ENUGU- The Labour Party (LP) has taken over the Enugu state secretariat of the All Progressives Congress (APC) located at No 126 Park Avenue, GRA. This happened after the owner of the building rented it to the Labour Party when the APC leadership in the state failed to renew the rent.
The Labour Party has now unveiled the building as its secretariat in the southeast state, Leadership reports. It was gathered that this latest disgrace is the climax of crisis and leadership failure in the Enugu chapter of the party.
The crisis was said to have taken a new dimension in 2021 after the APC’s national congress which produced Barr. Ugochukwu Agballa as the state chairman. Agballa’s alleged poor performance necessitated a visit by a delegation of the party’s stakeholders to the national secretariat in which a demand was made for the constitution of a caretaker committee.
However, the embattled chairman dismissed the stakeholders, including the foreign affairs minister, Geoffrey Onyeama, and Senator Ken Nnamani, a former Senate president.
The Enugu APC chairman has been operating from the southeast zonal office of the party since his election.
