Ebonyi APC mocks PDP gov’ship candidate 


The All Progressives Congress (APC), in Ebonyi State chapter, mocked Ifeanyi Odii, the peoples Democratic Party governorship candidate in the state, over Supreme Court declaration.

The Chairman of the party in the state, Chief Stanley Okoro-Emegha, stated this while briefing journalists, in Abakaliki, on Friday morning.

He said, “How can intelligent and ever conscious Ebonyi people allow a man who hails from almost the same local government area with the present Governor, Chief David Nweze Umahi, succeed him in office? The people are wiser now.

“The judgement of the supreme court has again vindicated His Excellency, the Governor who has continuously stressed the need for Ebonyi people to choose his successor based on the principle of equity and credibility.

“While throwing his weight behind the party’s choice of Francis Nwifuru as their Governorship candidate, Chief Emegha noted that APC is already cruising to landslide victory as the electorate will not cast their ballots for a candidate  who shares the same zone with the incumbent Governor hence the principle of power rotation must play out during the polls. 

“The judgement is a nightmare and big blow to PDP stakeholders as they are seriously reaching out and begging for the  chance to be carried along in the activities of my great party, the APC. Their defection will be a tsunami in the state. This is why I have been saying that Ebonyi is totally an APC state. Nevertheless, we will accept them because we cannot throw away the baby with the bathwater.

“We are deeply grateful because our strategy is perfectly and effectively working to our benefits. Anyichuk’s emergence is an added advantage to APC and Ebonyi people in general.

“It is indeed the turn of Ebonyi North and Right Honourable Francis Nwifuru is the incoming Governor of the people.  The Supreme Court’s verdict of September 14th marks the final burial of the PDP in Ebonyi State,” he added.
