Ayogu campaign organisation vows to reclaim APC governorship ticket


THE governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Enugu State, Senator Ayogu Eze, whose candidacy was nullified by an Abuja Federal High Court has vowed to reclaim his position.

A statement, Tuesday, by Mr Okey Ezirigwe, the Chief Spokesperson of the Ayogu Eze Campaign Organisation in Enugu, states that, “our lawyers have briefed us about a strange judgment by a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, which tends to void the primaries conducted by the party in Enugu State.

“We want our teeming party supporters to disregard this reckless adventure from the bench, an adventure they knew would be discharged in due course.”

While noting that Ayogu Eze remained the governorship candidate of APC in Enugu, he stated said that their campaign would continue in full assurance that Eze, would emerge as the governor of Enugu on March 2.

Justice I. Ekwo the Federal High Court 5, in his judgment, delivered Tuesday morning, asked the Independent National Electoral Commission, (INEC) to recognize George Ogara as the party’s candidate. He criticized the committee sent by the APC National Working Committee (NWC) to conduct primary election in Enugu.
An optimistic Ezirigwe said that the movement towards President Muhammadu Buhari’s re-election and the party’s victory in the governorship elections in Enugu was still on course.
He stated: “Our train is on the move. There is no stopping this great Rescue race to victory. We are  humbled by the overwhelming outpouring of solidarity from our large supporters and ever growing support base, not only from every corner of Enugu but from far beyond.”
The spokesman said that the celebration by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its leadership over the judgment was a further indication that Eze had rattled the PDP.
He implored teeming party supporters to ignore the court decision, “purchased by a desperate political party for their sponsored agent to cause distraction” and continue with the already laid down campaign programmes.
