A Chieftain of All Progressives Congress, APC in Abia State and a strong aspirant for the 2023 Governorship contest, Dr Chidia Maduekwe, has insisted that the crisis in Abia state APC is a fluke as the party remains majorly united as one big family, saying that Ikechi Emenike is just a professional detractor who is building his Castle in air and banking upon unrealistic figment of his imagination to think he can hijack the Abia state APC structure. The party was created without his input. He is just a professional political detractor with chameleonic tendencies.
Dr Maduekwe made this assertion when he granted a brief interview to newsmen at the end of the just-concluded ward delegates meeting of the Party at the State Secretariat, Azikiwe Road, Umuahia.
“Emenike as threat to the party remains a none issue. He is merely playing the role of a mole to distract the party, but while he is at it, the party keep waxing stronger and earning more popularity in the state, that is the best part.
“When APC was not yet popular in Abia State, I accompanied the President, Buhari to visit and campaign to the Abia State delegates before the 2014 national convention in Lagos. We have sacrificed even much more to build the party in Abia to it’s current enviable position when people in this part of the country did not believe in the party, we stood our ground.
“Will it make any sense if I insist that because I served Buhari at close quarters with few others in Abuja, the party should be handed over to me to use as I please? That is very daft thinking and reeks of greed and the highest display of insensitivity.
“APC is one big family that is big enough to contain everybody democratically, those that are intimidated like Ikechi Emenike will find themselves out through the back door wherefrom, they came. We can not be distracted anymore by flippant, unstable and unreliable fair-whether politicians without a political base.
“The world has seen, Nigerians have seen, Abians have witnessed the power and position of the people on 17th February 2022 because no matter how far lies may have travelled, the truth will overtake it. Let the harbingers of fake-faction news go and tell Ikechi Emenike that he will lose again as he had always lost”.
At this spectacular gathering of the excited APC faithful, one of the clear messages from Dr Chdia Maduekwe is that he means business as a contender and is a man that understands the game of politics and knows how to play it well.
His posters, flex banners, and other materials flooded the venue as the teening and energetic youths and women chanted his name with solidarity songs while escorting him out of the venue.
Indeed, the last APC outing has sent a loud message across that the party mean business and is ready to snatch power from PDP because their presence is now established on the solid footing of solidarity.
