27 Ebonyi APC aspirants threaten to seek redress in court

House of Assembly aspirants on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ebonyi State, weekend threatened to seek redress in court, if it becomes clear that they were unduly disqualified from participating in the Party’s forthcoming primary election by the Screening Committee sent to conduct the exercise in the State.

The aspirants numbering 27 stated this at a press conference in Abakaliki.

They alleged that the Chairman of the House of Assembly Screening Committee in the state, Mr. Ideato Ideato, had told them shortly after the screening exercise in Abakaliki that they were not cleared on the ground that they did not pay party dues.

The affected aspirants stated that they duly paid their party dues as the party had also issued them with their receipts of payment.

Speaking on behalf of the Group, Mr Chukwu Orji, from Ivo Constituency, alleged that the Chairman of the Screening Committee was working in connivance with Governor David Umahi to ensure that only a few selected State House of Assembly aspirants were cleared to participate in the Party’s primary election. Orji further alleged that Governor Umahi was also secretly working with the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to ensure the defeat of APC during the 2023 general election.
