Anambra election: APC sacks Publicity Secretary for congratulating Soludo

On Sunday, the Anambra State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, dismissed its public secretary, Mr. Okelo Madukaife, for allegedly engaging in anti-party actions.

Mr. Basil Ejidike, the party’s State Chairman, claimed Okelo had no authority to congratulate Soludo on winning the recently completed Anambra Governorship election during a news conference in Awka, the state capital.

According to the Chairman, Okelo was suspended in June of this year, and there is no justification for him to continue acting as an APC official.

He bemoaned the fact that Okelo came on national television recently to congratulate Soludo of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, on his election victory.

Ejidike said: ”OKelo was suspended in June this year. Someone who was suspended from the party went on air claiming to be making statements on behalf of the party and we feel disturbed. We feel that such a situation should not be allowed.

“If you are not with the party, you are not with it. You cannot be out of the party and still be speaking for the party.

“Since June 2021, Okelo has been raining abuses on APC and its leadership and to put the records straight, he has not been attending meetings and activities of the party.

“His suspension followed his indictment over his involvement in anti-party activities.

“He has since then been replaced by the State Assistant Publicity Secretary, Mr. Nonso Chinwuba in line with the constitution of the party.

“The party, therefore, enjoins the general public and the media in particular to desist from dealing with him as agent of APC. As it stands, Okelo Madukaife does not belong to APC.

“We wish to state categorically that as far as the Anambra Governorship poll is concerned, we have not congratulated anybody as the party is still studying the situation with a view to approaching the court to challenge the poll.”
