On Friday, the Abia Central Senatorial zone consolidated the supremacy of the People Democratic party(PDP) in the state through a massively attended stakeholders meeting at Okpuala Ngwa in Isiala Ngwa North local government area of Abia State.
Speaking at the event, immediate past Governor of Abia State and Senator representing Abia central senatorial zone, Sen. T.A Orji, urged party faithfuls to support the Governor Okezie Ikpeazu led administration , warning that anyone who fights the Governor and the party will be consumed.
In his words: Okezie is the Governor and must be respected accordingly. If you take a critical look at his emergence, you will know that God’s hands are on him. Therefore, anyone fighting him, holy ghost fire!!!
“Anyone fighting him within and outside the party will not succeed. We must support Ikpeazu. We must support the party. The worst thing is to be in the party and fight the party. Don’t join the bubuyaya politicians, they are unstable.”
Senator Orji further berated those who left the party for other parties and said that they were the problem PDP faced in the past.
Chief Orji who is popularly known as Ochendo Global, encouraged party members to remain steadfast and work to ensure a massive victory for the party in 2019.
“Don’t be perturbed about those who left our party, they were the problem we had, by leaving to a new party they carried with them the problems. PDP remains the party in Abia. We don’t have competitors here. I pray that God will strengthen us and put confusion in the camp of our enemies,” he added
Earlier, the Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Chikwendu kanu advised party faithfuls to quit being greedy, stating that everyone in the party should play their individual roles without interfering with others.
“Let greediness go. I cannot be playing guitar in a music orchestra and be beating the drum at the same time. I cannot be playing xylophone and piano at the same time. The pianist, the guitarist and xylophonist all arrive at the same rhythm where we can dance. PDP has no rival in Abia state, as much as I know. We must work together for the success of the party,” he said.
Other party chieftains who spoke at the event include: Chief Ginger Onwusibe, Hon. Darlinton Nwokocha, Chief Allen Nwachukwu and Chief Johnson Onuigbo
