Governor-Rochas-Okorocha-02

Imo State Governor Rochas Okorocha has assured that the All Progressives Congress (APC) will sweep the poll in the Southeast in next year’s elections. He said Ndigbo see the party as a credible alternative to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Speaking at the weekend at a reception for the APC National Organising Secretary, Senator Osita Izunaso, at the Orlu Township Stadium, the governor urged those interested in the liberation and progress of the Igbo to support the APC and remove the PDP from power.

He said PDP has no place for the Igbo and enjoined them to ignore the insinuation that APC is a Yoruba party. Okorocha added: “You should ask them how many Igbo occupy sensitive positions in the Federal Government. The only Igbo Service chief was removed. This shows PDP has no plan for Ndigbo”.

 

According to him, APC is a party of true democrats committed to a change, adding that it would give all zones equal opportunity to realise their aspirations.

He restated that he did not leave the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) for personal aggrandisement, but because he realised that the party lacked spread and acceptability needed to achieve the Igbo agenda.

The APC candidate in the last governorship poll in Anambra State, Senator Chris Ngige, said other Southeast states, still under PDP, were in bondage and needed to be rescued.

He lamented that Imo, ruled by the APC, is better than Anambra in terms of infrastructural and human capital development.

“You can see new cities emerging in the state, such as Orlu and Okigwe because of the ingenuity of Governor Okorocha. This is what APC will do in other states,” Ngige said.

The newly constituted Interim Executive Committees of the All Progressive Congress

(APC) in the South East states have been charged to carry out full mobilisation and registration of members with sincerity and commitment.

Giving the charge during the APC South-East inaugural meeting held at the Ahiajioku Convention Centre, Owerri, Chairman of APC Governors’ Forum, Owelle Rochas Okorocha, revealed that the exercise will be closely supervised to ensure that only the names of real people are registered as ‘one man, one vote’ counts in APC.

Okorocha, who is also the Imo State Governor, handed over the APC flag to each of the Interim Executive Committee Chairmen in Abia, Anambra, Ebonyi, Enugu and Imo states. He urged them to work diligently as to register 1,000 credible members in their various wards within the specified period.

Owelle Okorocha maintained that APC remains the best option for Ndi-Igbo as it will offer them the leadership positions and opportunity to actualise the much-needed reformation that brings equality and fairness in national politics.

He stressed that his position in the party is a stepping stone to generational change that will breed a new crop of Igbo leaders. “I can see uncommon promotion, progress and peace in Igbo land, Igbos must sing a new song!” Owelle exclaimed.

He urged leaders and other supporters of APC not to allow tribal differences and diversity of interest to bring disunity but rather, they should focus on the common vision of bringing immediate ‘change’ which the party stands for.

In their reports read earlier, APC National Vice Chairman, South East, Dr. Anyim Nyerere, and National Organising Secretary, Senator Osita Izunaso, both assessed the APC as doing well and the number 1 party having wide acceptance in the South East as well as other parts of the country. They said the party leaders are people of integrity who carry everyone along irrespective of challenges.

On his part, Deputy National Chairman, South, Senator Annie Okonkwo, commended Governor Okorocha for his doggedness in bringing APC to the South East, describing APC as the right platform to reach the promised land of true democracy in Nigeria.

Contributing, Senator Chris Ngige said he was in the party to preach peace which the nation needs most and urged well meaning Nigerians to identify with the party.

Taking the oath of allegiance, the members of the Interim Executive Committees affirmed to abide by the constitutional guidelines and rules of APC and discharge their duties effectively.

Responding, the Abia State Committee Chairman, Hon. Donatus Nwamkpa, and the only female Committee Chairman, Mrs. Joy Ebeh from Enugu State, promised to ensure that about 150 persons will be registered per polling unit.

Adding her voice, the APC South East Women Coordinator, Dr. Mrs. Tina Adike (Aka-kpuchiri-onwa), said Nigerian women are now strong pillars in politics and are poised to support Governor Okorocha and other APC stalwarts to bring national victory in 2015.

Also present at the occasion were the Deputy Governor of Imo State, Prince Eze Madumere; Secretary to the State Government, Prof. Anthony Anwukah; Chief of Staff/Commissioner for Special Duties, Sir Jude Ejiogu; Commissioners and other members of the Expanded Executive Council. Others were the APC Women National Leader, Chief (Mrs.) Sharon Ikpeazu, the APC Chairman, Imo State, Prince Marshall Okafor Anyanwu; and a host of others.

The leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) is set to begin a consultative visit to notable Igbo leaders in the five states in the Southeast, to boost its membership drive ahead of next year’s elections.

Speaking at the weekend in Owerri, the Imo State capital, the National Vice Chairman of the party in the Southeast, Mr. Anyim Nyerere and the National Organising Secretary, Senator Osita Izunaso, said a list of Igbo leaders in the five states to be visited has been compiled.

Izunaso said the motive is to take the massage of change, which the APC represents, to the Igbo leaders and to draft them into the effort to salvage the political future of Southeast and the country.

 

He added: “Those to be visited by the delegation, which will be led by the Acting National Chairman of the party, Chief Bisi Akande, include former Vice President Alex Ekwueme, Second Republic Governor of old Enugu State, Chief Jim Nwobodo, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu and Senator Arthur Nzeribe.”

Governor Rochas Okorocha and Senator Chris Ngige decried the disunity among Igbo leaders, saying it was the cause of political backwardness in the zone. They noted that this would be corrected by embracing and supporting the ideals of APC.

Senator Chris Ngige, representing Central Senatorial District of the eastern Nigerian state of Anambra, has emerged the flag bearer of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the governorship election, scheduled for 16 November.

Ngige garnered 63,255 votes to defeat Mr Godwin Ezeemo, who polled 9,564 votes in the primaries conducted in the 326 electoral wards in the state.

Announcing the result, former governor of Kano State, Malam Ibrahim Shekarau, who was the chief returning officer of the election, expressed happiness over the peaceful conduct of the polls.

Shekarau said that the party chose the Option A4 method as provided for in the constitution of the party.

“Because the party has the right to choose what method of election to adopt in choosing its candidate, it went forward to choose Option A4 for the election, this is to ensure transparency,” he said.

In his acceptance speech, Ngige commended the Electoral Committee and the leadership of the party for enshrining internal democracy in the process that elected him.

“What has happened today has shown that we have started our journey to the Awka Government House.

“APC has taken its root in Anambra. The journey is a very important one and we have to cross the red sea.

“My 63, 255 votes plus 9564 votes are the number of foot soldiers other party members would have to contend with in the forthcoming election.

“I extend my hand of fellowship to all of you, even those who did not vote for me.

“I want to thank you all, especially Senator Annie Okonkwo for his support and Mr Godwin Ezeemo for insisting that the ballot must be cast because he insisted on a primary election,” Ngige said.

In his reaction, Ezeemo commended Ngige for his victory, expressing satisfaction with the process.

He said that it was only fair that a primary election to take place in a contest where there were two aspirants.

Those who graced the occasion include, the National Organising Secretary of the party, Sen. Osita Izunaso, Malam Nasir El-Rufai, Dr Nyerere Anyim and Chief Romanus Egbuladike.
