I remain Anambra APC Publicity Secretary- Okelo Madukaife
Publicity secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Anambra State, Mr Okelo Madukife who was allegedly sacked for congratulating winner of the just concluded governorship election, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo has insisted that he remains a member of the party.
Okelo also insisted that he remains the publicity secretary of the party.
HE WROTE: Our attention
has been drawn to a piece of misadventurous opinion inflicted on public space by Chief Basil Ejidike,
State Caretaker Chairman of APC,at financial,emotional health reputation cost to APC.
Chief Ejidike, while illegally congregating the press in a leisure hotel in Awka libelously claimed that the spokesman and State Publicity Secretary of the Anambra State Chapter of APC is no longer a member of APC.
This statement seeks, to apologize to the membership of APC in Anambra state invite the general public to pardon the ignorance of our Chairman on precedures and processes enlisted in our advanced constitution which has led him to cross the avoidable boundaries.
The general public is hereby advised that not only is the membership of the undersigned protected by the letters and spirit of the 2014 APC Constitution, his mandate as State Publicity subsists and runs until Anambra State Congresses hold.
We recall a similar attempt at usurping the office of the state Publicity Secretary which predictably failed in July 2019 and predict similar outcome on the latest tirade targetted at 2021 congresses.
The general public is advised to discountenance the misdemeanor contained in the misguided statement, which will now be the subject of consultations in the State Working Committee, State Executive Council and the State Caucus.
We as a party willl continue to guard against those like Ejidike who necodemously trade off our right to democratic choice for a mess of pottage.
Once again, we join our national leader, President Muhammadu Buhari, our state leader, Sen. Chris Nwabueze Ngige, who Ejidike despises and fights with the support of extraneous elements, as well as all 2021 Governorship aspirants, shortchanged in June 26 primaries to congratulate the State governors – elect, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo as we gear up to hold him accountable to Ndi Anambra on his election promises.
Our congratulations is without prejudice to the right of anyone empowered by law to challenge the outcome of the election in the election tribunal.
For:ALL PROGRESSIVES CONGRESS (APC), ANAMBRA STATE CHAPTER
State Publicity Secretary H n
