Dr Ben Nwoye, the Caretaker Committee Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Enugu State, has expressed gladness with the large turnout of members in their membership revaluation in the state.
Nwoye also said that the party would remain grateful to Chief George Ogara, a governorship aspirant in 2019 party primary for his financial assistance to the party.
Nwoye said this on Sunday at Unadu ward in Igboeze-Sourh Local Government Area of Enugu State where he witnessed Ogara’s revalidation of his membership at the ongoing nationwide Registration and Revalidation of Membership exercise of APC.
He said millions of naria donated to the party by Ogara had helped in running the party as well as taking care of logistics in the ongoing registration and revalidation exercise.
“Enugu State APC is grateful to Ogara who has shown in words and action that he is a true party faithful.
“Revalidation of his party membership today that attracted who is who in Enugu State APC and beyond is an indication that he is a dedicated and loyal party member,” he said.
The chairman used the opportunity to receive some Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) youths in Unadu ward who defected to APC and commended them for their wise decision.
“You have taken a wise decision to join APC and I assure you all, you will be carried along in all party activities and programme,” he said.
The chairman expressed satisfaction with the progress recordered in the ongoing Revalidation and registration exercise in the state.
“I am impressed with the large turn out of members to revalidate their membership as well as new people coming to register in the party.
“This is an indication that in 2023 APC member will be elected a governor in Enugu State,” he said.
Speaking shortly after revalidation of his membership, Ogara said he was proud to be in APC because of numerous achievements of President Muhammadu Buhari in the country.
“Since Buhari asummed office in 2015 the country has witnessed unprecedented progress in various sectors of the economy,” he said.
He accused the PDP-led government in Enugu State of failure in infrastructure development and empowerment of residents.
“Majority of roads, health centres in Enugu State are in very bad shapes including in my ward here, Unadu.
“I am happy that the problem of factionalism, which is the only challenge facing APC in Enugu State, has been resolved.
“So nothing will stop APC from taking over Lion Building (Enugu State Government House) in 2023, that will be when people in the state will enjoy dividends of democracy,” he said.
Ogara expressed appreciation to the state party executives, party chieftains and members of the party who came from Enugu state and outside the state to witness his membership revalidation.
