Chief Emokpaire who stressed that he was not afraid of the big names and the moneybags within the party who are also interested in the seat, said that President Muhammadu Buhari had already given the ground rules which dis-stressed money politics hence, he is unperturbed.
The aspirant said this while he addressed newsmen at the declaration of his interest for the chairmanship of the APC, even as he noted that he is the first to publicly declare.
He said: ” I am the first to declare for the office of the national chairman among all the persons aspiring and that is on record.
” we are shifting away from money politics and President Muhammadu Buhari has already outlined what is needed. I will not be disturbed and distracted by the big names and moneybags that will be contesting, as I will remain issue based.”
On the various crisis bedeviling the party and how he will check them, he said: ” my leadership will address the seeming intractable problems that becloud the horizon of our progress which are indeed traceable to the skewed priorities of some greedy and corrupt politicians.
“The good news is that the problems are man-made and not insurmountable but can be corrected sooner than later on my assumption of the mantle of leadership”. He stressed.
