A head of the upcoming general elections, a support group, Team Emenike For AnyiChuks has dumped the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Ebonyi State.
Members of the group who were over 200, burnt their brooms and received the umbrella while declaring support for the party’s Gubernatorial candidate, Dr. Ifeanyi Chukwuma Odii (AnyiChuks), and all PDP candidates in the State.
The leader of the group, scientist Emenike Emmanuel Jeff, said he decided to lead his group to the PDP because he doesn’t want to be associated with the alleged violent characteristics of the APC.
“When I was in APC I saw the way things were going, which leads to violence, I saw the character and as a peace-loving person, I decided to leave them because they are not worthy of emulation.
“I strongly believe in the peace In PDP, and we will join hands to deliver PDP in my ward and my community and my local government“. he said.
While reacting, the PDP guber candidate, Dr. Ifeanyi Chukwuma Odii (AnyiChuks) said PDP has brought a lot of transformation to the State and lamented that its mandate was stolen by Governor David Umahi, who defected to APC in 2020.
He pledged to attend to his manifesto by ensuring that every child born in the State is given access to quality education, as well as create wealth for the people to end their sufferings.
“I want to assure Ebonyians that by the special grace of God, we will attend to our manifesto, and part of it is that every child born of this state must have access to Education.
“We will create wealth for Ebonyians so that the suffering would go, we will unite the State and end communal clashes, PDP does not kill people but APC does and other political parties do too“. Odii said.
He urged them to vote massively for the PDP on election day from top to bottom; “and when you go to vote, vote for PDP from top to bottom”. he added.
