We Have United Okigwe APC – Campaign DG

Chief Maduewesi who hails from Okigwe local government of the zone, told reporters in a telephone conversation, that Mazi Clement Owunna’s exit from the All Progressives Congress, APC, has further united the party in the area, as his, (Owunna’s), Supporters have reached out to the party leadership and the Benjamin Uwajumogu for senate Campaign organization pledging to remain and deliver the party in the forth coming elections.
The campaign DG dismissed as untrue, insinuations in some quarters that the governor frustrated Mazi Clem Owunna, out of the party to favour the Speaker, Rt. Hon Benjamin Uwajumogu who is also aspiring for the senate position, stating that ‘’ the Governor having discovered the contest between Maxi Clem Owunna and the Rt. Hon. Benjamin Uwajumogu, the Speaker of the Imo State House of Assembly, whom the Governor knows has an edge and the political sagacity to deeply entrench the party in the senatorial zone to win elections, immediately waded into the matter and subsequently invited the duo of Mazi Owunna and Rt. Hon. Uwajumogu in the presence of party leaders such as Chief EJK Onyebuchi, Sir Marcellinus Nlemigbo and Owunna DG Chief Emeka Ozuomba’’.
Explaining further, he said that, entreaties made by the governor and the party leaders to each of them to change their stance and allow a consensus candidate to emerge from among them hit the rocks, as Uwajumogu, went for free and fair primaries, while Mazi Owunna, insisted on outright adoption by the Governor and the leaders of the party.
He however, absolved the governor of any complicity in the Owunna political debacle, maintaining that the governor’s insistence on transparent, free and fair primaries for the party in choosing its standard bearers was in line with the constitution of the All Progressives Congress, APC, to engender internal democracy and entrench the much needed free and fair primaries and wondered why Maxi Owunna, should be calling for adoption by the Governor in this generation and time.
According to chief Maduewesi, the call for adoption was laughable because the party constitution had warned state chapters of the party to clearly desist from adopting any aspirant as sole candidate for any elective position without reaching a consensus.
He advised aspirants to always remember that the APC is a political party with many qualified and credible people for each and every position that will be contested for, including that of the senate, maintaining that, it is the primaries that will determine who will eventually represent the party and in what capacity.
Onapuruagu, who asserted, that Uwajumogu’s senatorial aspiration was a divine one, further advised aspirants to be strong and always resist the temptation of defecting to other political parties because of adoption promises.
