He said, “Yes, t. is a plot to suspend Ann Agom-Eze. The chairman and secretary of Umudomi Ward were invited by the zonal chairman (Ebonyi South) of the APC in the presence of others to sign a document purporting to suspend her.
“But we declined and insisted that we would want to first discuss it with the ward executives and stakeholders, before taking such a decision.
“Based on that, a meeting was convened comprising the executives and stakeholders”.
“I don’t think we should have done anything about it now, because the matter is already in court. And I think everything should remain the way it’s until the court determines the matter. We are law-abiding party people and I don’t think we can go against the law of the land.
“I don’t think it was wise for us to sign the suspension letter, because the matter is still pending in court and I will never sign such letter. I am even of the opinion that we don’t have the legal right to discuss it, let alone sign it.
“We can’t do that. Even if the APC leadership in the state considers that to be sabotage or an act of disobedience, I don’t care because all I know is that I will always do the right thing and allow justice to prevail,” he said.
In her ., Mrs Agom-Eze accused Governor Umahi and the state leadership of the party of being behind the plot to suspend her and urged her supporters to remain peaceful and calm.
“It’s obvious that the governor is behind all the moves to suspend me from the party. I call on all my supporters to remain calm and law-abiding,” she said.
In a swift ., the publicity secretary of the party in the state, Chidi Ogbuatu Simba, said Mrs Agom-Eze committed many offences that should warrant her suspension from the party. He said, “Yes, she has committed expulsion offences and breached constitutional norms.”
