The Committee of Youth on Mobilisation and Sensitisation (CYMS), a group committed to grassroots mobilisation of youths and sensitisation of Nigerians on President Muhammadu Buhari’s achievements to ensure the victory of All Progressives Congress (APC) ahead of 2019 general elections, has called for cancellation of primary election results of Awgu South state constituency in Enugu State. Director General of CYMS, Comrade Obinna Nwaka, said this in a communiqué issued by the group on APC primary in Awgu South LGA in Enugu State, adding that Mr. Franklin Ezeugo Chukwu was the most popular, qualified and accepted by the electorate yet was robbed and denied party ticket by some cabals. He said that the supposed primary election scheduled by the party in line with Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) guideline did not hold despite the mobilisation of the Election Committee from the party office.

The party agreed to use direct primaries in Enugu State. The delegates came out en masse and were ready to participate but were disenfranchised, and we affirm that on 4th and 5th of October 2018, the generality of the party came out from the respective six (6) electoral wards to vote but the election as expected could not hold without any reason, instead a doctored list was later manufactured at the residence of Mr. Chris Baywood Ibe by the deputy state chairman of APC, Mr. Chikwado Chukwunta, without consulting the ward chairmen to find out the aspirants that are on ground”, he added.
