He claimed Emenike was by being used to cause confusion in the state leadership of the party ahead of 2019 general elections.

Meregini, who spoke to newsmen, in a press conference held in Umuahia, the state capital on Thursday, called on the national leadership of the party and the security agencies to call Emenike to order, as his plans to thwart the chances of APC in the upcoming 2019 elections in Abia state will be resisted.

Recall that the Emmanuel Ndukwe-led faction of the All Progressives Congress, in Abia state, had last month held a parallel governorship primary election of APC which produced Chief Ikechi Emenike as the gubernatorial candidate of the party in Abia.

According to the ex-PDP chieftain, “We have one APC in Abia and we don’t have two APC. If Ikechi Emenike is relevance and he said he conducted primary that produced him as guber candidate of APC in Abia, why didn’t the leadership of the party submit his name?

“Donatus Nwankpa is the state chairman of APC in Abia State. We don’t have two chairmen in Abia. And he is the authentic chairman recognized by the national leadership of APC. He was the one that conducted the party’s primaries in the state last month”.

“Emenike is not an organized fellow. Anything that has to do with him is confusion.

“Every time there is an election, he will come and cause problems, after the confusion, he will run away. He wouldn’t even be there at the end of the day. Now, he has come again to cause confusion in Abia.”

“So, why is he causing problems in Abia? The security agencies should call Chief Emenike to order. He should stop fomenting trouble. He is trying to cause unnecessary tension in Abia, when there is no need for the tension”.

Meregini added that, “The party has settled for one particular thing. They have come out with governorship candidate that is credible, in the person of Dr. Uchechukwu Ogah. And based on that, Emenike has no ground to talk about the party”.

“After all, he was suspended from the ward to the state level. It is left for the national to do the needful by suspending him, so that he will know he is not a member of the party. And let him stop causing confusion”.

“In the actually sense, Emenike is not a member of APC. He is being sponsored by the ruling government in Abia to weaken the party. He is a paid agent.”
