52

Aggrieved members and former governorship aspirants under the All Progressives Congress (APC), for the forthcoming election in Anambra State have been described as people of “little or no political consequence”, to the party and the election in particular.

A group known as Progressive Movement for Peace (PMP), said that aspirants who defected from the All Progressives Congress over the adoption of Senator Andy Uba as the Governorship candidate of the party would not be missed.

PMP, in a statement signed by Emeka Nnebedum, its National Coordinator, said that the defecting aspirants, three in number, added no value to the party.

Nnebedum also described as fake news claims in some online medium that 12 aspirants that participated in the All Progressives Congress (APC), Anambra State, primary election for the forthcoming state governorship election have defected and were on the verge of joining other political parties.

According to the fake reports, the said defection comes after series of marathon meetings in an effort to resolve disagreements between the party and aggrieved aspirants who could not make it, to the party primary election held on June 26, 2021.

“We, the members of PMP, wish to state clearly and unambiguously that only three aspirants of very little or no political consequence have made such decision.

“They are; Chidozie Nwankwo, Ben Etiaba and Geff Onyejegbu.
” Other aspirants have chosen to remain in the party as reconciliations are still being worked out.

“We may also add that these aspirants rather than being assets to the party are baggage and which a serious-minded party shouldn’t take into an election.

“For instance, Geff Onyejegbu has some unexplained questions in his career as a military officer after being discharged under controversial circumstances”, PMP alleged in its statement.

It also added that the trio made the desperate dash out of the party because the deadline for the closure of the substitution window of names by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had passed.

“Their intention was never about service. It has always been about what they can get and the APC members saw through that,” PMP added.
