Some stakeholders of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Anambra State have started the process of removing the chairman of the party in the state, Emeka Ibe.
The APC chairman was accused of lacking leadership qualities that could position the party to win elections.
The stakeholders, under the aegis of Special Concerned Elders’ Forum, had an emergency meeting in Awka, where they also accused the chairman of not carrying members of the party along in the scheme of things.
In a joint press briefing by Emma Okpalonwu and Joe Ifejiaka, who spoke on behalf of the stakeholders, they said it became imperative to re-zone party leadership positions so as to balance the political equation in the party.
“All offices currently occupied by the North Senatorial Zone, will be allocated to Central Senatorial Zone.
“All offices currently occupied by Central Senatorial Zone, will be assigned to the South Senatorial Zone.
“All offices currently occupied by the South Senatorial Zone, will be taken up by the North Senatorial Zone.
“All the members and zones are advised to comply accordingly to ensure a peaceful congress of APC in the state,” they said.
According to them, since the governorship position would be zoned to the South Senatorial Zone, it would be fair and just to effect the zoning formula as resolved.
