President Muhammadu Buhari, and other
big wigs of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, are expected to
participate in the party’s mega rally in Abia State.
Recall, that the Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, is an indigene of Abia State.
The State Publicity Secretary of the
party, Comrade Benedict Godson, made this disclosure on Monday, in
Umuahia, the State capital, after the inauguration of the party’s
Contact, Mobilization/Rally Committee.
Godson explain that
planned mega rally was to present new members of the party, including
former Governors of the State, Dr. Orji Kalu, Chidi Onyeukwu Ajaegbu,
immediate past President Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria,
ICAN, Dr. Sampson Uche Ogah, CEO Masters Energy and former Abia PDP
Governorship aspirant in 2015 election, Chief David Ogba Onuoha, MD of
defunct Bourdex telecommunication and Abia North Senatorial candidate of
the All Progressives Grand Alliance, MD of defunct Hallmark Bank and
brother to former Senate President (Adolphus Wabara), Mark Wabara, among
other Abia political heavy weights, who will be presented to the public
at the event scheduled to hold at the State capital.
According to Godson, the rally was
preparatory to the party’s efforts to woo more supporters ahead of the
2019 general elections.
“A Governor is like a father with many
children. He loves the children equally, and shares his wealth to them
without favouring anyone. APC will produce a Governor and leaders that
have the interest of their subjects at heart.
“We are not going to promote
godfatherism, but to present candidates based on their acceptability by
the people who will elect them through a credible primary”, he said.
