His words:

“The conduct of Nwoye on Aug. 2, 2021, just two days after the congress is alien to the constitution of the party and a flagrant disregard of party guidelines for the ward congress.
“The appeal panel of the party had not sat to look into grievances of party members when Nwoye purportedly inaugurated the ward officers.
“We are carrying out this obligation in order to rescue the party from further implosion. Nwoye went against the constitution of the party which he swore to protect."
