The All Progressives Congress, APC, has talked about being dragged into court for non-payment of office rent in the Udi local government area of Enugu state.
This was contained in a statement made available to Latest nigeria newspaper on Friday by Hon. Osita Igwe, Chairman Udi LGA, APC. There was report that a landlord, Mr. Victor Kanaychukwu Ani, dragged the party to court over two years rent arrears.
The Plaintiff, who filed the case with suit No. MUD\85\2019 at the Magistrate court (2) Udi, presided over by Ngozi Orurua yesterday, via his lawyer, Barrister Emeka Okologbu-Njoku, claimed that the party was owing him two years arrears of rent “from December 2018 to August 2019.” But the party, led by Igwe, has come out to say that it was not owing any landlord.
His statement read:
“We wish to categorically notify the general public that the case in question has nothing to do with the authentic leadership of the party ably represented by Hon. Osita Igwe.
“The office under interrogation belongs to some persons, who claim leadership of the party despite their inability to partake in the authentic congress conducted on 19th March 2019 as approved by the national executive council of our great party.
“His inability to reach an insignificant contractual agreement with an innocent owner is a big blow to the big ones in his camp.
“It sounds so ridiculous that a group led by the former state governor, the National Vice President (Southeast) of APC et’al, has decided to embarrass the local government that gave the President a large number of votes during the presidential elections.” .
“Therefore, we urge interested people to avoid dragging our authentic leaders like His Excellency. Minister of Foreign Affairs, DG VON, HE. Ejike Njeze et’al in his family affairs. The nemesis of your Kangaroo Congress is still in action. Whoever eats a ram’s testicle will invariably suffer from scrotal hernia.
