APC kicks as Obiano sacks 20 aides for working against Soludo’s election

The All Progressives Congress in Anambra State has kicked against some government appointees’ recent sack, Willie Obiano.

Obiano had sacked no fewer than 20 aides for allegedly working against the election of the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, Prof Chukwuma Soludo, within the November poll within the state.

A letter dated July 6, 2021, signed by the Chief of Staff to the Anambra government, Primus Odili, showed that 20 such aides had already received their termination letters.

An insider told our correspondent that a lot more of such termination letters would be released before month-end.

The source said, “Those people worked against Prof Soludo within the APGA primary. They even went and assisted in conducting a parallel election where other persons were nominated as candidates of the party.

The letter from the office of Chief of Staff sighted by our correspondent ordered, “All salaries, incentives and benefits of these suffering from the dismissal be terminated forthwith.”

The letter reads in part: “I write to speak the approval of His Excellency, Chief Dr. Willie Obiano, the chief Governor of Anambra State, of the termination of appointments of the underlisted appointees with immediate effect.”

Some of the affected political appointees include Azubuike Okafor, Senior Special Assistant on Grassroots Mobilisations; Prince Onyechi Okafor, Senior Special Assistant on Lands; also as John Onyeakpa.

Others include Chika Gabriel Ibeneme, Senior Special Assistant on Media; Joseph Okonkwo, Senior Special Assistant on Project Management (FADAMA); Esedo Ruth Uzochukwu, Special Assistant on Environment; Chidi Adi Ekwenugo, Senior Special Assistant ANSSIPA; Ezekwelu Kingsley, Senior Special Assistant on Media.

The Anambra State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress, during a statement by its Publicity Secretary, Okelo Madukaife, described the sacking of the governor’s aides as despotic.

The APC said, “The sacking of political appointees by Governor Willie Obiano for supporting aspirants of their choice within the All Progressives Grand Alliance vindicates us that the government is wasteful and despotic.

“This is more so when during a fruitless bid to hide up the advanced dictatorship, the govt claimed ‘their appointment was terminated for redundancy.’

“For that number of political appointees to be redundant, the APGA-controlled government is technically dead”.
