It was an overwhelming jubilation over the weekend in various communities of Ohaji/Egbema LGA of the State when youths, women and elders of the Local Government trooped out en-mass to be supporters of Social Democratic Party ‘SDP’ rejecting the presence of APC as a ruling party in the State in a rally.
Therefore, the party publicity secretary Hon. Innocent Omai who addressed a mammoth crowd of supporters in the LGA stated that his joining the party is to fight against his people’s suffering in the hand of a bandwagon politicians of the LGA especially in ‘APC’ without anything done for the people only but calling them bad names.
He said it is also a period to remember the memory of late Chief M.K.O. Abiola whom Federal Republic of Nigeria denied victory as elected democratic President in the past through the party and whom the South-East gave their support but was denied of right to govern under the party ‘SDP’ as he won the 1993 Presidential election against his opponent Alhaji Diko Tofa of the Northern extraction.
According to him, today President Muhammadu Buhari remembered him as one who deserve Presidential honor for the June 12 general election as a re-call naturally by God despite the present situation in APC government that metamorphose to impunity, poverty, wrangle and thereafter, led off the leadership of PDP into power which indeed becomes an evidence to pay the losses of Chief M.K.O. Abiola of the then SDP as a party.
He expressed joy for the people of Ohaji/Egbema who had suspended all their dealings especially leaders, party officials members in all political ward levels of the LGA to join the party as the leading truth to recover the State and the Nation from hunger and starvation.
Omai who in the same vein, congratulated Dr. Casmir Anyanwu for his contribution and doggedness ability with actions to reform the party said his ready to do all things possible to deliver the party come 2019.
While Chief P.A Oparaji from Awarra community, a two time Chairman of the LGA, one of the party stalwarts, as well the party apex leader urged the people to give their support for the party to succeed come 2019 he stated further that his loyalty is unavoidable for the success of the party’s foot print. Meanwhile, “I did not come only for money making interest rather, am here sincerely to move the party forward”.
Adding his word, Hon. Prof. Victor Coga one time chairman NDDC and currently the party apex leader said he is opportune to be the party member, despite his personal engagement he will ensure the party takes its rightful position in the LGA and that his contribution as professional will pave way for the party through youth and elders mobilization and left with financial donation to the party.
The party zonal leader Chief Amah Denis said his outstanding support to the party is to reclaim power in 2019 which was denied of their candidate in 1993 and make sure that the party is protected in the state across LGA levels.
The Legal Adviser to the party Barr. Ugonna Onwuadika appealed to the party members to recognize that the party Exco will not impose positions of LGA, ward level on anybody rather; it must be made known to all and for the people to nominate who becomes their leader to avoid problems in future.
