It has come to my notice the news of a purported adoption of a consensus candidate by other aspirants for the chairmanship of Umuahia north LGA at a meeting instituted by Chief Obi Aguocha in his residence.
(1)I want to state for purposes of clarity that never at any point was I Honurable Chidiebere Nwachukwu invited or did I attend any meeting of aspirants by Chief Aguocha or any other stake holder in Ohuhu where Bob Agbugba was chosen as a consensus candidate.
(2) That I am still very much in the race and hopeful of victory in the primaries and will by the grace of God become the elected executive chairman of Umuahia North LGA.
(3) I stand by the decision of Ohuhu elders in council which instructed every candidate in the spirit of democracy and fair play to go to the field and contest the the party’s ticket with other aspirants.
(4) That Umuahia North LGA is made up of two sister clans of Ibeku and Ohuhu and both clans had always participated in producing who takes charge of the local Government in the spirit of equity and understanding.
(5) I therefore use this medium to encourage my numerous supporters across Ohuhu and Ibeku that I am still in the race and hopeful of being the flagbearer of our great party the PDP come Wednesday 9th November 2016.
Hon. Chidiebere Nwachukwu
