The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Abia state has reaffirmed its resolve to oust the Peoples Democratic Party PDP from the state, while rejecting assertions that the Labour Party (LP) has gained control of the South East geopolitical zone.
High Chief Ikechi Emenike, the APC candidate for governor of Abia, revealed this on Tuesday in Abuja, when he led state stakeholders on a thank you visit to the party’s National Working Committee, led by Senator Abdullah Adamu.
Emenike told journalists, following a meeting with the party’s leadership, that the APC is under attack from other parties in the state due to its current popular appeal, which puts it in a position to win the next governorship race.
Emenike said that the Labour Party are making waves on the internet. When asked if the APC is troubled by the fact that the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Obi, originates from the South East zone and seems to be making waves, Emenike stressed. They are making ripples on the internet, come to Abia and determine for yourself who is having an influence and who is not.
He noted that the state governor, Okezie Ikpeazu, has made the APC’s task easier, stating that, based on his performance, the governor has already conducted forty percent of APC’s campaigns.
“What I want to assure you is that through his (Ikpeazu’s) performances, he has done almost 40% of the campaigns for us and what we are doing is just trying to harvest most of the grounds and cover all the loopholes and work towards that.
“I know a lot of people are still doubtful, depending on the line of propaganda and information. Please before you say anything about the APC, visit your state, go to the polling units at the wards and find out the status of today’s APC and others whether we are ready for victory or not”, he stated.
Previously, Senator Adamu stated that the Abia chapter of the party had settled the early disagreements and was on a visit of appreciation to the national secretariat.
Barr. Gloria Akara, Abia APC Chairman Dr. KC Ononugbu, APC Welfare Officer Sir FN Nwosu, Abia State Senatorial Candidates Hon. Emeka Atuma, Uche Ogboso, Generals Victor Nnorom, CM Abraham, CO Okoro, and Jack Nnogbo, Sen. Chris Adighije, Sir Marc Wabara, and others comprised the delegation.
