The Enugu State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has announced the suspension of the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, and former President of the Senate, Chief Ken Nnamani, from the party.
The party in the state also recommended the expulsion of former governor of the state, Sullivan Chime; Director General of Voice of Nigeria (VON), Osita Okechuukwu; former Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Eugene Odo; Special Assistant to the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Flavour Eze; Joe Mammel as well as Maduka Arum, from the party.
The state secretary of the party, Dr. Robert Ngwu, who announced the suspension and expulsion recommendation ratified by the State Executive Council, said the affected party members were involved in anti-party activities.
In another report, the candidate of the Labour Party in the just concluded presidential election, Peter Obi has claimed that the leaked audio of an alleged conversation between him and the founder of Living Faith Church Worldwide, Bishop David Oyedepo, is fake.
The audio allegedly had Obi telling Oyedepo that the presidential election was a religious war and that the clergyman should help him beg people in the South-West and Kwara State, especially Christians, to support his ambition.
Reacting, Obi, in a statement he personally signed on Wednesday, said at no point in his ‘issue-based campaign’ did he ever refer to the election as a religious war.
He also lamented alleged attempts by the ruling All Progressives Congress to divert ‘attention from our blatantly stolen mandate.’
