The Chairman of the Action Alliance party, Chief Barr Kenneth Obidiche Udeze has described as an inconsequential the entire allegation leveled against him by some members of his party.
Barrister Udeze who spoke in an interview with some reporters in Abuja yesterday explained that some money bag politicians with no vision and concept for both the party and themselves are those behind his ordeal promising to follow due process in handling the matter.
According to the Chairman, “we have been waiting for the operatives of the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) to visit us on the matter; we have not seen any because he who alleges must prove,” he said.
The Chairman further call on his teaming party members and supporters across the country and beyond to disregard the allegation made against him by some party members stressing that the fact on the ground shall vindicate him at the end of the day.
Barr Udeze who is also a the Secretary Contact and Mobilization Committee for the Coalition of Political Parties(CUPP) alleged that soon after his emergence as the Chairman of the Action Alliance in April 8th 2017, he had made frantic effort to ensure transparency in the party disclosing that ,they have only one account in the Bank as a political party and that throughout this period, the only money that has been deposited into the account was N10million which include the N7million transferred by their former Gubernatorial candidate and other members of the state Houses of Assembly hopefuls in Imo state.
He wondered why such an inconsequential allegation should have been made by some people who claimed to have been his party members when all funds and expenditures must be approved by the party NEC as enshrined in the party’s constitution.
He further accused some of his party members from Imo state as the perpetrators and mastermind of the accusation against him alleging that “they wanted double ration” from the ruling party which is against their party’s constitution.
On the way forward, the chairman disclosed that all those involved in the allegation against him have been suspended by the highest decision making body of his party pending further investigation that may lead to their final expulsion from the party.
