Ebonyi APC Chieftain calls for equity, inclusiveness in governance


By Amuche Agbo

 A chieftain of the All Progressives congress (APC) in Ezza South Local Governmental Area of Ebonyi State, Hon. Emmanuel Okechukwu has clamoured for equity, justice, unity among others in order to achieve the set objective of the  party in the state.

He stated this while addressing Journalists  after Governor David Umahi's official declaration of his defection from Peoples Democratic Party, PDP to the ruling All Progressives congress, APC in Abakaliki, the state capital.

Hon. Okechukwu hinted that he contested for the  chairmanship position of Ezza South Local Government Area under the platform of APC in 2017, but his mandate was denied. 

In 2019, he aspired for Ezza South Constituency in the Ebonyi State House of Assembly but could not succeed because Governor Umahi who then was
 a PDP member ensured that all candidates in the party won at all levels 

He noted that the future of the party in the state relies on the governor's ability to fulfill his promises to the old members of the party, especially those who contested when he was still in PDP.

According to him, "as we welcome the governor into our great party, it is too early to start talking about 2023, what we need is a proper plan and as well adapt the new system.

"We are in the next level now, we have to know where we are now. It's not all about 2023 but  what we do at this moment will determine how  2023 will look like."

He described the Governor's  move into the party as a divine blessing and urged him  to compensate  all the APC members in the state particularly those who contested elections  and lost considering the fact that they have invested much in the party.
