News Express reports that while the party was still contending with that, it has split further into three factions, an aftermath of the local government congress held today.
It was gathered that while one faction is loyal to the State Caretaker Committee chairman, Dr. Ben Nwoye, another group is with Senator Ken Nnamani, while the third faction is loyal to Foreign Affairs Minister, Geoffrey Onyeama.
Nnamani and former Governor Sullivan Chime are said to be in one camp, while Nwoye and most of the foundation members of the party, including Mr. Osita Okechukwu, Barr. Okey Ezea and Emperor Baywood Ibeh, among others, are together.
In Udi Local Government, for instance, the local government congress produced Felix Okafor – Osita Okechukwu faction, Onyeka Nwabisi, Minister, Onyeama’s faction and Hyacinth Abala, Chime’s faction.
The story is said to be almost the same in all the 17 local government areas of the state.
