Abia by-election: APC group decries poor performance


Following the poor showing of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in last Saturday’s by-election in Abia State, some stakeholders of the party from Anambra State have called on the party hierarchy to jettison any plan to foist an unpopular candidate in this year’s governorship election in the state.

The party chieftains, operating under the aegis of APC Patriots, Anambra chapter, observed that the rancour which trailed an alleged imposition of a candidate was responsible for the party’s loss of the Aba North and South Federal Constituency seats to the rival Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) last Saturday.

In a statement jointly signed by the Coordinator of the group, Dozie Ikedife, and spokesman, Victor Afam Ogene, the group wondered how an aspirant (Mascot Uzor-Kalu), who was said to have won the APC primaries with 47, 825 votes-as announced by the Bisi Idaomi-led electoral committee-could not garner beyond 3, 674 votes in the general election.
