2023: APGA ‘ll take over Abia in  2023 – Oye

The National Chairman of All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA), Ozonkpu Ike Oye, has called on the ruling the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state to begin to prepare their handover note noting that his party was poised to take over the reigns of power come 2023.

Speaking during the inauguration of the Campaign Council of APGA in Abia state at the Umuahia Secretariat, the National Chairman, berated those he described as anti-democratic forces for sponsoring attacks against APGA possibly to destabilise the party ahead of 2023 elections having seen the party as a major threat.

Oye while calling on members and supporters not to lose sleep over  that Abuja High Chief judgement that ordered for a fresh governorship primary for Abia state, he further described it as a travesty of justice which cannot  stand the veritable test of judiciary scrutiny at appellate level.

He noted that Prof Greg Ibe was the product of the party’s May 29th primary, remained the authentic governorship flag bearer of APGA.

He told the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in the state, to begin to prepare its handover note, expressing optimism that APGA would take over the Abia Government House in 2023.

Chief Oye who said he had correctly predicated the emergence of three governors including Charles Soludo, declared that Professor Ibe would be the next governor of Abia state.

“On July 7, 1989, I told Dr Orji Uzor Kalu that he would be governor of Abia state and he later became governor. I also told Theodore Orji that he would be governor and it happened. I told Chukwuma Soludo he would be governor, and today he is governor.

“Greg Ibe will be Abia’s next governor. Mark today’s date!”

The APGA national chairman assured Professor Ibe of the full support of the party while urging Abians to join APGA in the efforts to liberate the state.

He later inaugurated the Campaign Council headed by former Commissioner for Lands, Dr Longman Nwachukwu.

In his remarks, Professor Ibe said he was not jolted by the Abuja court judgement because he knew it could not stand the test of time.

He said his emergence had sent panic waves down the spine of the enemies of progress, hence the many punches being thrown at him to possibly distract him.

Professor Ibe who said his mission was to give birth to a new Abia, promised that under his watch, poverty and underdevelopment would be a thing of the past.

He said that his campaign had commenced in full force, appealing to Abians who yearn for positive change to stand firm behind him.

Earlier in his address of welcome, APGA Chairman in the state, Rev. Augustine Ehiemere, urged candidates of the party, members of the campaign council and the various support groups to work in synergy for the success of APGA in 2023.
