BREAKING: All Progressives Congress (APC) Splits Into Three Factions—The Genius Media Nigeria reports that the crisis engulfing the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Enugu State worsened on Saturday with the emergence of a third party faction. A few weeks ago, there was little sign that the party’s feuding chieftains had patched up their differences and were ready to collaborate.
The peace pact, however, fell apart during the party’s ward congress, resulting in two parallel executives in most wards.
While the party was still dealing with that, the Ejes Gist News reports that it has split into three factions as a result of the local government congress held today, Saturday. According to reports, one faction supports State Caretaker Committee Chairman Dr. Ben Nwoye, another supports Senator Ken Nnamani, and a third supports Foreign Affairs Minister Geoffrey Onyeama.
Nnamani is said to be in one camp with former Governor Sullivan Chime, while Nwoye is in another with most of the party’s founding members, including Mr. Osita Okechukwu, Barr. Okey Ezea, Emperor Baywood Ibeh, and others.
The local government congress, for example, produced Felix Okafor – Osita Okechukwu faction, Onyeka Nwabisi, Minister, Onyeama’s faction, and Hyacinth Abala, Chime’s faction in Udi Local Government. The storey is said to be nearly identical in all of the state’s 17 local government areas.
