APC DEMAND POSTPONEMENT OF GOVERNORSHIP AND HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY ELECTIONS IN THE STATE
The Members of “APC” All Progressives Congress Enugu State called for Government Order on Thursday 7th March, There took a peaceful protest to the Enugu office of the Independent National Electroal Commission, “INEC” Demanding postponement of the Governorship and House of Assembly Elections in the state.
The party members in the state come out in massive for the protest and led by state chairman, Dr. Ben Nwoye.
The source of this reports made it clear that this came as an Abuja Division of the Court of Appeal earlier in the day reinstated Senator Ayogu Eze as the party’s governorship candidate.
This make the Party members to move motion and demanded a postponement of the exercise to enable them carry out campaign across the State.
“We have written to the INEC; we are demanding that they should postpone the exercise. They should push it forward to enable us carry out our campaign,” Nwoye said.
Director of communications of the PDP campaign organization, Barr. Nana Ogbodo told sources that the APC never campaigned before now.
He said, “given the spate of woeful performances by some key members of the APC in the state during the last Presidential/National Assembly elections, whereof they all lost at their various polling booths, perhaps not unexpected that they would seek to rationalize the vacuity of their hitherto boastful posturings. It’s also possible that they are just intent on engaging in some farcical theatrics in order to corner off some campaign funds from Abuja.
“Yet it’s not lost on us that the last refuge of a scoundrel is often to assume that his enemies are the enemies of God! For a party which governorship candidate could not even as much as win his ward during the last Presidential/national assembly elections, it’s indeed disingenuous to seek a postponement of the election at this hour.
“Recall that before now, instead of engaging in campaigns, the APC leadership in the state had openly boasted that it would use ‘federal might’ to win the gubernatorial elections. It is therefore curious that the same party has now turned round to seek a scapegoat by spuriously accusing INEC, CBN and security agencies of engaging in the same game they are obsessed of.
“We hereby urge the good people of our dear state to ignore this infantile antics of some disembelling demagogues and troop out enmasse to perform once again their civic duty come Saturday.”
