Enyinnaya Abaribe has appealed to the Abia electorate to vote for APGA governorship candidate Gregory Ibe in honour of the party’s founder, the late Odimegwu Ojukwu.
Mr Abaribe made the appeal while speaking on the chances of APGA to win the governorship election on Saturday. On Wednesday night, he spoke in an interview with journalists in his Obingwa country home.
He said, “This is the party for Ndigbo. This is the party that Ojukwu bequeathed Ndigbo, and it is the party that takes the interest of Ndigbo at heart. It is the party that ‘Mmaya Ndigbo’ is their senator, which means it is the party to beat.”
Mr Abaribe said having won his two cases at the Supreme Court, the electorate would not hesitate to vote massively for the party’s governorship candidate.
“APGA has a bright chance to win the election. Greg has won the two Supreme Court suits, so he is free, and I do not think that the people are still bothered,” the senator explained. “I encourage our people in Abia South to come out and vote for APGA.”
The lawmaker, representing Abia South senatorial district, was reelected on the platform of APGA on February 25 for a sixth term.
