WITHDRAW FROM ANAMBRA RE-RUN, APGA URGES PETER OBI

The Legal Adviser to Anambra State chapter of All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, Sylvester Ezeokenwa, has said that if former Governor, Peter Obi, wants to retain the hard-earned integrity he built over the years, he should toe the path of honour, withdraw from the forthcoming Anambra Central Senatorial re-run race and allow the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, conduct the exercise only for the parties whose original candidates have not been disqualified, as stipulated by law.

He said it is unfortunate that a person of his calibre is being used by opposition parties to destabilise Anambra Central and keePETER OBIp it perpetually vacant, when other seats in the state and other parts of the country are properly represented by a senator. He added that whatever Obi is doing now is a contamination of his association with Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

Speaking to newsmen yesterday at the St. Faith’s Anglican Church, Fegge, Onitsha, during the  closing ceremony of a three-day Onitsha South Archdeaconry Women’s Conference, Ezeokenwa contended that rather than forcing himself to contest the re-run race, which he is not legally and morally qualified to do, he should wait till 2019 for sake of convenience.
