In a surprising turn of events, the embattled state Chairman of the Young Progressives Party (YPP) in Abia State, Uluocha Nelcinn Chiemezuo, has been suspended from his position. The decision was made by the Abia YPP State Working Committee, who cited various reasons for their action.

In a letter addressed to the National Chairman of the YPP, the State Working Committee outlined the misconduct and anti-party activities allegedly committed by Chiemezuo. These include denying party stakeholders support and funding during the 2023 general elections, intimidation of fellow executive members, and abuse of office. The committee also expressed concern over Chiemezuo’s acceptance of an appointment as SSA on Revenue and Policy Formulation to Chief Victor Ikeji, a member of the opposition party Labour Party (LP).

Recall that we had earlier reported how the embattled chairman of the Youth Progressive Party accepted SSA appointments by the Technical Committee Chairman of Umuahia North lga which sparked controversy across the Abia media space some days ago.

The State Working Committee unanimously passed a vote of no confidence in Chiemezuo, stating that he is no longer fit to lead the party in Abia State. They have removed him from office, in accordance with the party’s constitution. The committee emphasized that the YPP Abia State Chapter should not be run as an individual’s personal business.

To fill the void left by Chiemezuo’s suspension, the State Working Committee has appointed Comr. Uzodinma E Nwoko as the acting State Chairman. Nwoko, who previously served as the Pioneer Chairman of the YPP, will hold the position until an election is conducted.

The YPP Abia State Chapter clarified that Chiemezuo’s actions do not reflect the party’s official stance and that they are not in any alliance with the Labour Party. The party reaffirmed its distinct manifesto, ideology, and principles as outlined in its constitution. The State Working Committee assured the public, supporters, and members that the YPP in Abia State remains strong and committed to serving the people.

The letter addressed to the National Chairman reads: “In view of the unhealthy attitudes, actions, anti-party activities before, during and after the general elections of 2023, denying party Stakeholders of their heavy support and funding of our great party before and during the general elections of 2023, intimidation on fellow executive members and abuse of office, bridge of party’s constitution (as amended in 2022) and other gross misconduct by Hon.

The suspension of Chiemezuo is subject to ratification by the National Working Committee of the YPP, led by Bishop Amakiri as the National Chairman. The committee will consult with party leaders to review the situation and take appropriate action to defend the party’s image and integrity.
