Godson explain that planned mega rally was to present new members of the party.
The new members include former governor of the state, Dr. Orji Kalu, Chidi Onyeukwu Ajaegbu, immediate past President Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria (ICAN), Dr. Sampson Uche Ogah, CEO Masters Energy and former Abia PDP governorship aspirant in 2015 election, Chief David Ogba Onuoha, MD of defunct Bourdex telecommunication and Abia North Senatorial candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, MD of defunct Hallmark Bank and brother to former senate president (Adolphus Wabara), Mark Wabara.
The Abia state publicity secretary also said the rally was preparatory to the party’s efforts to woo more supporters ahead of the 2019 general election.
“A governor is like a father with many children. He loves the children equally and shares his wealth to them without favouring anyone. APC will produce a governor and leaders that have the interest of their subjects at heart.
“We are not going to promote godfatherism, but to present candidates based on their acceptability by the people who will elect them through a credible primary,” he said.
According to an earlier report by NAIJ.com, Junaid Mohammed who is a second republic lawmaker lashed out at Atiku Abubakar describing him as a nonentity who is not genuinely interested in restructuring.
