Uche Emmanuel Nwabuisi, a Stalwart of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has urged the newly elected State Working Committee, SWC, of the party in Abia State to shun any action capable of causing division in the rank of the PDP in the State as the party is repositioning to form another government in 2023.
Nwabuisi, who doubles as founder and President, Mount Zion Youth Structure, MZYF, made his feeling known while interacting with journalists, in Umuahia, Friday.
The PDP chieftain also warned against uncovered plan by disgruntled elements to push some of its prominent founding leaders and Stakeholders to the wall, which Nwabuisi posited, wouldn’t augur well to the party and interest of the State.
Nwabuisi particularly expressed disenchantment on the continued onslaughters against the Speaker of Abia State House of Assembly, Hon. Chinedum Orji, over a visit and reconcilation with the Nigeria Senate Majority Chief Whip, Senator Orji Uzor kalu.
He insisted that the speaker does not owe anybody apology over the reconcilation and opined that the latter’s realignment with Senator Kalu would ensure rapid development of Abia state with the latter’s enormous influences in the affairs of the federal government.
Nwabuisi angrily warned that the alleged activities of the never-to-do members in the party fold especially from the Abia South Senatorial district of the State, would severely affect the chances of PDP in future election, if not checked and resolved urgently.
He further cautioned that any intentional plot to whittle down or sideline the Speaker and his staunch supporters and followers across the state would lead to bury of PDP in Abia State, opining that Chinedum Orji had made huge sacrifices which had swayed the party to remain in power till date.
The Party chieftain, who was also former President of Osinaulu Political Structure, lauded the continued maturity of Governor Okezie Ikpeazu, in view of the wicked plots by political foes within the current PDP-led government to pitch the Abia Governor against the speaker, which political pundits, seen as unhealthy, to the immense efforts of the State government to provide dividends of democracy to the doorsteps of the people.
The ex-PDP chieftain equally lauded the Speaker, Chinedum Orji, for his resoluteness and steadfastness to in his task of making laws that would positively impact on the lives of the Abia populaces.
According to Nwabuisi, “The speaker has made enormous sacrifices to keep PDP in alive in Abia. He is a man of peace, benelovence and honesty who has been making laws that have greatly impacted Abia citizenry and as well, beyond the state.
“I warn that nobody should sow seed of rancour, because, the Speaker, Chinedum Orji and Governor Ikpeazu relationship is cordial and nobody should put asunder. We can see that the State government immense actualization of numerous infrastructural projects was because of the governor’s healthy relationship of the Speaker and members of the State House of Assembly.
“The Governor and the Speaker are relating well and would not waste their meaningful time to engage in war, because, the duo have the interests of Abia at heart. That is an example that the plotters of discord within the ruling PDP in Abia State have failed. The speaker is not ready for their evil shenanigans to heat up the Abia polity”.
