He said at Umuahia at a meeting/sensitization of party chieftains from the 184 wards and 17 local government areas of the state that party leaders should aim at the target by mobilizing people to register as APC members.
The APC chieftain said it would be difficult to claim that APC was strong in Abia if it could not register up to one million members.
“If you love APC, this is the time to demonstrate it; this is the time for people to work for the party and not for individuals.
“We are here to encourage members to revalidate their membership and also to encourage others, including their relations, friends, and even members of other parties to come over to the APC,’’ he said.
He added that the APC had a good number of quality people, adding that those who missed the voter registration should take advantage of the current exercise to register.
“APC will win in 2023. God has ordained it and this will be done neatly, peacefully and overwhelmingly. The party’s victory starts now,’’ he stressed.
The former governorship candidate debunked speculations that he would contest the 2023 gubernatorial seat.
“I have not told anybody that I want to run for governorship in 2023. I am 64 years old now and will be 66 years old in 2023, but things must be done right. We are all working in God’s vineyard. If God says I should run for local government or be a messenger in Abuja, I will not say no. Let God’s will be done, This can only be achieved with your assistance. We are here to engage everybody. You should register everybody without discrimination, including interested members of opposition parties, We want to flush out PDP in 2023 and bring in APC,’’ he said
A factional Chairman of APC in Abia, Chief Enyinnaya Harbour, also said that “this is the time for APC to take over the state.
“This is the time for us to change the narrative and we are not joking. By the time you finish your assignment, you will know that APC has the numbers,’’ Harbour said.
