We Are Joining Hands With Otti to Better Abia, PDP Leaders Disclose As They Declare For APC In Isialangwa South.

Report By, Ferdinand Ekeoma

It was an atmosphere of glamour and ecstasy on Monday the 1st day of February, 2021, at Umunkpeyi Nvosi in Isialangwa South L.G.A of Abia state as five notable political leaders and former party officers of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Isialangwa South L.G.A of Abia state led hundreds of their members and supporters to declare for the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The leaders who included Hon. Emmanuel Atulegwu from Obuba, Barr. Iyk Ogbonna, from Umunko Nvosi, Mr. Uchenna Akwarandu from Umunkpeyi Nvosi,  Hon. Nwabueze Onwukamike from Umuogele Nvosi and Pastor Ambrose Nwogbe from Ngboko Nta said they took the decision to leave the PDP because of the developmental retardation which has bedeviled the state for too long, and disclosed that they took the direction of Dr. Alex Otti and the APC because they consider Dr. Otti as a great Abian and a man of goodwill who should be supported in the quest to salvage Abia state.

The leaders expressed regret over their inability to have taken the decision long before now, and explained that their eyes have opened to the realities of what Dr. Otti had preached all these years.

 

They maintained that time had come when what should occupy the mind of every Abian is the quality of leadership being offered rather than needless partisanship and other primordial issues that cannot impact positively on the lives of Abia people, and declared their desire and determination to join Alex Otti and other patriotic Abians in the progressive move to reposition the state for the good of all.

Speaking at the occasion, Dr. Alex Otti who received the decampees into the APC on behalf of the Acting National chairman, the state chairman and other officials of the party expressed happiness that his brothers and sisters took the bold and courageous decision to join hands with him and other like minds to pursue the noble cause that would change the fortunes of the state, and made it clear that any discerning and patriotic mind who had followed his activities and humane approach to politics and leadership would easily discover that he’s not pursuing any self serving agenda having been immensely blessed by God, and called on other notable sons and daughters of the area to join hands with him in the APC and demand for an impactful shift from the old order.

Dr. Otti finally handed the APC broom symbol to the leaders of the decampees and urged them to use same and sweep away all political vices that had halted progress and development in Isialangwa South. Many party leaders were at the occasion including the Isialangwa South House of Assembly Candidate for the party in the last election Barr. Nnaemeka Otagburuagu and a former Isialangwa South LGA Chairman, Hon. Ishmael Onuoha.
