The All Progressive Congress in Enugu state has sacked its deputy state chairman, Adolphus Ude, over forgery and other series of fraudulent and anti-party activities.
The party's disciplinary committee said it decided to sack Ude after finding him guilty of the offences prefered against him.
Ude, according to the committee, forged the list of the party's candidates for 2020 local government election in the state, Vanguard reports.
He collected money from the Peoples Democratic Party in the state to destabilise his party.
Ude, according to the committee, also collected money from party members to buy cow gift for the minister of foreign affairs, Onyeama. He, however, went behind to buy a goat instead and diverted the rest of the money.
He was also accused of some anti-party activities which adversely affected the party at the election tribunal in the state.
In other news, the speaker of the Abia state House of Assembly, Chinedum Enyinnaya Orji, said he goes for plenary on a daily basis with resignation in his pocket.
Orji also denied the rumour that he was planning to impeach the governor of the state, Okezie Ipkeazu, adding that the propaganda was started by those that view him as their enemy.
He added that the rumour was started by those that feel that he is a stumbling block to their peace and happiness of becoming governor without actually working for it.
Orji noted that it is morally wrong for him to aspire to become governor of the state now, saying that his father left office in 2015 as governor.
He said: "It was started by those that feel that I am a stumbling block to their peace and happiness of becoming governor without actually working for it. It is morally wrong for me to aspire to become governor of this state for now. Why do I say that? My dear father left office in 2015 as governor."
