The Senator representing Abia Central, Theodore Orji, has boasted that he is a politician to beat in Abia Central given his track record of achievements and adequate representation of his people.
A statement by his Media Adviser and Legislative Aide, Eddie Onuzuruike, a copy of which was obtained by our Correspondent on Friday, said recent claims by Hon. Iheanacho Obioma about the performance and personality of Senator Orji were false.
According to the statement titled ‘Putting The Facts Straight In Abia Central’, Hon. Obioma’s assertions are “typical of the vituperations of a drowning political adventurist,” which are contrary to the realities on ground in Abia Central.
“Elections are not won on the pages of newspapers. Acho Obioma is yet to win the APC ticket amid challenges from other aspirants. If he is lucky to scale through, I am sure that he has acquired a permanent position in Abia Central elections.
“In saner climes where objectivity is the thrust for assessment, Hon Obioma would have led a delegation to honour Sen. Orji for letting the voice of Abia Central Senatorial District to be heard in National parliament. He should allow Senator Orji to face his assignment.
