The chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party in Abia State, Chief Johnson Onuigbo has waded into the cold between the Senator Moa Ohuabunwa, representing Abia north senatorial zone and Chief Uko Nkole, member representing Arochukwu federal Constituency.
Onuigbo who was in Arochukwu on Friday for the ongoing PDP project tour charged Ohuabunwa and Nkole to have mutual respect for each other and stop the unnecessary war of words between them.
Nkole had while addressing the party supporters in the area referred to Ohuabunwa and Senator Philip Gyunka representing Nassarawa north senatorial zone as his colleagues, but Ohuabunwa in swift reaction during his speech corrected him, saying that it was only Gyuanka that’s his colleague.
Ohuabunwa said when he was in house of representatives, he respected Senator Ike Nwachukwu and senator Uche Chukwumerije and never addressed them as colleagues.
Onuigbo in his charge warned Nkole show respect to Ohuabunwa as his elder brother, just as he counselled Ohuabunwa to also accord respect to Nkole as his junior.
He said, “Arochukwu is the envy of other local governments, Ohuabunwa and Nkole must work together to move our party forward in this local government.
“This fight must stop immediately”.
Earlier in his speech the chairman Arochukwu Local Government, Chief Kalu James Kalu, hinted that he had renovated the staff quarters in Council head quarters and a health centre at Umuzomgbo ihechiowa within the one year and five months period he was in office.
He added that his administration also empowered over five hundred people who were trained in various vocations in the area.
Kalu also said that his administration equally graded some dilapidated rural roads at Atani, Nde Oji in Abam, as well as the Okpo road in Ihechiow.
Abia Breaking News gathered that the high point of the tour was a motion for the election of Governor Okezie Ikpeazu in 2019.
The motion was moved by Hon. Donatus Okerie and second by Barr. Priscilla Umehham.
