The statement read, ‘Emeka Alihe, in introducing the motion calling for the immediate suspension of Charles Ugwu from office, drew the State Executive Committee’s attention to the fact that he has it on good authority that since August 2023, Charles Ugwu has failed to summon a meeting of the State Working Committee contrary to the provisions of S. 21 (3) of the party’s Constitution.

‘He also stated that Charles Ugwu, without any reason or justifiable reason failed to attend any of the thank you tours embarked upon by the governorship candidate of the party to the 27 LGs of Imo State including that of Owerri Municipal Council that was done at the state secretariat of this party contrary to S. 58(i) (e) of the party’s constitution notwithstanding that he was duly notified of the tour.

‘He went on to draw the committee’s attention to the fact that Charles Ugwu, despite due information by the state campaign council, has failed to attend any of the Local Government campaign rallies embarked on so far by the party contrary to S. 58(i) (e) of the party constitution.’
