The All Progressives Congress, APC in Abia state has dismissed the chances of the Labour Party ahead of the 2023 elections, stating that they have no impact in the South East and are only seen on the internet.
Abia APC Governorship candidate, High Chief Ikechi Emenike disclosed this on Tuesday in Abuja when he led stakeholders from the state on a courtesy visit to the Senator Abdullahi Adamu-led National Working Committee NWC of the party.
Speaking to the media, Emenike expressed confidence that the party will emerge victorious in the forthcoming polls in the state.
He stated that the signs are already being seen with the series of attacks they have been getting from oppositions who are disturbed by the massive popularity the party enjoys from the people in the state that puts it pole position to clinch victory at the governorship election.
On whether the APC is threatened by the waves of the presidential candidate of the Labour Party LP, Peter Obi who hails from the South East zone, Emenike said; “They are making waves on the internet. That is why I said come to Abia and see for yourself who is making impact and who is not making impact”.
He also added that the state governor, Okezie Ikpeazu has made the job of the APC easier, saying, judging by his performances, the governor has already done 40 percent of the campaigns for APC.
“What I want to assure you is that through his (Ikpeazu’s) performances, he has done almost 40% of the campaigns for us and what we are doing is just trying to harvest most of the grounds and cover all the loopholes and work towards that.
“I know a lot of people are still doubtful, depending on the line of propaganda and information. Please before you say anything about the APC, visit your state, go to the polling units at the wards and find out the status of today’s APC and others whether we are ready for victory or not”, he stated.
