The Peoples Redemption Party (PRP), Anambra State chapter has suspended its State Chairman, Mathias Aninwachukwu for two months over what it termed gross misconduct, incapacitation, barefaced and flagrant violation of the party’s constitution.
According to PRP, Aninwachukwu was highhanded, ineffectual, nonchalant, and mugger, whose style of leadership was incapable of leading the party to victory on the November 18th Anambra state gubernatorial poll.

It disclosed this in a communiqué issued at the end of its State Executive Committee (SEC) meeting held on Tuesday at Atani, Headquarters of Ogbaru Local Government Area, and signed by 10 out of its 15 executive members, and its apex leader and BoT member, Prince Chijoke Mbanefo (king of highlife in Africa).
Others were Hon Mbanefo Oranyelu, Financial Secretary; Precious Ebele Madu, Woman Leader; Anurika Anene, Treasurer; Echezona Okafor, Publicity Secretary; Okechukwu Onuegbu, Assistant Publicity Secretary; Emma Anene, Secretary General; Ugochukwu Okeke, Youth Leader; Humphrey Anaso, Deputy Chairman; Obinna Nwajagu, Organising Secretary; Chief Patrick Ezeugo, Assistant Secretary.
The communiqué enumerated the embattled Chairman’s offences to include harassment of members and executives with thugs which he often station at their meetings, running the party’s affairs as family or personal business, failure to convene statutory meetings of the state working committee and the state Executive Committee, open denigration of members of the State Executive Committee; Running the Party without approved budget by the State Executive Committee (SEC) and refusal to inaugurate and empower some functional organs of the party as stated in articles 8 and 9 of PRP constitution.

Others are unilaterally accepting a gubernatorial aspirant and attempt to make him a consensus candidate and BoT member at the same time even he was yet to be officially welcomed into the party by both the SEC and State Directorate of the party (SDP) contrary to Article 4 b of the party’s constitution, and article 5 (9) and (10 B, D,), running general affairs of the party and other sundry activities with his family and unknown persons without seeking the approval or ratification of the SEC, failure to open bank account, as well as to render appropriate accounts of the funds accruable to the party including those giving to him by the state leader and gubernatorial aspirant for the executive member and upkeep of the party, and unilateral expenditure of the party monetary and other resources.

Also listed were deliberate neglect of the SEC and SDP, and running the party’s affairs alone or in connivance with his thugs, opening a party’s official secretariat in someone’s apartment without approval of party leader, SEC and SDP, who had been planning to open a befitting secretariat with pomp and pageantry, outright hijack of the revenue source accruable to the party, and running all its affairs such as that of the state publicity secretaries office, woman leader’s office, secretary office, open polarization and factionalisation of all the SWC and SEC offices, and a host of other impeachable constitutional breaches too numerous  to mention.

The party, therefore mandated its Anambra State Deputy Chairman, Mr Humphrey Anaso to steer the ship of the party within the two months suspension of his boss in Acting capacity as constitutionally approved, urging the dethroned Chairman to obediently handover all the party’s properties under his care and appear for questioning before he could be reabsorbed again.

It further charged members of the public, INEC, IPAC, DSS, and others to be mindful of dealing with the sacked Aninwachukwu, because anyone transacting business with him is doing so under his or her own volition and not in any way for or with PRP.

Meanwhile, PRP also directed the party’s gubernatorial aspirant and others willing to join the moving train to do so by following the appropriate channel which is by duly consulting the SEC and party leader.
