“The Coordinator absconded from a party meeting he was invited to address APC faithful.
“All his activities are against the purpose of His Excellency Senator Hope Uzodinma to reach out to the grassroots on development.
“We also demand the immediate removal of the Secretary, Mrs Nwemeh K. J and the Accountant, Mrs. Nwadike Chikaodi, they continue to conspired with the Coordinator to siphon the ₦7M allocated to the centre.
All our interest is to deliver APC Candidates at all levels during the general elections but the Coordinator is frustrating our efforts.
“After months of our appointment and Inauguration, we are yet to familiarise with our various Communities
“We also passed a vote of no confidence on him (Echereodo)”, the Committee Concluded.
