You can’t defeat lawmaker, PDP chieftain tells Ikpeazu


A Peoples Democratic Party chieftain in Abia State, Dr Sampson Orji, has advised the state governor, Okezie Ikpeazu, to step down for incumbent senator, Enyinnaya Abaribe, of the All Progressives Grand Alliance because he (Ikpeazu) cannot defeat the senator.

 Orji, who was a former commissioner for Trade and Commerce, had during a live radio programme, “Open Parliament,” monitored in Umuahia, advised Governor Ikpeazu, who is the PDP’s candidate for the Abia South Senate District, that Abaribe had, based on his antecedents, proved to be the most qualified for the red chamber.

Orji, who was a governorship aspirant in the May 25 primaries of the PDP and is currently in court with the PDP and Prof. Uche Ikonne, said that if allowed to choose between Governor Ikpeazu and Senator Abaribe, he would “vote for Abaribe against Ikpeazu” as “it is like asking one to choose between “experience and lack of experience.”

Orji said he would mobilise support for Obi not because the Labour Party candidate is his fellow Igbo but because of his antecedents.
