THE pioneer deputy chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Enugu State, Comrade Adolphus Ude has faulted Senator Ayogu Eze for kicking against his representation of the party as its agent during the collation of gubernatorial results in the State.
Ude was the APC agent during the result collation at the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Enugu office.
However, Senator Eze kicked against it, noting that Ude was not there for him.
But in a statement made available to pressmen, Ude also said Senator Eze erred when he claimed to have boycotted the election.
According to him, “in the point of law, Ayogu Eze does not have the power or right whatsoever to boycott an election as a candidate. It is only the party that sponsored the candidate that is empowered by law to do that. If the APC was boycotting the election, the directive would have come from the NWC of the party and not a candidate. He is not the one sponsoring the party, it is the other way round.
“In addition, myself, Comrade AC Ude, who signed the result sheet as a party agent did that as a foundation member of APC, member of Enugu State caucus of APC and a pioneer deputy state chairman of APC Enugu State. I did not do that as a factional deputy state chairman.”
