“We therefore wish to thank them, the security agencies among other stakeholders for ensuring a hitch free exercise.
“We want to declare that Nkwegu is humble, peaceful and God fearing.
“His political structure is still intact since 2015 and is aggressively prepared for the 2023 elections,” the statement read.

“The party and INEC have acknowledged the outcome of the primary and Nkwegu’s candidacy.
“It is part of party politics and it should be remembered that for a man to achieve success in life, he must meet a stumbling block.
“We shall however win at the end as a support for Edon is a support for a better Ebonyi state.
“He is the best candidate amongst all and has full support and goodwill of the people” the statement read.
