APC Chieftain and aspirant to Abia South Senatorial seat, Engr. Chinedu Onyeizu has reacted to the scores of defection in the National Assembly yesterday.
In a brief chat with Newsmen this morning Engr. Onyeizu expressed shock at the celebration that followed the defections. According to him, “these incessant cross carpeting only ends of weakening our political system. Have you ever heard an American Democrat say he has become a Republican? It goes to show that we are learning little from the democracies we copy”.
“These moves goes a long way to show that we still have a long way to go, it also reveals the level of desperation and the weakness in the character of the defectors, and some of those who occupy sensitive positions, because these are lawmakers who merely joined APC few years ago, they left not because of any problem within the party but because of their ‘sit tight’ disposition, selfishness and desperation”.
He further urged the party to put their house in order as the defection created room for the discovery of New and younger leaders.
According to him “It is even better that they struck now that we are still several months away to the general election, at least it gives the party room to fill any possible vacuum their exit may have created before the general elections”.
He further admonished the party leadership to always gauge people strength of Character even as the Party primaries approach, before reposing trust and any tangible responsibility on them!
Engr. Onyeizu urged young persons to utilize this window of opportunity to launch themselves into the political space through the APC as the party still remains the party to beat come 2019!
