Abia State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has said that the party may lose governorship election in the state in 2019, if it does not present a candidate of the Ukwa-Ngwa extraction.
A statement signed by the leader of the party caucus in the state, Chief Sam Nkire, which made available to LEADERSHIP yesterday, maintained that the only way to defeat the ruling Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) in Abia State was to choose a popular candidate from Ukwa-Ngwa.
Nkire noted that the Ukwa-Ngwa people, just like the people of northern Nigeria would close ranks once their ‘turn’ is threatened, adding that any political party that chooses its candidate from outside Ukwa-Ngwa was doomed to fail.
While appealing to the people of Old Bende not to ignore the sentiments of the Ukwa-Ngwa people of the state, he urged them to give Ukwa-Ngwa people a little more time to conclude the process of selecting a credible and popular candidate capable of defeating the PDP government in Abia State.
Nkire also stated that the reason why no serious aspirant from the southern part Nigeria is contesting the presidency today is because it is generally agreed that north must complete its turn.
