Shortly after he was declared winner, Chief Emegha who currently the Chairman, Caretaker Committee of APC Ebonyi State, promised to redouble his efforts in galvanizing more  support for his party in the state and beyond.

He appreciated Governor David Umahi for his integrity, due diligence and legacies which translated to the peaceful, transparent and credible exercise, describing him as a father, consummate leader, a master planner and a democrat of note.


Chief Emegha who was visibly overwhelmed with joy  thanked the party members, delegates who participated in the congress and stakeholders for their patience, perseverance and determination to be integral part of process in the state.


"I am like the singing bird that said when it's grandmother would die that no body will eat, that he will go on entertaining people but unfortunately, he developed a growth in his mouth, that cannot be my portion. Your Excellency, I must say that the Caretaker Committee of APC is well pleased with you for the way you have been piloting the affairs of the Party. Thank you very much for your wonderful support so far."


While laying credence to transparent, credible and peaceful process of the congress, Chief Emegha noted that his party has remained resolute in maintaining transparency and credibility as the leading political party in Nigeria, stressing that the confidence reposed in him and other Executive members will spur them to work more assiduously to ensure that absolute peace, unity and tranquility continue to be the watchword of their administration. 


"You have shown much faith in us, even as we were serving as caretaker committee members, you were our dependable allies. For the demonstration of your unreserved support, I wish to pledge on behalf of my executives that we will continue to run an open-door policy and will do more in the area of our reconciliatory move to make sure that no other political party exists in the State because Ebonyi is APC and APC is Ebonyi State.


"We will run this administration in full compliance with the party's principles because party is supreme. We will have utmost respect for our leaders and other party faithful. Our strength will be premised on the principle of fair-play and above all, we will chart the way forward for a better Ebonyi State with our leader and mentor His Excellency, Governor David Umahi being at the forefront.


Earlier before the commencement of accreditation and voting by delegates, the State Governor Chief David Nweze Umahi poured encomium on president Muhammadu Buhari whose due diligence and purposeful leadership translated to the peaceful congress, thereby making APC an exemplary political party in Nigeria.


"Let me first and foremost congratulate our National Leader, Mr President whose pragmatic disposition has given rise to our Progressive Party, the APC. APC is a great house, a great Party. Let me also congratulate the Chairman of the APC Governors Forum and all APC Governors both those here and those who will join us in a matter of moment. Your Excellency, the Chairman of the APC Governors Forum, the Governor of Ekiti State because those of us who have joined you are not regretting it and we are at home.


"I am not only the Governor and Apostle, I am also a prophet, when my friend and Governor of Edo was in APC and I was in PDP, I prophesied that he was going to win and eventually, he won. The defection has happened and no man can reverse it. There was a mix up where somebody said he was going to conduct parallel Congress in Ebonyi State, it is not feasible under my watch.


"I want to specially thank the people at the grassroots for standing by us during the Ward and Local Government Congresses. They have really stood by the party. We will continue to live by example, we will continue to support Mr. President and I want to thank those who are here to participate in the congress and I want to assure you that we are set."


Recall that since the inauguration of chief Stanley Okoro Emegha as the Chairman Caretaker Committee of Ebonyi State APC on the 19th of November, 2020. He has deployed all available resources to reconcile members of the party, hitherto known for not having less than three factions in the state. This move most political analysts said, was the greatest selling point of Chief Emegha. His peaceful disposition and unparalleled intelligence as well as humility were why some others even the aggrieved members could not resist shelving their sword  during his reconciliation and consultation moves to make the party formidable.


The Chairman elect vowed to strengthen the structure of party towards a landslide victory come 2023, noting he will ensure he collapse all political parties in the state into APC.
