Some members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Imo, on Thursday, called for the sack of Sen. Osita Izunaso, the party´s National Organising Secretary.
The members, who protested at the party’s National Secretariat, Abuja, with placards, accused Izunaso of compromising standards in Saturday´s local government congress in the state.
Mr Kassim Muhammad Kassim, a serving lawmaker of Nasarawa State House of Assembly, who led the group, said Izunaso was indirectly working for Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to frustrate re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019.
When asked on his business with aggrieved members of the party from Imo, Kassim said that he had “interest’’ in their problem.
In a complaint letter addressed to the APC National Chairman, Chief John Odigie Oyegun, dated May 17, the protesters also called for a fresh ward congress in Imo and other states where there were issues with the exercise.
The letter read: ´´We humbly wish to write and formally notify you of our grievances toward the recently-concluded ward congress of the party in Imo.
´´The National Organising Secretary of APC, Sen. Osita Izunaso, is bent on causing confusion in Imo to frustrate Rochas Okorocha out of the party.
´´We are not comfortable with the development and we demand that he should be sacked immediately.
´´We also want to notify the National Working Committee that Sen. Osita Izunaso is playing the script of opposition to deliver South-East for his sole interest.´´
