The Abia State Commissioner for Information, Chief John Okiyi Kalu has debunked rumours making rounds that Governor Okezie Ikpeazu is planning to move to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Kalu in a telephone chat this morning, told Jungle Journalist Media Limited that the rumour is only true in the minds of those who created it, for whatever motive they have in mind.
“Where is that happening?”, he responded, when confronted with the question. “We are PDP, and we will remain PDP. The governor has no such plans”, he stated.
Recall that it has been in the media that Governor Okezie Ikpeazu, former president Goodluck Jonathan, Senator Ike Ekweremmadu and former governor of Imo State, Emeka Ihedioha were planning to join the APC.
Leader of INRI Evangelical spiritual church, Primate Elijah Ayodele has sent warnings to the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Abia State on the choice of its governorship candidate in 2023.
Primate Ayodele said that for the APC to succeed in 2023, it must choose a former APGA member who decamped to APC.
His words “If APC makes use of Alex Otti, he will deliver for APC. He is the only one that can stand in APC come 2023.’’
All Progressives Congress (APC), Abia State chapter has blasted Senate
Minority Leader, Senator Enynnaya Abaribe over his recent call on President Muhammadu Buhari to resign over the worsening security situation in the country, saying he lacks the moral fibre to make such call.
Speaking at Isuochi in Umunneochi Local Government Area, the state chairman of APC, Chief Donatus Nwankpa accused Abaribe of abandoning his constituents to always abuse Buhari and charged him to publish his achievements as the Senator representing Abia South senatorial district.
Nwankpa said going by events in the past years, Abaribe lacked the moral right to ask the president to resign from office, saying if anyone should have resigned from office; it should be the senator who he accused of failing his constituents.
In his words; “Senator Enyinnaya Harcourt Abaribe lacks the moral right to ask President Buhari to resign from office. Abaribe is suffering from diarrhoea of the mouth and does not know when to play politics and when to be serious on an important national issue.
“He was not elected senator of “Igboland” as he wants people to believe, but that of Abia South. If that is the case, he should tell us what he has achieved as senator representing Abia South for 13 years now. There is no good road to his country home at Ohuru, Obingwa LGA. Abaribe should be the first person to resign because he has failed to perform as a senator. He has no constituency project for his constituents”.
