A member of the Board of Trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party, Felix Mgbada, has assured residents of Ebonyi State that the party will rescue the state from the government of the ruling All Progressives Congress.
He also declared his support for the governorship bid of Dr Ifeanyi Odii, and urged residents not to be deceived by the issue of zoning of the governorship position in the state which he said was not documented by the founding fathers of the state.
Mgbada stated this during a press conference at his Umuogharu country home, in the Ezza North Local Government Area of the state, on Saturday.
The elder statesman said, “There is no gainsaying the fact that Dr Odii had built up his name, capacity, and enviable antecedent which prepared him to provide leadership for the people of Ebonyi state.
“For the avoidance of doubt, as a respected member of the PDP Board of Trustees, let me state categorically here and now that we are done with our party primaries and all court cases arising from them. There will be no further primaries in the PDP (in) Ebonyi State.
“Ebonyi state is a PDP state and we know how our problem started. But we are now determined to recover our mandate in the 2023 elections.
“As our party, the PDP prepares to launch its electioneering , I call on all party faithful to gear up to offer unflinching and unalloyed support and solidarity to all the candidates of our great party in the 2023 elections. This is the only way to rescue Ebonyi state from the hands of the APC-led government.”
