The Ebony State Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party PDP, Barr Onyekachi Nwaebonyi has said that the defection of the Senator Representing Ebonyi Central Senatorial zone, Senator Sunny Ogbuoji from the PDP to the All Progressives Congress APC was a good omen to the party as he would have been a difficult candidate to market in the 2019 general election.
Senator Ogbuoji, a two term senator defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC) last week during South East stakeholders meeting of the party held at the country home of the Minister for Science and Technology, Dr. Ogbonnaya One.
Senator Ogbuoji who was a former commissioner for Economic Empowerment under the administration of Chief Martin Election disclosed that he left PDP following his discovery that the party is becoming a sinking ship adding that he APC has a better future and plans for the country.
The State PDP chairmen disclosed that the purported defection of the Senator to the APC is a good riddance for the People’s Democratic Party, PDP in the state adding that Senator Ogbuji had hitherto been a dormant member of the PDP and has not contributed any meaningful thing to the growth of the party.
According to him: “he had been a liability to the party. Worse still, Senator Ogbuoji has not done anything for his people. What can Ogbuoji boast of as his achievement in his constituency for almost seven years he’s been in the Senate? He has in no way impacted on the lives of his constituents”.
“It is obvious he has lost political value and relevance, and he is aware of that. That’s why he is looking for an avenue to give excuses for his failure. He knows that he has sunk into political oblivion and he is looking for a way to come to the limelight”.
Barr Nwaebonyi stated further that: “PDP as a vibrant party, especially in Ebonyi State, does not harbour dead woods. We had long expected him to leave. We no longer need him. He has in fact, been an impediment to the progress of the PDP’s journey to 2019 in the State”.
Barr Nwaebonyi described as ridiculous as statement credited to Senator Ogbuoji citing the performances of PDP governors as poor, and the reason for his defection, is noting but a disoriented view of an introverted personality pointing out that the senator has simply shot himself in the foot.
“How can Ogbuoji say the PDP governors’ performances are poor. He is from Ebonyi State and fully aware of Governor Umahi’s outstanding achievements. Even the President, Muhammad Buhari, who is of the APC attested to the fact that Governor David Umahi has performed exceptionally well, when he visited Ebonyi State”.
“I challenge Ogbuoji to show his might in 2019. He will be shamefully disgraced if by any magic he secures any ticket from the APC. In fact, Ogbuoji has made the 2019 contests easiest for the PDP in Ebonyi South Senatorial District.
