 Abia guber Ukwa Ngwa group urges Abaribe others to support PDP candidate

Ahead of the 2023 gubernatorial election in Abia State, the President- General of OhaUkwaNgwa Congress worldwide, Bar. Chinenye Emelogu, has called on Ukwa Ngwa people to support the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prof Uche Ikonne.

Emelogu, who appealed to other former PDP gubernatorial aspirants to sheath their sword, said the same cohesion and unity of purpose that led to the emergence of Governor Okezie Ikpeazu in 2015 is needed to ensure the victory of Ikonne.

He stated this in a chat with newsmen, adding that UkwaNgwa people can not afford to go in to the forthcoming general elections fragmented.

Emelovu’s appeal is coming against the backdrop of the rancour and subsequent cracks among the Ukwa Ngwa people , resulting from the just concluded primaries of the party.

According to Emelogu, the continued rift, and division among the people of Ngwa land would be detrimental to the general interest of not only Ngwa people , but entire Abians who are desirous of having Prof. Ikonne as their next governor to continue with the good works of the present administration in the state.

“The truth and fact of the matter is that only one person can fly the PDP gubernatorial flag in the state in the general elections.

” Although so many contested the primary but at a point l happened to be among those that pleaded with some of the aspirants to step down . The intention was for us to present a candidate .

” And now that Prof. Ikonne has emerged from the exercise, I am using this opportunity to passionately appeal to all those who contested with him to rally round him to ensure his victory at the main polls. It will be in the over all , interest of the people if they the former aspirants will place the interest Abians above their personal interests at this critical moment, ” Emelogu said.

He expressed happiness that some of the former aspirants such as Ncheta Omerekpe, have declared their support for Ikonne and have gone ahead to collapse their structures for the party gubernatorial candidate.

The OhaUkwaNgwa Congress leader therefore called on others to follow the footsteps of Omerekpe and others who have decided to place the interest of the people above theirs.

He specifically apealed to Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe to forget what ever misgivings he might have with the present process and rally round Ikonne in the over all interest of the people.

“Iam not unmindful that Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe Is now with All Progressive Grand Alliance, APGA. But he can still support this course, because it is in the interest of the people. And I know him as someone who is always fighting for the common good,” he added.
