The authentic governorship candidate of the All Progressive Party for the 2019 election in Abia State, Dr. Uche Ogah, has ordered for the arrest of a factional candidate, Chief Ikechi Emenike for alleged forgery.
Ogah who made the order Monday in Umuahia while inaugurating his Campaign Council, said Emenike should be arrested to explain how he got the party materials which he used to “elect himself as APC governorship candidate”.
The oil magnet who cited a subsisting court order by an Abuja High Court restraining Emenike from parading himself as APC governorship candidate , accused him of impersonation.
Ogah submitted that since Emenike’s purported pararrel primaries was not conducted by the APC congress committee, he should be arrested to offer explanations on how he got the materials he used for the exercise.
He accused him of “forging ” the party documents, and ordered for his arrest and prosecution for perjury.
Ogah urged members of the public to disregard Emenike who he dismissed as an impostor and unnecessary distraction.
“As far as I am concerned, Ikechi Emenike has no place in APC. He is dead and buried.
“He should be should arrested for forging the party documents which he used to conduct his purported primaries.
” Ikechi Emenike was the reason APC conducted direct primaries in Abia but he was no where to be found only for him to come up later claiming to be what he is not “.
Unveiling his blue -print for the state, Ogah said that if voted into power, he would establish three state -of -art hospitals in three senatorial zones in the state , and employ medical experts from India to run them.
This, he explained, would curb the current medical trip to India by Abins , and provide the people with affordable medical care.
The industrialist who lamented the collapse of industries and infrastructural decay in the state promised to revive all moribund companies in the state if elected.
Ogah said over 60 firms had gone comatose in Abia, and promised to bring them back on stream if elected.
He said he had the national and international connection to make Abia the economic capital of Nigeria.
Ogah said Aba would be given a special attention under his watch because of its economic importance, adding that if the needed infrastructure is provided in Aba, the city can generate enough money to run the entire state.
The APC candidate said most of the projects going on in the state were courtesy of the federal government accusing the state government of laying false claims to the projects.
He also promised to transform the education sector with priority attention to teachers’ welfare.
Ogah who hinted that Buhari would be in Abia
on December 21 to flag of his campaign as well as other APC candidates in the state urged the people to vote for APC in 2019.
He argued that if Ndigbo could deliver Buhari in 2019, it would be easy for them to produce the president in 2023.
” If we can deliver Buhari in 2019, by 2023 power will come to South East.
” For you to negotiate you must come with evidence of performance. Some people say they will support me and not Buhari. But my message to them is : Don’t vote for me if you cannot vote for my principal. Buhari is the only gate way for South East to get to power in 2023″.
The event was massively attended by APC chieftains in the state including some new defectors from other parties.
