A prominent chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Abia State Comrade Uche Nwabuisi Emmanuel, has sued for peace and unity among leaders and members of the party in the State.
Nwabuisi, founder and President, Mount Zion Youth Forum,(MZYF), condemned the continued media attacks against the person of Rt. Hon. Chinedum Orji, the Speaker of the Abia State House of Assembly, by those he described as “unscrupulous elements” within and outside the PDP fold, stating that the Speaker has made tremendous feets in complementing the efforts of the present administration under Governor Okezie Ikpeazu delivered on its electoral promise.
The PDP Stalwart warned disgruntled opposition elements to desist from their unhealthy act of fanning embers of discord among leaders in Abia State, lauded Rt. Hon. Chinedum Orji, for his giant strides ranging from youth empowerment, job creation, scholarship to indigent Abia students, and attraction of infrastructural projects in Umuahia central state constituency.
Nwabuisi asserted that the gains made so far by the speaker, Hon. Chinedum Orji had superceded that of his predecessors, and further lauded the peaceful and united collaboration of the current members of the State Assembly with the Executive arm, which according to him, have placed Abia among comity of developed states in the federation.
The Party chieftain who is popularly known as “Gadagwo” in the Abia political circle, noted the untiring spirits of the Speaker in bringing dividends of democracy to his Umuahia central constituents, urging the Abia Assembly leader to remain resolute, undeterred and ignore the unnecessary antics of the oppositions to heat up the Abia polity.
According to Nwabuisi, “I discovered that there are certain bunch of disgruntled elements that feel happy in beating war drum among our leaders. It is an obvious facts that Rt. Hon. Chinedum Orji, in his usual meekness and tolerance accommodated all irrespective of political affiliations, but, we will not condone any further onslaughter against our ebullient speaker. Hon Orji and the Governor have shown exemplary leadership since assumption of office, which others failed to exhibit.
“You can see with your two open eyes that the Speaker’s unprecedented achievements has particularly changed the lives of many youths not only in his constituency, but Abia as a whole. Abians will not relent in their continued supports to the present leaderships of Abia House of Assembly that had complemented the efforts of the Governor, through numerous legislations.
“Again, no amount of media propaganda, character assissination and name calling will stop our speaking and expectional speaker in his quest to provide good governance to the masses through lawmaking. Nobody can match him, because, he has performed excellently. His marvelous and excellent achievements in all facets of governance in Abia state is intimidating the oppositions. The oppositions have nothing to offer, only fanning embers of disintegration where ever they set their foots. I urge the speaker (Ikuku Abia) to continue to ignore the evil machinations of never-to do-well individuals that flooded in Abia political space”.
