‘You ‘re political viruses without electoral value’, Evulogu Ibeke tells Ikpeazu’s appointees who decamped to APC

By Steve Oko


Former Commissioner for Trade and Investment, Abia State, Chief Charles Ogbonnaya, popularly known as Evulogu Ibeku, has dismissed as “political viruses without any electoral value”, some of his colleagues who dumped the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and joined the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Chief Ogbonnaya who was the Abia State Coordinator of the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, in 2023, said he was not surprised that the affected persons would leave the PDP in search of “greener pastures”

The former Deputy Chief of Staff to former Governor Okezie Ikpeazu, spoke exclusively with Wawa News Global on the heels of the defection of Ikpeazu’s former Commissioners and other appointees to the APC.

Some of the former PDP chieftains who defected to APC included former Commissioner for Information, Eze Chikamnayo; Ikpeazu’s former Chief of Staff, Professor Anthony Agbazuere; former Commissioner for Trade, Godwin Nna; and former Commissioner for Environment, Chief Sam Nwogu, among others.

They declared for the APC on Monday during a meeting at Isuochi country home of the Minister for Labour, Hon. Nkeiruka Onyejeocha.

Chief Ogbonnaya who claimed that the decampees “have no electoral values at all” warned the APC to be weary of them”lest they pollute the party”.

” All the viruses I made mention of in PDP have gone over to APC. APC must be very careful because they are unreliable. They will go there to pollute APC. None of them has political value. PDP lost nothing by losing them”.

There are rumours that other bigwigs of the PDP are on their way to the ruling national party.

Attempts by some of them to join the ruling Labour Party in the state were said to have been resisted by those who felt they would be a bad image to the party.

PDP which had been in power in Abia State since 1999 was dislodged by Labour Party in 2023 when Gov. Alex Otti came to power.
