Enugu APC Rejects Onyeama’s Renomination In Ministerial List

The All Progressives Congress, APC, Enugu State chapter, has expressed displeasure over the renomination of former Minister foreign Affairs, Mr. Geoffrey Onyeama, by President Muhammadu Buhari.

The party described the development as a “terrible mistake”.

It said going by Onyeama’s alleged abysmal performance during the president’s first tenure in office, such “character ought not to have any business in the next level second term agenda of the APC led federal executive council.”

Onyeama (Enugu) is among the 42 Ministerial nominees sent to the Senate by President Buhari, for possible confirmation
Reacting, Enugu State APC chairman, Dr. Ben Nwoye, said the development was not for the interest of Enugu State and Nigeria in general.

He posited that the ex-foreign Affairs Minister did more harm than good to APC in Enugu state during his first outing as a minister, stressing that he never believed in party supremacy.

According to Nwoye, rather, than joining hands with the leadership of APC in the state to ensure the progress of the party, Onyeama, “was busy wasting tax payers money in sponsoring crisis and sowing seed of discord.”

The chairman insisted that reappointing the former minister into the federal executive council would further destroy the party in Enugu state, because, “this is a man who has penchant for thuggery and pulling down of party structure.

“Aside Enugu state, Nigerians in diaspora, never felt the impact of Oyeama’s office for the four years he occupied the foreign Affair’s ministry seat,” adding that Nigerians were being slaughtered almost on daily basis in parts of the world, without any comment or reaction from his office.

Nwoye, also called on the upper chamber of the nation’s National Assembly (Senate), to carry out a proper investigation on the allegation of tax evasion by Onyeama.

Many states may soon express their displeasure over those nominees. It ought to be one of the best brain in each of the states chosen, but no they preferred to chose old men without vision.

  2. am sure he didnt even employ anyone or help his people financially
