Tinubu Cabinet: Crisis Rocks APC Over Ministerial List

by Victor Ndubuisi

An All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain claimed on Sunday that the party’s problem is the result of a competition for ministerial positions in the Bola Tinubu administration.

According to the chieftain, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to the Sunday Telegraph, the competition over the slots resulted in the suspension of party members.

He went on to say that the party has been dealing with a crisis since the presidential and governorship elections, which has resulted in the suspension of members.

Suspensions have occurred in states such as Delta Abia, Enugu, and others.


In Delta, the NDDC Chairman, Lauretta Onochi, and the APC governorship candidate in the state, Deputy Senate President, Ovie Omo-Agege, were both suspended.

In suspending Omo-Agege, the party’s state chairman, Ulebor Isaac, on behalf of the APC’s State Executive Committee, Secretary, Inana Michael, and 23 others, unanimously resolved and adopted the expulsion of Omo-Agege as a member of the party by the executive committee of the Orogun Ward and Ughelli North Local Government Chapter in the expulsion letter.

The letter reads, “The State Executive Committee of all Progressive Congress, Delta State, in a meeting held on the 31st March 2023 at the State Secretariat, Asaba, after due deliberation of the Notice of Resolution of Expulsion of Senator Ovie Omo-Agege as a member of the party by the executive committee of the Orogun ward and Ughelli North Local Government chapter dated 20th March 2023.

“And in accordance with the provision of Article 21.2 (1)(II)(VII) 21.3 and 21.5(g) of the Constitution 2022 (as amended), we unanimously resolved and adopted the expulsion of Senator Ovie Omo Agege as a member of the party. Omo-Agege, the governorship candidate of the APC in Delta State lost to the Governor-elect, a candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Sheriff Oborevwori. Also, Lauretta Onochi was also suspended by some factions of Delta APC.”

Seven chieftains, including former Abia State governor, Dr Chris Akomas, former Minister of State for Solid Minerals, Dr Uche Ogah, former Pro-Chancellor of the University of Calabar, Senator Nkechi Nwaogu, the Executive Secretary of the National Land Development Agency (NALDA), Paul Ikonne, Hon. Sam Onuigbo, and others, were arrested in Abia State. Osita Okechukwu, Director General of VON, Geoffrey Onyeama, Ken Nnamani, former governor of Enugu State, Sullivan Chime, and others were also suspended for alleged anti-party activities.

Okechukwu, reacting to his suspension said, “The story of my kinsman Ugo Agbala is the story of a failed chairman quarrelling with himself. He came from PDP akin to a political bandit and hijacked our great party with the assistance of His Excellency, Hope Uzodinma, governor of Imo State.

“He drove all the stakeholders away and boasted he will quadruple the 56,000 we scored in the 2019 presidential election. Regrettably, he scored abysmally only 4,722. Instead of apologizing, I cited his CV flying around at the president-elect’s house and APC HQ. This is why he is telling childish lies against some of us who are foundation members of APC, who sold the only plot of land in Enugu during my gubernatorial election in 2011. Ironically then Agbala was in the comfort zone of PDP, while we were constructing the APC structure. Also reacting over their suspensions, Chief Nkire and Anyanwu said the Abia State APC governorship candidate, Chief Ikechi Emenike, must be asked to account for the campaign money.”

According to Anyanwu, Emenike did not install any billboards in the state for himself or the APC presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu.


The APC chieftain from the party’s headquarters who spoke with the platform said, “Party members are against one another because of the ministerial slots. Our party has not formed the govern 2023ment yet, members were already fighting for ministerial positions.

“All the fights you see in the party in the state are all about ministerial slots. Our party members are not interested in the state of the party or our President-elect but in the position, they may occupy in the next dispensation.


“I will advise that the President-elect should look beyond those who were governorship candidates of the party in the last elections in appointing ministerial nominees but consider merit and competence.

“Our party, whose victory is being challenged, should be able to appoint people with integrity and capacity as ministers and head of parastatals.”
