This may not be the best of times for former Senate President, Chief Ken Nnamani as the All Progressives Congress, APC members in Enugu State is battle ready for the former Number one man of the red Chambers over an alleged mismanagement of funds made available to the State to care of party agents, candidates, as well as other logistics meant for the botched presidential and National Assembly polls.
We had earlier reported that the former Senate boss has been having a running battle with the leadership of APC in the state over his alleged anti party activities- the party in the state has been accusing Nnamani of working for the ruling peoples Democratic party PDP in the state.
A source close to one of the candidates who doesn’t want his name in print told our Correspondent that “this singular act of former senate president, Chief Ken Nnamani, has vindicated members of APC in Enugu state over his alleged romance with the PDP. It simply means that he doesn’t want APC to succeed in the election.
“But my brother, the unfortunate thing is that we have been shouting all this while over his anti party activities in the state, but the national leadership of our party seems not to be taking the accusation seriously. The man is not a committed member of APC and that is why he is not proud of the party in the state.”
Amongst the 3 senatorial district in the state, Enugu West Senatorial Zone, which is made up of Awgu, Ezeagu Udi, Aninri and Oji River LGAs was reported to be the most hit by the alleged recklessness of Sen Nnamani, as funds meant for the zone was reportedly not given to the candidates- an allegation which was confirmed by an aide to one of the candidates in the area.
While calling on the national leadership of the APC to wade into the matter for the interest of the party, the aggrieved stakeholders, urged the national chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, to ensure that the one time senate president did not go unpunished over the act.
Meanwhile, there are strong indications that the affected APC agents and candidates have concluded arrangement to storm the National Secretariat of the APC in Abuja before Saturday to protest Senator Nnamani’s action.
Efforts by our Correspondent to speaks with Nnamani and the state chairman of the party, Dr. Ben Nwoye on the issue was unsuccessful, as their mobile phones was not reachable as at the time of filling this report.
