Southeast chieftain, Esiaga writes Tinubu over Governor Uzodinma’s alleged meddlesomeness in Abia APC affairs

By Emeruwa Chinedu Emeruwa.

A former member of the house of representatives from Abia state, Nze Chikwe Esiaga, has written to President Bola Tinubu over continued interference in the internal affairs of the Abia chapter of the All Progressives Congress by Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo state.

He pleaded to the national leader of the progressive party to call Uzodinma to order as Abia is not an appendage to Imo state.

In an open letter addressed to the President, made available to newsmen on Tuesday in Umuahia, the Abia party chieftain said “Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo state is now playing God by his incessant interference and meddlesomeness on Abia APC matters as if Abia state is now an an appendage to Imo state.

“In flagrant violation of APC constitution and the electoral act 2022 and with the connivance  of Chief Ikechi Emenike, he decided that Chief F.N Nwosu should be the unelected National welfare Secretary of the APC which was micro-zoned to Abia state.


“When Chief F.N Nwosu passed on in 2023, the same Governor Hope Uzodinma forwarded the name of Chief Donatus Nwankpa as a replacement for the office of national welfare Secretary of APC without an iota of regard for the two remaining candidates that ran for the office, namely, Chief Nduka Anyanwu and Hon Nze Esiaga (my humble sef). This matter is now before a federal high court”.

Continuing, the Abia party chieftain explained, “In every thirteen-member federal commission in Nigeria, one joint slot is for Abia and imo states.

“Both states share the slot alternatively but the present Governor of Imo state took the two positions to Imo without any regard to equity, justice and fairness.

“Now that the federal boards are going to be reconstituted, Governor Hope Uzodinma has compiled federal appointments meant for Abia state as if he is now the alpha and omega of APC in my own state of Abia”.

According to Mr Esiaga, “In light of the above, i have the mandate of Abia State APC Integrity Group to plead with you in the name of God who has brought you this far in life to please and please call Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo state to order.

“Let him steer clear off Abia APC matters and anything that has to do with Abia state as Abians have been sanitized enough to resist his plot to annex the state to Imo state”, he concluded.
