ABAKALIKI – Ebonyi State chapter of the All Progressive Grand Alliance, APGA, weekend, impeached its Chairman, Mr. Jerry Obasi, over alleged gross violation of the party’s constitution and failure to render proper financial account of monies collected and spent on behalf of the party.
The impeachment took place at a stakeholders meeting comprising chairmen, secretaries and women leaders of the party at both state and local government levels.
However, the embattled chairman described the brains behind his purported impeachment as dissidents who planned to distabilise the party ahead of 2015 elections in the state.
In an indictment letter by both state and local government council executives, the party among other issues alleged that the erstwhile chairman “since last year, has never call a meeting of the party till date, collected N1.1 million, without accounting for it or rendering an account to the exco since the last convention at Awka.
