2019 Presidency: Opportunists messing around with Atiku’s name in Enugu – APC chieftain, James Nwanjoku

The Zonal Organising Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Enugu West Senatorial Zone of Enugu State, Mr. James Okugo Nwanjoku, has blamed the reported flawed meeting of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar’s supporters in Enugu over the weekend on the coordinator of Integrity Group in the State, Mr. Adolphus Ude.
The Integrity Group is a political group believed to be championing Atiku’s presidential ambition.
However, in a statement made available to DAILY POST by Nwanjoku, he blamed the development on opportunists.
His statement read: “Whereas, we have great respect for the former Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, Turaki Adamawa and his consummate Media Office, however, we are at a loss how cleverly the Integrity Group was singled out, without any mention of neither Atiku’s Coordinator since 2015 presidential primary, Comrade Adolphus Ude nor their new recruit, Barrister Juliet Ibekaku,Special Assistant to President on Justice Reform who were elaborately mentioned in the statement of the failed parley.
“Most importantly, we agree with Atiku Media Office that the work of Comrade Ude and Mrs Ibakaku is the work of opportunists, political jobbers and shortsighted schemers, who have created schisms in APC Enugu State for selfish ends.
“Otherwise, how can they use Atiku’s name to cause confusion interalia:
“‎Set up the Integrity Group to scatter Buhari Support Organisation (BSO);
“Raise Vice chairman of Enugu West Senatorial Zone to replace Engr Ike Omenkeukwu, duly elected without a valid Congress as enunciated in the constitution of our great party, the All Progressives Congress (APC);
“Simulate petition to the Ag. Secretary to Government of the Federation (SGF) against the State Executive Committee, without exhausting all the channels in the constitution of the APC;
“Insinuate murder petition to the Inspector General of Police against one of their political traducers, Jude Anyadibe, chairman APC Udi local government area and;
“Convoke an illegal Enugu West Senatorial Zonal Meeting using the innocent name of His Excellency Geoffrey Onyeama, Hon. Minister of Foreign Affairs to validate it.
“In sum, we are in the same page with Atiku Media Office that the media is our partners in the democratic progress and therefore the media should not be blamed for the nefarious anti-party activities of Comrade Adolphus Ude and cohorts.”

  1. I will urge the media to always do a thorough job before publications to avoid a repeat of this.
    Atiku Abubakar may take it lightly because of his person but I don't think that can be said of other top politicians.
