The Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige and the Director-General of National Inland Waterways, Chief George Moghalu, have been accused of anti-party activities.
The chairman of the Anambra State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Basil Ejidike, made the accusation at a press conference on Monday, Awka, the state capital.
He alleged that the party chieftains caused a crisis in the party which led to its poor performance in the Anambra governorship poll.
Ejidike stated that a disciplinary committee has been set up to probe Ngige and Moghalu over their actions during the just-concluded governorship election in the state.
The state party chairman, however, stated that any person found culpable shall be dealt with according to the letters of our constitution.”
He said: “We are seriously disappointed by Senator Chris Ngige and Moghalu who benefited greatly from the party.
“As a party, we are seriously disappointed, particularly with Ngige. Ngige is the brain behind the crisis in Anambra state APC.
“Whatever is the problem of the party has always come from Ngige because he wants to remain the leader of the party in the state forever.
“He cannot be the leader forever. Today, we have a sitting deputy governor, Dr Nkem Okeke, a serving senator, Chief Stella Oduah, and governorship candidate in the state, Dr Andy Uba.
“How can Ngige who occupied such a position some decades back continue to claim the leadership of the party in the state? It’s not tenable.
“We have set up a disciplinary committee to unravel those who are engaged in anti-party activities; including the activities of Ngige and Moghalu. Any person found culpable shall be dealt with according to the letters of our constitution.”
