Youths and other stakeholders in Abia South Senatorial District under the auspices of “Abia South Youth and Elders Forum (ABYEF), Sunday, gathered at Owaza in Ukwa West LGA of Abia state, to register their displeasure over the appointment of Chief Nwogu Nwogu as a Member (representing Abia State) on the Board of Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).
Condemning the nomination of Nwogu, the stakeholders faulted his appointment, stressing that the new appointee lacks the political dexterity and intellectual capacity to champion the cause of the people.
The group, while urging the presidency to withdraw the appointment of Nwogu, pointed that there are credible and popular persons, who have not only the expertise but the goodwill needed for the exalted position.
Speaking after their expanded meeting on Sunday, spokesperson of the group and Youth Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Owaza, Comrade Onyeameachi Ubani stated that the people of Abia state especially members of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Abia state chapter have no confidence in Nwogu.
Describing the new appointee as anti-APC , the group noted that Nwogu is not a committed and loyal member of the APC, adding that he (Nwogu) did not support President Muhammadu Buhari and other candidates of the APC in the 2019 general elections.
He said, “the people of Abia state have rejected in strong terms the appointment of Chief Nwogu Nwogu as a Member of the Board of Directors of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) on the grounds that he (Nwogu) lacks the administrative acumen and political popularity to champion the cause of the people.
“Nwogu has never added any value to the APC. He is fond of collecting greek gifts from Abia state government under the Governor Okezie Ikpeazu led government.
“During the 2019 general elections including the presidential election, which returned President Buhari, Nwogu did not participate in the campaign and other party activities not to talk of supporting the party with funds.
“Nwogu is not the candidate of Abia people nor the candidate of APC members. He is on his own. The people have rejected his nomination.
“We join other notable Abians in rejecting Nwogu’s appointment” .
The group, while calling on the Presidency to replace Nwogu with Hon. Kasarachi Enyinna, who they described as a loyal, committed and passionate member of the APC, added that he (Enyinna) is a financier of the party in Abia state.
