The Peoples Democratic Party’s Abia State chapter claims that it has finalized arrangements to launch its 2023 campaign in order to compete with other political parties in the state.
Abraham Amah, the acting state Publicity Secretary and Vice Chairman of the PDP in Abia, told reporters at the party secretariat on Tuesday that the inauguration ceremony was crucial because it would give the PDP-led administration of Abia StaPte a chance to highlight its candidates.
Amah said, “It would provide an opportunity for the PDP-led government of Abia State to showcase its first eleven and the finest gentlemen it has assembled to rough it out with lilliputians from other mushroom political parties in the 2023 polls.
“It will also use the opportunity to present its visible scorecard based on the promises it made in 2015 and 2019, and also renew the promises which it would certainly fulfil”.
He added, “Knowing how appreciative Abians are, it is an article of faith for us that they will choose the PDP that rescued them from the shackles of poverty in the past seven years despite the economic decline foisted on them by the APC government at the centre, due to its inability to formulate sound economic policies for the growth and prosperity of Nigerians.”
“We also call on the PDP faithful to eschew politics of rancour, hatred, bitterness and mudslinging, just to teach the opposition that politics for us is not a do or die affair,” the party advised.
The presentation of PDP governorship candidates Prof. Uche Ikonne and Okey Igwe to the state is anticipated to be attended by the G5 PDP governors, led by governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, as well as Governor Okezie Ikpeazu, who is standing for senator from Abia South zone.
