All is not well within the camp of the All Progressive Congress, APC, in Enugu state following an alleged slapping of Enugu APC Guber candidate Mr. Okey Ezea, in the just concluded Governorship polls by a chieftain of the party who is also the APC National Vice-Chairman, South-East, Mr. Emma Eneukwu; the incident this medium gathered was as a result of an argument over ministerial slot in incoming administration.
In text message sent to journalists on Friday it was gathered that the alleged act took place on Thursday at a meeting of the South-East APC leaders at the Imo State Governor’s lodge in Abuja.
According to the text message it reads thus; “Emma Eneukwu slapped me today because I told South-East leaders that Nsukka has not been minister since 1999.
“He did this before Rochas, Ngige, Izunaso, J. O. J, Gen. Eze, Ucha etc.
“I just said the truth and requested justice and equity in the affairs of our party and Enugu State.
“Emma (Eneukwu) wants to be minister by violence. Emma is from Udi Local Government Area which has been producing minister since 2007, including the incumbent, Chinedu Nebo.”
However, Eneukwu denied the allegation as he said such act never took place.
When our correspondent contacted him on the telephone afterwards, Ezea confirmed that the text message actually emanated from him.
But Eneukwu denied slapping Ezea, adding that such incident never happened.
