The National leadership of the ruling All Progressive Congress, APC, has totally rejected and disowned the factional governorship candidate of the party in Abia State, Chief Ikechi Emenike, describing him as an agent of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
APC National Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole who made the party’s position known Friday during the party’s mega rally at the Umuahia Township Stadium said Emenike “is a PDP mole in APC”.
Oshiomhole declared Dr. Uche Ogah the authentic candidate of APC in Abia, adding that any other person laying claims to his candidature is a joker.
He lashed out at Emenike for dragging the party to court, dissmising him as unnecessary distraction.
Oshiomhole said any body who took APC to court was working against the party interest and could never be trusted.
He said APC had “rejected Emenike today and forever because he is working for PDP. “
His words :” He carries the broom in the day and goes to the Governor at night. We have rejected him “.
“Ikechi Emenike is APC in the day and PDP at night. He betray me in the secret and I will betray him in public.
“You can’t be holding broom in the day and be visiting the PDP governor at night collecting money from Ikpeazu to make sure you keep APC busy in court.
“I am Adams Oshomhole, I will make sure Emenike did not see the light of the day in politics.
“No reasonable APC member will complain (about) the type of primaries we conducted in Abia state.
“We conducted direct primaries which Dr Uche Ogah won. And I assure all of you Uche Ogah is the next governor of Abia state”.
Oshiomhole urged Abians to support Ogah for the forthcoming governorship poll describing him as the “new hope of Abia “.
