Prepare for defeat in 2019 – APC tells Umahi



The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ebonyi says Governor Dave Umahi will be defeated in 2019.

The party stated this in a five-point communiqué jointly signed by Mr Victor Umeh and Mr Victor Elem-Nnaji, its Zonal Chairman and State Secretary respectively at the end of Ebonyi South Senatorial District stakeholders’ meeting in Afikpo.

It said that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) led administration of Gov. Dave Umahi had failed to deliver good governance and credible leadership to the state.

“The APC Ebonyi South Senatorial Zone leaders and stakeholders deeply regret the monumental failure in leadership in the state and have accordingly passed a- vote- of no confidence on the administration.

“The administration has not only failed the people of the zone but also the entire state with youth unemployment and lack of solid infrastructure bedevilling the state.

“Our party is more prepared than ever, poised, determined and has risen to confront whatever challenges that may stare it in the face as it galvanises the people to wrestle power from PDP.

“We enjoin the people to remain calm and not to despair and we are confident of providing competent, credible, reliable and people oriented leadership in 2019,’’ the PDP said.
