All Progressives Congress,
APC, Enugu State chapter, has
declared that it has the capacity to
sack the Peoples Democratic Party,
PDP, from the State.
This is coming amidst massive
defection of prominent PDP
members to the party.
Few days ago, reports also
emerged that immediate past
Governor of Enugu State, Barr.
Sullivan Chime, was heading for
the party.
Chime had told journalists that
PDP was dead and that it should be
deregistered by the Independent
National Electoral Commission,
Speaking at Ngwo, Enugu North
council area of the state, while
receiving a PDP chieftain, Chief
Uchenna Ozokwor, who joined
the party, the state chairman of
APC, Dr. Ben Nwoye, expressed
optimism that going by the solid
structures it had put in place in
the 260 political wards of the
state, it would sack the PDP-led
government in 2019.
He declared: “PDP will be
history in the next general election,
because APC is going to re-write
and redefine Enugu political
“You will agree with me that
APC now has presence in every
nook and cranny of Enugu State,
including all the 260 political
wards. We have succeeded in
planting the party’s machinery in
every segment of the state.”
Nwoye, who described the new
entrant as a true democrat and
grass root mobiliser, urged him to
endavour to win more souls for
the APC in the locality, especially
using the opportunity of the
ongoing membership registration
in the South-East.
The chairman also called on
other politicians in the state, to
embrace the APC as the party
meant well for Enugu state and the
South-East geo political zone.
Nwoye, who was accompanied
to the event by some state principal
officers of the party, and the South-
East zonal publicity secretary,
Chief Hycienth Ngwu, urged the
people of the state and Nigeria at
large to continue to support the
president Muhammadu Buhari led
APC federal government.
He also used the fora to advise
the newly appointed Chairman
of the Enugu State Independent
Electoral Commission (ENSIEC),
Dr. Michael Ezeugwu Ajogwu,
(SAN), to make justice equity and
fair play his watch word.
Notable PDP stalwarts in
Enugu State, such as, ex- senate
president, Chief Ken Nnamani,
former governor of old Anambra
State, Senator Jim Nwobodo,
immediate past Speaker, Enugu
State House of Assembly, Chief
Eugene Odoh, former military
governor of Gombe state, Group
Captain Joe Orji, among others,
have all dumped the PDP for the
ruling APC.
Meanwhile, Nwoye disclosed
few days ago that Chime, who
hails from Udi Council Area of
the State, was yet to register as a
member of the party in his ward.
