Abuja (Sundiata Post) – Foundation members of the State chapter of the All-Progressives Congress, (APC) have called on President Muhammadu Buhari to Save their Soul from imposition of a consensus candidate by Senator Ken Nnamani and Co.

The group said the move is a deliberate attempt to shut out APC foundation legacy members in State and therefore urged president Buhari to intervene to save the situation.

Speaking to in on Sunday, after their Zoom meeting, the publicity secretary Mrs Kate Ofor, said that the party at the meeting had resolved to call on President Muhammadu Buhari, to Save their Soul from Senator Ken Nnamani and Co; who to shut out APC foundation legacy members in State.

“Foundation members of APC in the State have gradually improved the electoral fortunes of our great party from 2015 to 2019 general elections; we need to improve more especially with the registration of new members.

However, we wish to appeal that the flagrant breach of Article 20 of the APC Constitution by Senator Ken Nnamani’s imposition called consensus to be urgently addressed before the October 2, 2021, State Congress.”

Mrs Ofor quipped, “Our core resolution in the meeting is to call on Mr President who is the leader of our great party to SOS! SOS! SOS!”

“Our understanding is that Senator Ken Nnamani and Co’s devious plan is to SHUT OUT APC foundation legacy members in State.”
Asked why there’s no noise from the other states like in Enugu State?

Mrs Ofor answered, “I don’t know. The danger is that we are in a liberal democracy where some might keep quiet and their marginalized members’ votes may not. This is why we are calling on Mr President to come to our rescue”.

“His Excellency, M.M.Buni as a foundation legacy member knows how we toiled, sweated and sacrificed to build the Brand APC. While Nnamani and Co were in PDP’s Comfort Zone.

We also need Buni’s deft reconciliation tactics. For Nnamani and Co did not bring anything to the table, neither electoral value nor people nor money.”

On the new Reconciliation Committee headed by Senator Adamu Abdullahi, Mrs Ofor said;

“We have nothing against Distinguished Senator Adamu; but there is a Big Elephant in the Committee, Senator Nnamani’s handgun surrogate is posted there. He is His Excellency, Sullivan Chime a product of imposition. He was imposed as a governor by Distinguished Senator Chimaroke Nnamani, so for him, imposition is consensus.”

“Secondly, we resolved for the purposes of the State Congress to clarify the position we took in June after the Distinguished Senator Jonathan Zwingina led Registration and Revalidation Panel that;

“We hereby clarify that all party zoned to the East Senatorial District is now zoned to West Senatorial District and all-party offices zoned to the West is now zoned to the North Senatorial District and all those zoned to North is now zoned to East Senatorial District.”

You will recall that in 2014, the APC Enugu State zoned party offices thus: –
