Stakeholders of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Ikwuano LGA of Abia State have warned the Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike against dabbling into the party politics of Abia State, saying that he should restrict himself to the politics of his own state.

Addressing newsmen on Tuesday in reaction to Wike’s accusation that the National Organising Secretary of PDP, Col Austin Akobundu (Rtd) denied a Federal House Member in Abia State, Hon Sam Onuigbo from producing the Exco of his Ward, a development that made him (Onuigbo) to decamp to the All Progressives Congress, the stakeholders led by Rear Admiral Ralph Osondu said Gov Wike was not properly informed on how the last PDP congresses were conducted in Abia State in 2018.

Osondo, flanked by other PDP Stakeholders in Ikwuano LGA informed that Hon Sam Onuigbo who decamped to the APC left because of his personal ambition and not because of the Ward Congress conducted in the LGA, “as there was no contention in Ward Congress in Ikwuano LGA during the period”.

“To this premise, Wike grossly misfired. We, the PDP stakeholders in Ikwuano, wish to state categorically that Governor Wike was not properly informed on the conduct of the last PDP Ward Congresses in Abia State.

“From his statement, he appeared to be confused on which Ward Col Akobundu (Rtd) prevented a Federal House Member from producing his Ward Exco. To show how uninformed he was, Gov. Wike could not ascertain whether the Federal House Member was still in the PDP or not”, the leaders stated.

According to them the Ward Congress of PDP in Ikwuano LGA and indeed in Abia State was held according to the PDP’s Constitution, as a result of which, they stressed, it was adjudged free, fair, hitch-free and peaceful.

Rear Admiral said, “The Ward Congress of PDP in Ikwuano LGA and indeed in Abia State was held according to the PDP’s Constitution; hence its hitch-free and peaceful outcome. Surprisingly, at the LGA level, Hon Onuigbo held a parallel Congress which was rejected by the party.

“He subsequently dragged the Party to Court and lost. He never appealed the judgment of the Honourable Justice C O Onyeabo. Meanwhile, all efforts to make him see the reasons during that period failed. All we heard later was that he had decamped to APC at the floor of the House of Representatives”.

“On the basis of the above, His Excellency Gov. Nysom Wike is hereby invited to note that Ikwuano LGA conducted its last PDP Congresses in an orderly manner without external interference either from Col Akobundu or any other political leader in Abia State.

“We therefore strongly advise His Excellency, Gov. Nyesom Wike to desist from interfering in the political affairs of Ikwuano LGA in particular and Abia State in general.

“For the fact that Abia State has a sitting Governor who is the Leader of the party in the state, Gov. Wike is therefore advised to restrict himself to the political affairs of Rivers State and stop dabbling into issues he is not properly informed of in other states”, he said.

Contributing, a former Transition Chairman of Ikwuano LGA, Chief Henry Nwoha insisted that Hon did not decamp from PDP because of the party’s Congress, but because “he wanted to impose the Ikwuano Local Government leadership on the rest of the people”.Restrict Your Governance To Rivers, Abia PDP Elders Tell Wike
