The state publicity secretary of the All Progressives Congress in Abia state, Comrade Ben Godson has charged members of the party and supporters to remain calm following the court ruling that directed that Ikechi be recognized as the Party’s flagbearer.
Speaking to our correspondent in Umuahia Mr. Godson said that “the said Ikechi Emenike was no where to be found on the day of the primaries. Others participants in the process had since embraced Dr. Uche Ogah the winner. The first runner up Rt. Hon. Azubuike is currently Uche Ogah’s Deputy. The 2nd runner up Barr. F. N. Nwosu is the deputy Director General of Ogah’s campaign”.
“So the party is intact and behind Dr. Ogah. There was no notice of court sitting yesterday, court was supposed to have sat the day before yesterday but was called off due to the fact that the Judge’s daughter was being called to Bar. We are only surprised that the court sat yesterday without notice… That cannot stand “.
“We have applied for a stay of Execution and I assure that you all that come next year, Dr. Uche Ogah will be flying the flag of our party as assented to by the party and recognized by INEC”, he concluded.
