Ifeanyi Odii

THE GOVERNORSHIP CANDIDATE ON THE PLATFORM OF THE PEOPLES’ DEMOCRATIC PARTY (PDP), FOR THE 2023 GOVERNORSHIP ELECTION IN EBONYI STATE, IFEANYI ODII, HAS ACCUSED THE FACTIONAL GOVERNORSHIP ‘CANDIDATE’ OF THE PARTY, AND SENATOR REPRESENTING EBONYI CENTRAL SENATORIAL ZONE, OBINNA OGBA, OF FLOUTING SACRED ORDERS OF THE COURT OF COMPETENT JURISDICTION.

ODII SAYS OGBA HAS REFUSED TO SHOW RESTRAINT AND MATURITY BY RESPECTING DEMOCRATIC PROCESSES, AND NOT TAKING LAWS INTO HIS OWN HANDS.

RECALL THAT OGBA AND ODII HAVE BEEN ENMESHED IN A TUSSLE OVER WHO IS THE AUTHENTIC GOVERNORSHIP FLAGBEARER OF THE PDP, IN EBONYI STATE FOR THE 2023 GENERAL ELECTIONS.

BUT A FEDERAL HIGH COURT SITTING IN ABAKALIKI ON JUNE 7, 2022, DECLARED ODII AS THE AUTHENTIC GOVERNORSHIP CANDIDATE OF PDP IN EBONYI STATE, AND DIRECTED THE PARTY TO SUBMIT HIS NAME TO INEC, ALTHOUGH, OGBA HAS APPEALED THE JUDGEMENT.

MEANWHILE, OUR CORRESPONDENT IN EBONYI STATE, EMMANUEL NNAJI, REPORTS THAT THE GOVERNORSHIP CANDIDATE OF THE ALL PROGRESS GRAND ALLIANCE (APGA) IN THE STATE HAS NOMINATED NKATA CHUKWU A MEDICAL DOCTOR AS HIS DEPUTY GOVERNORSHIP CANDIDATE.

ALSO, THE SPEAKER OF THE EBONYI STATE HOUSE ASSEMBLY, FRANCIS NWIFURU OF THE ALL PROGRESSIVE CONGRESS (APC), HAS NOMINATED THE CURRENT VICE CHAIRMAN OF AFIKPO NORTH LOCAL GOVERNMENT AREA, PATRICIA OBILA AS HIS DEPUTY GOVERNORSHIP CANDIDATE
