This was contained in a statement released in Enugu on Thursday by the General Coordinator, APCYC, Enugu West senatorial district, Comrade Geofrey Eze.
In his statement, Eze announced that APCYC was rooting for the Director General of Voice of Nigeria (VON), Osita Okechukwu who recently declared his intention to retire Ekweremadu from the Senate.
Eze assured that Mr. Okechukwu with his antecedents would give selfless service to the people of Enugu West and unite the zone, which he claimed had been divided by Ekweremadu’s divide and rule tactics.
He said unlike Ekweremadu who was buying Okada motorcycles for youths, Okechukwu would revamp the abundant coal deposits in Enugu State to ensure the creation of employment for thousands of youths in Enugu West.
He equally assured that;
Eze noted that Okechukwu had already initiated integrated cassava farm at Olo in Ezeagu and integrated rice farm at Aniri local government rice belt, hence hooking up to Buhari’s RRAP.“Mr. Osita Okechukwu, a Buharist, no doubt as a senator would easily key into President Buhari’s RRAP Projects – Roads, Rails and Agriculture – geared towards reinvigorating the economy of the country and generating employment.”His statement titled “Why Mr. Osita Okechukwu wants to retire Senator Ekweremadu,” read in part: “All Progressives Congress (APC) Youth Circle, without being immodest wishes to state clearly why APC presumptive consensus senatorial candidate, Mr Osita Okechukwu wants to retire Distinguished Senator Ike Ekweremadu, the Deputy Senate President from the senate.“Mr Osita Okechukwu with his antecedents will give selfless service to the good people of Enugu West Senatorial District. He will unite the zone which has been divided by Senator Ekweremadu’s divide and rule tactics. The appointments Okechukwu influenced so far in the district went to Awgu – Mr. Titus Okolo, Commissioner ICPC, Oji River – Polycap Udah – member Board Ministry of Federal Capital Territory, Udenu, Major General Chris Eze – Ambasador to India, Igboeze North, Barister Bath Ugwoke – Member Board of Voice of Nigeria, Isiuzo-Hon. Ejike Eze, Member National Population Commission and Nkanu West – Nonye Okoro, Board Member, Federal Medical Centre.“Mr. Okechukwu will revamp Enugu Coal to be used to generate electricity and provide employment to thousands of youths. Distinguished Senator Ekweremadu never mentioned the huge coal deposit in the district in his 16 years sojourn. Okechukwu has been on this mission and it is elementary knowledge that he will facilitate the revamping of the coal deposits in Inyi, Amansiodo, Onyeama and Okpara mines, better as a senator.“Mr Okechukwu as a Buharists no doubt as a senator will easily hook up with President Buhari’s RRAP Projects – Roads, Rails and Agriculture – to facilitate the Eastern Corridor Railways, which will cover the Port Harcourt, Umuahia, Owerri, Abakaliki, Awka, Makurdi, Lafia, Akwanga, Jos, Damaturu, and Maiduguri.”
“It is elementary knowledge that he (Okechukwu) will facilitate the integrated farms better as a senator, rather than buying Okada motorcycles for our youths.“In sum, we thank Distinguished Senator Ike Ekweremadu and wish him a successful retirement from the Senate. Enough is Enough,” Eze said.
