Nnewi – Apparently angered by the judgement of a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja against the candidacy of Senator Ayogu Eze, the governorship candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Enugu State, Enugu State indigenes residing in Onitsha, Anambra State have thrown their weight behind the embattled Eze, saying that they have decided to join him to fight the good cause he has for the State.
The businessmen who converged under the aegis of Ayogu Eze Support Team Onitsha branch, vowed to lend support to Eze to the best of their abilities to ensure that his vision to transform Enugu State becomes a reality pointing out that the two-term Senator and ex-chairman of Senate Committee on Information and Works, is not just well groomed for the Enugu top seat, but is also needed to salvage the State consequent upon the failure of the incumbent administration to live up the expectations of the people.
Speaking during their meeting at Ochanja Market Hall Coordinator and Spokesman of the group, Chief Peter Ugwuonu, said that the attention of the group had been drawn to the condemnable kangaroo judgment against Eze from a Federal High Court, wondering why APC should nominate an unknown person as its candidate against a ranking Senator who is popular and acceptable enough to defeat the incumbent governor who failed to the expectations of people of the State.
According Chief Ugwonu, “Ayogu Eze enlivened APC in Enugu and raised the hope of winning the governorship race for the party, so APC couldn’t have nominated an unknown person who has no political experience at any level as its governorship candidate when the party has an experienced, popular and well acceptable person of high political calibre who rose from the State to the National level having served as SA to the Governor, Commissioner and a Senator of the Federal Republic, so what we are saying is that the Federal High Court judgement is faulty and unacceptable.”
The businessmen assured Eze that the team is ready to mobilize support for his election bid because he is ripe enough for the job at the Lion Building, adding that they will go home and embark on grassroots mobilization in their wards and villages respectively to aid the victory of President Muhammadu Buhari on February 16, and Eze’s victory during the governorship poll on March 2.
