No Automatic Ticket For Ikpeazu In 2019 – Abia PDP
There will be no sacred cows getting into elective positions not even within the Abia state government house in Umuahia
It appears both the APC and the PDP are determined to ensure that their candidates emerge through proper party processes in 2019.
Just as some APC members have started demanding a primary for Buhari to emerge in 2019, the PDP in Abia says there will be no wavers for incumbents.
The state chairman of the party, Johnson Onuigbo said this to newsmen on Thursday after a meeting of the State Working Committee (SWC) in Umuahia.
Onuigbo, however, said that the committee passed a “vote of implicit confidence” on the governor.
Reading a seven-point communique from the meeting, the chairman said that the confidence vote was in recognition of the governor’s “excellent performances so far.”
He said that the SWC resolved “to do away with all manner of imposition and impunity” and provide a level playing field “for all the aspirants, irrespective of position.”
Onuigbo added that the SWC declared “all offices for 2019 general elections open, in line with the Abia Charter of Equity and PDP zoning formula.”
He urged all the party faithful “to remain loyal, steadfast and have confidence in the leadership of the party.”
The SWC also passed vote of implicit confidence on Onuigbo “for transparency and effective leadership”.
