Plot against Enelamah thickens as Abia APC vows to stop his re- appointment

www.odogwublog.com reports that the ruling All Progressive Congress ( APC) in Abia State has moved against the Minister for Trade and Investment, Mr. Okechukwu Enelamah, accusing him of treating the party with disdain.

The party also cast doubt over Enelamah's  membership of APC , saying "he does  not know the party secretariat in Umuahia".

Abia State Chairman of APC Elders Council, Chief Geoffrey Onyemaobi who conveyed the party's position in an interview with newsmen in his Afaraukwu Ibeku country home, said Onyeamah's nonchalance towards the party affairs was " a big disappointment".

" The Minister  has done little or nothing to ensure the growth of APC in Abia", Onyemaobi alleged.
The APC chieftain further said that Enelamah had decided on his own never to participate in any of the party's functions despite severally invitations extended to him.
Continuing, he said:  " since Enelamah was appointed Minister, he has never visited the state APC secretariat  nor care to know how the party is being run in Abia."
Onyemaobi also alleged that the Minister had " continuously and  deliberately ignored invitations" sent to him for stakeholders' meetings in the state.
The Second republic lawmaker vowed that Abia APC would resist any  attempt by President Muhammadu Buhari to re-appoint Enelamah as minister, arguing that the state's slot can not be given to a non- committed party member.
" I  doubt if the minister is  a registered member of APC",  Enelamah said, adding that " Enelamah never visited or shown concern during the one-week party membership registration exercise conducted in entire south east zone including Abia state."
The APC chief contended that with the likes of Enelamah, APC in Abia might not win the state in 2019, warning the national leadership of the party not to ignore  the danger signals.
"Any attempt to reappoint him as minister will not augur well to the leadership of APC in Abia state", he added.
The APC chieftain also cautioned the national leadership of the party to quickly resolve the  internal crisis currently rocking  APC ahead of the 2019 general election to avoid playing into the hands of the opposition.
He criticised Buhari for his choice of appointee, grudging that majority of those appointed by the President never worked for the party's victory in 2015. 
Chief Onyemaobi regretted that Buhari had sidelined most of those who laboured to bring APC to power, warning against the far- reaching implications of such attitude in 2019.
End.
