The leaders said they allowed the sleeping dog lie when it became evident that Agballah was out to running an inclusive administration but cannot continue to keep mute in the face of tyranny.

“The Chairman may wish to recall that as Chairman of All Progressive Congress National Peace and Reconciliation Committee that H.E Sallivan Chime, immediate past Governor of Enugu State had led a protest of stakeholders/elders of Enugu State All Progressive Congress Chapter against the emergence of Ugo Agaballah as State Chairman on two grounds:1) Non-membership of Ugo Agballah and 2) Controversial and irregular process of Ugo Agballah’s emergence as State Chairman.
