The Chairman of APC rally committee Hon. Iheanacho Obioma (CHOMEN) has stated that the emergence of Dr. Uchechukwu Sampson Ogah, as the APC gubernatorial candidate has positively changed the fortunes of the party.
Hon. Obioma stated this in Umuahia during a press conference to brief Newsmen on the Friday 11th January APC rally billed to hold at the Umuahia township stadium. According to him, before the emergence of Dr. Ogah, Abians had reservations about the party which his entrance and subsequent emergence has obliterated.
When asked about the performance of President Buhari vis-a-vis that of Dr. Okezie Ikepazu, Hon. Obioma stated that “President Buhari has done very well. You don’t expect him to come and pay salaries or do the job the state Governor is supposed to do. Look at the federal roads like the Enugu Port Harcourt Express road and the kind of construction going on. Our farmers today are proud to go to the farms because there is market for their products. But you can’t say that of the state Governor, who despite the Paris refunds and bailouts has continued to owe civil servants and pensioners.”
Hon. Obioma maintained that supporting Uche Ogah is not in any way doing the man Ogah a favour rather repositioning Abia and improve the welfare of the people.
He used the opportunity to invite Abians to the official flag off of the APC Abia state Chapter rally where Candidates of the party will be officially unveiled and handed their flags.
