The All Progressives Congress in Enugu State has expelled a former Secretary to the State Government, Chief Onyemauche Nnamani, over alleged misconduct.Nnamani’s expulsion was announced by the Chairman of the APC in Enugu State, Dr Ben Nwoye, on Sunday.According to Nwoye, Nnamani, who served as SSG in Enugu during the administration of former governor Chimaraoke Nnamani, was expelled for taking the APC to court ‘without first ventilating his grievances through internal mechanisms provided in the party’s constitution.’
The development contravened provisions of Article 21 of the APC constitution, which deals with ‘discipline of members,’ Nwoye said.
Nnamani contested the position of APC national vice chairman, South-East, during the party’s national convention.
However, the election was eventually won by the incumbent, Chief Emma Eneukwu.
Nwoye disclosed that a petition filed by Nnamani against the outcome of the election was dismissed by the national convention appeal committee.
The Enugu APC chairman added that Nnamani went ahead to drag the party and Eneukwu to court over the same matter.
In the suit, Nnamani reportedly averred that Eneukwu did not obtain any waiver that would allow him to contest for the position during the convention.
