In her remarks, she reminded the executives that they are the first line managers of the party in their various wards and as such cannot slumber at this time as they must show capacity in building and strengthening the party from the grassroot (wards). They have a responsibility to show leadership to our teeming party members in the wards as we move ahead of the 2023 elections.
In her words ” we cannot allow our party to lie as a sheep without a Shepherd. My only concern now that electioneering are over is for us to come together to rebuild this party and make it stronger as the party of choice.
According to her, Irrespective of whatever results INEC declared for us in the last election, the fact remains that we won the hearts and minds of the good people of Isiala Ngwa and for this we must remain strong and proud. Elections are now over and it is time for all of us to shun the blame game, shun our individual interest and come together in building one strong APC.
She stressed on the need for party loyalty as the kind of betrayals experienced in the last election cannot help to move the party forward.
“I implore you to see the past election as an experience we can leverage on in moving the party forward to achieve our goal of redeeming our dear state from the hands of misgovernance” she said. As we cannot aid those ruining our state to continue. NEVER!!
Also speaking her husband Ezeji Ephraim Nwokenneya, one of Leaders of the party in the State, admonished the party fatefuls to come together at this point, forgeting all that has happened in the past so that APC can form a viable opposition that can reclaim this federal constituency and state in the next election.
In his words ” let all of us, go back home, mobilize our people in making our party stronger and more formidable. Our prospects are too high if we are sincerely ready to build the party. APC is indeed the party to beat in Isiala Ngwa come 2023. You must zero your minds from the experience of the election as all we need now is for all of us to move the party forward.
Unity is strength.
