The APC in Enugu State has been torn apart by an internal crisis.

Some chieftains of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Enugu State on Wednesday boycotted the presidential campaign rally held in the state.

The party chieftains were at the Akanu Ibiam International Airport Enugu to welcome the presidential candidate of the party, Bola Tinubu and disappeared from there.

Notable among them were the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, a former Senate President, Ken Nnamani, former governor of the state, Sullivan Chime, and former Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Eugene Odo.

Briefing journalists, Mr Chime said they were at the airport to receive the presidential candidate but could not appear at the rally because of the internal issue they had with the APC Chairperson in Enugu State, Ugochukwu Agballah.

Mr Chime said nothing has been done about their grievances after they staged a peaceful protest at the APC National Secretariat in Abuja.

The former governor said “someone not known by the party” emerged as the party chairman and he is so arrogant and disrespectful to the leaders.
