepen, as Senator Chris Ngige has faulted the naming of former Senate President, Ken Nnamani as the zone’s party leader.
Ngige, who is one of the zone founding fathers of APC, told newsmen that Governor Rochas Okorocha was wrong to name Nnamani the APC leader for the region.
Ngige addressing newsmen in Awka, the Anambra state capital, said there is no provision in APC constitution for the post of zonal leader.
He described the creation of such a post as illegal, and a non issue, that should not cause confusion in the zone’s APC.
Also speaking on the issue, APC deputy national vice chairman for the zone, Chief Emma Eneukwu, said Okorocha’s pronouncement is causing crisis in the zone’s APC, whose immediate task is winning the Anambra state governorship poll.
