“PDP Wallows In A Morally Challenging Habitat”- Senator Abaribe Reveals Why Abians Will Vote Against It
The Senator representing Abia-South Senatorial District of Abia State and the immediate former minority leader of the Senate, Enyinnaya Abaribe has alluded that the Peoples Democratic Party seems to “wallow in a morally challenging habitat”
Abaribe who featured on Arise TV interview programme, “One on One” on Saturday monitored by ALL FACTS NEWSPAPER regretted that the same things that the APC were challenged of doing were the same things that PDP were found culpable of doing.
The former senate minority leader faulted the Peoples Democratic Party’s process that produced candidates of various political offices in Abia State, noting that it was not a result of a duly followed process, and asserted that that was why he defected to APGA.
“The PDP three-man delegate that were produced in Abia, were not followed by the electoral process but by selection which even I as the minority leader then, could not say who those delegates were”
“Election of the three-man delegations and guidelines by the electoral body were not followed and adhered to in the state”
“If I know that a process is stacked against me against me, why should I continue to give credit to such process”
He accused the leadership of PDP in the state of not creating and giving him and other aggrieved aspirants a level playing ground but favored their candidates, especially, the gubernatorial candidate.
“We never said that the incumbent governor didn’t have the right to bring out a candidate but he should have given other aspirants a chance in the field”
He expressed disappointment in the leadership of the PDP and accused it of being in the same mold of what it complained about in the President Buhari’s administration.
“We complain that the government of Buhari has not been fair to all zones in the country but PDP has shown that they don’t have the interest of the South-East at heart, and that’s why I’m in APGA as it is a natural habitat for Igbos”
On zoning of the governorship in Abia state which seemed to raise dust and probably truncated his governorship ambition, the Senator opined that what Abians are more concerned about is a shift from “Godfatherism syndrome” which has marred the development of the state and not necessarily the zone the governor should come from as it has rotated the three senatorial district in the state.
He assured that he would collaborate and support the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) gubernatorial candidate to make sure that power is grasped from the Peoples Democratic Party in the state.
