Nigeria’s Former Ambassador to India Dumps APC Over Muslim-Muslim Ticket, Joins Labour Party

Date:

 

A chieftain of All Progressives Congress and ex-Ambassador to India, Maj.-Gen. Chris Eze (rtd.) has dumped the party.

 

Eze dumped APC and crossed over to the Labour Party.

 

Eze, from Udenu Local Government Area (LGA) of Enugu State, said he dumped APC for flying a Muslim-Muslim presidential ticket.

 

He disclosed this in a letter dated Aug. 4, 2022, addressed to the Chairman, APC, Udunedem Ward in Udenu LGA and made available to newsmen on Friday in Enugu.

 

The retired Major General said that his decision to quit the party was due to the controversy that had trailed the nomination of the party’s flag-bearers in the 2023 presidential election.

 

Eze, who was the first elected secretary of the APC in Enugu State, said that he would join the Labour Party (LP) to support the presidential candidate of the party, Mr Peter Obi.

 

He also said that his resignation from the APC was to support the gubernatorial and senatorial ambitions of Messers Chijioke Edeoga and Okey Ezea, respectively, in the LP.

“I cannot in good conscience defend the party’s Muslim-Muslim ticket in the coming campaign for the presidential election.

“I also can no longer bear the dictatorial manner in which the party is administered in the State.

“I believe that Obi, Edeoga and Ezea are the best candidates for presidential, gubernatorial and Enugu North Senatorial elections, respectively,” he said.

 

Eze said that he was not satisfied with the standard of governance in Enugu State and needed a platform that would make life more meaningful to residents of the State.

 

“I wish to thank the APC and President Muhammadu Buhari for giving me the opportunity to serve as Nigeria’s High Commission to India,” Eze said.

 

Eze was a member, Security Sub-Committee, APC Presidential Campaign Committee in 2015.
