THE Action Peoples Party, APP, has appointed  Barr. Uche Nnadi as its Acting National Chairman. The appointment which is with immediate effect, followed an emergency meeting of the National Executive Council, NEC,of the party held in Abuja in the early hours of Wednesday.

The party in a statement, in Abuja, said the change of guard was to enable the national cairman of the party,  Ikenga Imo Ugochinyere proceed on medical leave due to what it described as his reoccurring voice infection contracted during his recent police detention.

Barr. Nnadi,who was until now the deputy national chairman of the party, is expected to oversee the affairs of the party pending the time the substantive national chairman is certified medically fit to resume duties, a process it noted, “is line with the party’s constitution in such circumstances.”

APP is one of the existing political parties after the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, axed 49 other political parties.

The party in the statement directed all state officials to report to the new acting national chairman until further notice.
