Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze says the constitution says yes
The All Progressives Congress (APC) seems to be run by the courts. Twice, it has been stopped by the judiciary in the state from fielding candidates for any elective positions and also from even having congresses to elect officials.
At any point in time, there is someone in court obtain easy injunctions to stop them from making any headway, and many are happy.
Now, a flyer is in the sky probably to test the ground on the legitimacy of the national body setting up a caretaker committee to pilot the affairs of the party.
Party constitution permits APC to inaugurate CTC where needed, Eze enlightens Aguma… Advices those seeking peace with him to forget the idea… Says Aguma has abused Amaechi’s political generosity to him.
Former Spokesman of the defunct New People’s Democratic Party, and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, has offered a tip to Mr. Igochukwu Aguma, over his continued display of ignominious and stack ignorance in the express provisions of the party’s constitution, especially, the law, as regards the setting up of a Caretaker Committee to oversees the affairs of the party in a state, as is the case in Rivers State.
Igo Aguma had recently approached the court in Rivers State to stop scheduled Congresses of the APC in the state and to declare the NWC constituted Caretaker Committee of the party illegal.
In a recent interview, Igo Aguma, reiterated his position, stressing that the constitution of a CTC is alien to the party constitution and therefore illegal and a nullity. What a blunder.
Aguma’s reason for making such ridiculous, laughable, contemptuous and untutored remark cannot be hastily fathomed. It however, has some obvious undertone; it could be that Ugochukwu Aguma does not own a copy of the party’s constitution to peruse through or he is constantly in a state of cultural amnesia, or he is just ignorant and unteachable.
Having learnt that Aguma needs a rudimentary training on the workings of the party, I volunteer to tutor him a little bit on the position of the constitution of the All Progressives Congress, touching on the setting up of a CTC.
Article 13.4 (xvi) of the APC Constitution unambiguously provides thus:
“The National Working Committee shall have the power to set up a Caretaker Committee in place of any organ where there exists in the opinion of the National Working Committee a lacuna by virtue of any act or omission done in furtherance of this Constitution.”
This is the position of the constitution and nothing more pretentious. While I counsel Igochukwu Aguma to withdraw his ignorance from public display and allow some peace in the Rivers APC, I urge those seeking peace with him and his likes to be properly guided, as his reason for fighting the party has been made bare.
Eze finally reiterated that the plot to destroy and weaken APC in Rivers State by Aguma and his cronies and their misguided sponsors will come to nothing as Rivers State people are too knowledgeable to be deceived by their evil plot to dismantle and destroy the best political product ever from Rivers State in the person of Rt. Hon. Dr. Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi.
Eze counsels Aguma to retrace his steps and allow peace to prevail in the party as his present position will surely nail his political fortunes and future and should understand that he is nothing politically without Amaechi no matter whatever those that don’t mean well for the State are telling him to continue to pursue a case he is sure that he will never win.
