ABIA APC HAILS APPOINTMENT OF NDDC BOARD NOMINEE.
Chinwe Ugele, Umuahia.
Contrary to reports of rejection of an NDDC board member nominee from Abia state in a section of the media by the Donatus Nwankpa led executive of the All Progressive Congress, in the state, the APC under Emmanuel Ndukwe has dissociated itself from such position.
The publicity secretary of the Emmanuel Ndukwe led executive, Mike Ozoemena in a statement made available to CSUNewsng.com hailed the appointment of Chief Nwogu N. Nwogu.
He described claims by Ben Godson of the Nwankpa led executive that Chief Nwogu was not a member of the party as “lie from the pit of hell.”
He said it is an act of wickedness for anyone to lay such claim against the personality of Nwogu saying, “This is most callous and a lie definitely from the hottest part of hell.”
Mr. Godson had in a press chat denied knowledge of the nominee as a known party member, alleging further that he did not work for the interest of the party in the state in the last general elections. He said their faction rejects the nomination in entirety.
Mr. Ozoemena insisted that “Ben Godson and his cohorts do not enjoy the moral justification to question the wise nomination of Mr. President having tried unsuccessfully with his clique to use someone from Osisioma Ngwa to criminally tried deceive the President that he is from Ukwa West before the wise counsel of Mr President and subsequent nomination of Chief Nwogu N. Nwogu who is a bonafide Asa Son into the immediate last board of the NDDC.”
“We know that Chief Nwogu N. Nwogu being a disciplined man must have rejected the usual extortion by Ben Godson and his criminal group who though pretended to be in APC worked openly for the reelection of the non performing PDP government in Abia State in the 2019 election and no wonder they sabotaged their so called candidate Uche Ogah to an abysmal failure.
“For the records, Chief Nwogu N. Nwogu all through this republic has gone from All Peoples Party(APP) in 1998, to All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP) which in 2013 with other parties metamorphosed into the All Progressives Congress APC. Chief Nwogu N. Nwogu is not just a member of APC but a foundation member of the party and the Ukwa West Coordinator for President Muhammadu Buhari in 2015 successful election under the then Abia State Coordinator, Dr Emmanuel Aguzie Ndukwe.”
He congratulated the nominee and also thanked Mr. President for “the excellent pick in Nwogu N. Nwogu, a decent, hardworking Ukwa West man as the member representing Abia State on the board of the NDDC.”
Recall that the All Progressive Congress in Abia state had been enmeshed in leadership tussle ever before the 2019 elections with the matter still in the courts.
Dr. Uche Ogah who belongs to the Nwankpa led faction became the minister of Mines (state) after the election with his nomination accepted by the Ndukwe led faction which has just produced the nominee whose nomination is being controverted by the former.
