The Enugu State chapter of the All progressive congress, APC, has expressed optimism that going by the solid structures it has put in place in the 260 political wards of the state, as well as calibre of political heavyweights that have joined its fold, the party will win the state governorship election in 2019.
The state chairman of the party, Dr Ben Nwoye, made the assurance in Ngwo Enugu over the weekend while welcoming a former PDP chieftain and financier, chief Uchenna Ozokwor, into APC.
Nwoye stated, “You will agree with me that APC now has presence in every nook and cranny of Enugu State including all the 260 political wards. We have succeeded in planting the party’s machinery in every segment of the state.
“APC is going to re-write and redefine the political history of Enugu State come 2019, the self-inflicted injury by the PDP has assisted the APC in planning a funeral ceremony for the former ruling party.”
Nwoye, who described the new entrant as a true democrat and grass root mobiliser, urged him to endeavour to win more souls for APC in the locality, especially using the opportunity of the ongoing membership registration in the South-East.
The chairman, also called on other politicians in parts of the state to rise up and take the bull by the horn by embracing the APC, saying the party means well for the state and the geo political zone.
Nwoye, who was accompanied to the event by some state principal officers of the party, and the South-East zonal Publicity Secretary, Chief Hycinth Ngwu, urged the people of the state and Nigeria at large to continue to support the president Muhammadu Buhari-led APC federal government.
