PDP Defeated In Ebonyi, Says APC Chair

Chief Stanley Okoro-Emegha, the All Progressives Congress’s Ebonyi State Chairman, has declared that the Peoples Democratic Party has been defeated in the state, with its fragments handicapped.

On Tuesday, Okoro-Emegha stated this in response to the recent judgment of a Federal High Court in Abuja, which fired the state’s embattled PDP chairman, Tochukwu Okorie.

The current development, according to Okoro-Emegha, had little influence on his party’s actions, as the PDP had never been a viable opposition in the state since Governor David Umahi left the party in 2020.

He said, “Before now, only few disgruntled elements were parading themselves as a political party called the PDP, but with the court’s pronouncement today and subsequent swearing in of another person as its Chairman, it means there is more trouble among the so called individuals.

“For me, how can a political party which could not elect its leaders in a manner acceptable by the law boast of any relevance. Let me tell you that, if they want let them appoint anybody as a Chairman, they cannot win even single elective position in the state come 2023 general election.

“The Ebonyi PDP is just a group of ungrateful, barbaric, unscrupulous people seeking relevance at all cost. I have never considered the PDP as an opposition because it lacks unity, strength and organisation as a political party.

“Immediately the state governor, David Umahi, defected to the APC in November, 2020, the opposition political party died in Ebonyi.

“How can a political party without a structure in terms of leadership and also that operates from a hotel be dreaming of even a tangible success. The PDP is totally abysmal.

“If this is a misfortune or debacle, please let them sought themselves out and learn not be jumping the gun by following due process because this is not the era where the PDP was in charge of the country and was allowing impunity and abuse of process to be the order of the day.

“Just yesterday also, the PDP rats saturated the media with fake news saying that my Governor, Chief David Nweze Umahi, has dropped his presidential ambition. In a swift response to that unfounded allegation, I told the APC faithful and Nigerians at large to discountenance the rumour because it was the handiwork of evil minded PDP members who never wished the people any good.”
