Controversy trails conduct of ACN congress in Ebonyi

BY PETER OKUTU

ABAKALIKI – CONTROVERSIES seem to be trailing the conduct of the last congress of Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN, in Ebonyi State as the factions allegedly headed by the Deputy National Organising Secretary of the party, Princess Tonia Adol-Awam and Senator Julius Ali Ucha, are still at logger-heads as to who controls the machinery of the party in the state.

Princess Adol-Awam,  described the congress as a kangaroo arrangement put in place by the enemies of ACN in the state.

But in a swift reaction, the purported chairman of the party in the state, Dr. Sylvester Nwambe, noted that the congress was well conducted and supervised by members of Independent National Electoral

Commission, INEC, and other national officers of the party.

He said, therefore, nobody had the right to play down the result of the congress.

Adol-Awam, however, said:  “It is terrible for me to hear that congress was held in Ebonyi State; at least as a national officer, the purported chairman of the congress committee ought to have called me immediately he arrived Ebonyi. I didn’t get any call from him either when he came for introduction or during the congress.

“They are political harlots; they have been dumped by PDP and sacked by ANPP and they think they can destabilise ACN.

We are an organized party with internal democracy. I’m employing the National to do an independent investigation into this calibre of politicians.
