The group in a letter addressed to the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, alleged that Akomas is a party (APC) man during the day, and PDP at night.
The letter which was obtained by Igbere TV on Tuesday, was signed by the State Co-ordinator, Hon Nkem Akolam Kalu; and State Secretary, Barr Izuchi Nwakamma.
The group also alleged that Akomas frustrated their efforts at the last general elections by working for the governorship candidate of the opposition PDP, Okezie Ikpeazu against APC’s Uche Ogah.
The BSGSE, therefore, called for the replacement of Akoma’s name with a party faithful, failing which, it may be forced to withdraw its support for the party.
“We the BUHARI SUPPORT GROUP IN SOUTH EAST, Abia State Chapter, do hereby bring to your notice for action, the issues and challenges currently being encountered by our Great Party in Abia State.
“1. Despite the immense social economic challenges and governance inadequacies being faced by the people of Abia State under the PDP Government, it remains very unfortunate and appalling that some of our Party Leaders are APC during the day and PDP at night. This is not just unhealthy for our Party but an indirect system of destroying the expectations of our people for good governance which APC have vowed to administer.
“2. One of such persons who has covertly sabotaged the efforts of our great party in Abia State is Chief Chris Akomas. He was recently nominated as Commissioner representing Abia State at the Revenue Mobilisation Commission. Abians supported APC because of the quality of candidates we had but few leaders like Chief Akomas truncated our collective efforts at the last elections. Complete hopeless will certain permeate our State if Chief Akomas who wined at night with the PDP government in Abia are left to enjoy political positions under an APC federal government. Sir, it will mean saluting treachery, sabotage and internal party subversion.
“3. A lot of supposed leaders of our party in Abia like Chief Chris Akomas, sold out even before the elections. Some, couldn’t win their boots because they were in the pay role of the opposition PDP in that State, hence, reasons why they couldn’t win their wards.
“4. It is unfortunate that these same leaders ran to Abuja to secure their way and take up Federal appointments. If such so called leaders, had worked in their wards as APC stakeholders, the result written and manipulated in Abia wouldn’t have happened, but those results were manufactured in coalition with these APC supposed leaders like Chief Akomas.
“5. Chief Chris Akomas, has never been a true party member, never supported APC in Abia, never did a single campaign for the party in Abia, known for his romance with the Abia PDP and the State government. How come, his name was forwarded as the Abia Commissioner for the Revenue Mobilization Allocation and Fiscal Commission?
“6. Chief Chris Akomas, just like his partner, Prince Paul Ikonne, were funded by the PDP State Governor in Abia, during the purchase of the gubernatorial nomination and expression of interest forms. They both were fully paid for, by the State Governor. Paul Ikonne couldn’t hide his game with the State PDP, when on the 7th of March 2019, by 8:30pm, he took to the radio in Abia and told Abians to vote PDP instead of APC. This is on record!
1. That you use your good offices as our able and energetic National Chairman, to demand for the undoctored Ward result of Dr. Chris Akomas.
“2. That, the party should withdraw his name from the list as Abia Commissioner for the Revenue Mobilization Allocation and Fiscal Commission.
“3. That, per chance, you allow his name to go through for the confirmation in the National Assembly, you have sowed seed of discords within the Abia APC loyalists, who invested their time and resources in mobilizing Abians during the campaigns, hoping for a true change of government, but their dreams and hopes were shattered with the election outcome that was characterized with fraud, manipulations, sabotage and internal subversion.
“4. That, with his name withdrawn from that Commission, and a replacement of the name from those who worked tirelessly for the party, it will strengthened the party in Abia and restore sanity to the party system.
“We trust your show of strength which was the reason APC went this far in 2019 elections.
“We do hope that a speedy action should be taken before the confirmation by the Senate, as we are aware that the State Governor is funding his activities and will do all to pay their way through.
“Thank you our able Chairman, as we await your response.”
