By Mmaduabuchi Onwumelu

The All Progressives Congress (APC) Anambra State Chapter says there’s no rift between their leaders in the State.

In a Release signed and made available to Newsmen in Awka, the
State Publicity Secretary APC Anambra State, Dr. Val. Iyke Oliobi (IKEMBA NIMO) the party said that their leaders are together and intact.

The statement read in part, ‘Our attention has been drawn to series of publications and counter publications by individuals claiming to be supporters of our immediate Governorship Candidate of the APC in the 2021 Anambra Governorship election, Distinguished Senator Andy Uba as well as those of our former National Auditor of the All Progressives Congress and the Director General of Igwebuike Campaign Organization, Chief Sir Paul Chukwuma.

‘In order to set the records straight, the Anambra State Chapter of the APC wishes to state categorically that there is no rift whatsoever or wherever derived between Distinguished Senator Andy Uba and Chief Sir Paul Chukwuma as being peddled in the media space by mischief makers and enemies of progress.

‘For the avoidance of doubt, Sen. Andy Uba and Sir Paul Chukwuma are in very good terms as far as the party is concerned and there is no indication to the contrary from the two gentlemen.

‘We therefore caution unscrupulous elements attempting to manufacture a feud between Sen. Andy Uba and Sir Paul Chukwuma where there is none to henceforth, desist from their malicious/calumnious undertakings and spare the little life in APC Anambra State. The leadership of the APC in Anambra State will not fold her arms and watch fifth columnists denigrate the image and integrity of our leaders, come what may.

‘We also call on overzealous supporters of some of our stakeholders to stop creating imaginary and conspiratorial plots, quarrels and disputes.

If at all, there is any disputes between and among party stakeholders or members, the State Working Committee of the Party led by Hon. Chief Basil Ejidike will surely be made aware of such and is more than capable to bring a swift resolution to such disputes.

‘Furthermore, we also urge them to tread with caution and stop maligning the personalities of Amb. Elijah Onyeagba PhD, High Chief Engr. Johnbosco Onunkwo and a few others who have successfully distinguished themselves in many ways and have continued to support the party at all times.

We also warn these fifth columnists to desist from joining personal businesses of our leaders into politics because we know that God has blessed them all in their different endeavours.

‘The APC in Anambra State is undergoing a thorough repositioning so as to be better prepared for the task of providing Anambra the best pathway to a Renewed Hope in 2025. We will not allow those fifth columnists to truncate such a progressive move.

‘Our capacity State Chairman Hon. Chief Basil Ejidike is sleeplessly and painstakingly working assiduously on how best Anambra APC can make an APC Governor, come 2025 and can’t condone any form of distraction and insubordination arising from any political mischievousness in this party. And the State Working Committee will take a drastic measure to discipline any one, who continues to go against this caution, henceforth.
See danger and apply caution, pls, ‘ the statement read.
