…says he is diaspora Chairman
A group of APC Youth in Kogi under the auspices of The KOGI APC YOUTH VANGUARD has rejected media reports to the effect that Alh. Haddi Ametuo is the Chairman of the APC in the State, saying the party has “moved on from the Haddi Ametuo era and embraced the verdict of the North Central Zone of the Party”.
Speaking to newsmen in Lokoja after an extraordinary meeting, the leader of the group, Comrade Obasun Samuel said Ametuo cannot continue to lead the party from his “Abuja hideouts”.
“The NWC of the Party should be wary of the fifth columnists in its midst who are carrying out a personal agenda in Kogi State. The National Publicity Secretary should stay away from Kogi politics. He cannot use Kogi to satisfy the ego of his godfather.
“Haddi Ametuo has abandoned the party for close to two years now, hiding in Abuja when it was only his character that is chasing him about. He cannot account for the support he received on behalf of the party and he has been used to attack a government formed by the party in the state.
“The era of Ametuo is gone as far as Kogi APC is concerned. Anyone doing reconciliation should beg them to come and work with our popularly installed Acting Chairman who is busy mending the damages done to the Party by Ametuo and his gang. You cannot be Chairman from Abuja hotel rooms”.
The Youth Wing of the Party said APC has been witnessing peace since the removal of Ametuo and his colleagues via a document by the Zonal Office of the APC in North Central.
“As a group of APC staunch loyalists and believers in the leadership of our President, Muhammadu Buhari, we wish to register our disappointment at the way Sen. Bola Ahmed Tinubu handled his disagreement with the National Chairman of the party.
“The reason we kept mute when Sen. Bola Tinubu was made Chairman of the Reconciliation Committee was because of the respect we have for Mr. President. If not there is no one in our party who doesn’t know one of the National leaders of our party is an interested party in the whole crisis rocking the states.
“While Tinubu has never hidden his disdain for the National Chairman for standing by the truth in the Kogi and Ekiti governorship nominations, it is also on record that some of his loyalists are the people dividing our party in many states. We will defend Mr. President and the National Chairman that led us into victory”.
