Our party/ members are secured under Acho Obioma- chieftain

A chieftain of the All Progressive Congress in Abia State Barr. Etigwe Uwa (SAN) has assured the members of the party that they were secured under the leadership of the state chairman, RT Hon. Acho Obioma.

He urged them to forget about some members of the party attempting to highjack the party structure in the state, saying that those members were sinking already.

Uwa, who spoke during a stake holders meeting of the party in umuahia on Thursday, described the party faithfuls supporting Obioma, as heroes.

He said, "I must do one thing first and foremost and that is to declare that all of you here are all heroes. The problem with our country is that we have very few men of conviction. We have many men controlled by their personal interest.

"I'm glad that  inspite of of the issues on ground, you have all gathered here today and I must pay tribute to each and every one of you. You are here today because you stand in the place of truth.

"We were all at our various wards, Local governments and we all came for the state congress, so somebody cannot stay in his house and write fake names and say he is going to take over a party where we all belong to. 

"Why I'm paying tribute to you is that some of you could have said I'm not very sure let me go to the other side. But the truth is that there's nothing on the other side, that other side is a sinking sand, anybody that goes there will sink. 

"We have our most learned former Chief Justice here and we know that one cannot place something on nothing and expect it to stand. 

"I have read the constitution of our party and I can assure us that where we are is where the law is, I'm not going to speak much about that because we have an existing case in court, but I can tell you that at the end of day we are going to prevail, we will take what belongs to us, mark my words I'm not saying we are going to take back what belongs to us, I'm saying we will take what belongs to us, it never left us.

"We are going to enforce it, I can assure you that at the end of the day we will be victorious. I started by declaring all of you as heroes, I will end by declaring all of you warriors.

"As you all know I'm from the tribes of warriors. And all of us who are here are warriors. We are going to fight to the end. We will not be afraid because as I said before, we stand on the side of truth and at the end of the day the truth will prevail.

"We know where we are going to, we want to take back our state, and because we want to take back our state, we will not relent, well will fight to the end. I want to hail you great men and women, continue in your resolve at the end of the day we shall overcome". 

 The meeting had in attendance top party chieftains including chief Donatus Nwankpa, RT. Hon. Stanly Ohajuruka, Sen. Chris Adigije, Chidia Maduekwe, Barr. Perfect Okorie among others.
