The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Akwa Ibom state has fired Ita Enang, a former special assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari, for alleged “anti-party conduct.”
In a letter dated January 24, the state working committee of the APC, headed by party chairman Stephen Ntukekpo, approved the ward’s requests to remove him.
This was done in response to suggestions made by Enang’s ward, Eastern Ward 2 in the state’s Ibiono Ibom LGA.
The letter read;
“The anti-party activities among others include his indulgence with the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Akwa Ibom State, and his willful but unlawful disobedience of the directives of our great party, the APC.
“After a free and fair gubernatorial primary election conducted by the party which he lost without showing a good spirit of sportsmanship, Senator Ita Solomon Enang had engaged in endless litigation against the candidate who won and the party.
“In the process, fully doing the bidding of the PDP to put a clog in the wheel of our progress as a party. The clandestine meetings he holds with the opposition party, the PDP, and after such meetings, drumming support for them, are not without notice by his vigilant ward and chapter officers of our great party.
“Consequently, I write on behalf of the state working committee (SWC) to ratify the decision of the disciplinary committee of the All Progressives Congress; that, Senator Ita Solomon Enang, be and is hereby expelled from the All Progressives Congress.”
