The All Progressive Candidate for the Abia Central Senatorial Zone and a Former Member of the House of Reps, Hon. Emeka Atuma has also rebutted the fake news stating that the Abia Gubernatorial Candidate, Ikechi Emenike made some condescending comments against the Member representing Bende Federal Constituency, Rep. Benjamin Kalu.
The Candidate who was also present at the meeting stated that such a thing never occurred at the meeting which was majorly to discuss the progress of the party in the State. He added the publication about the Guber Candidate snubbing the Representative were obvious lies by agents who are trying to distract the party in the State.
According to him, this is a strategy to further divide the party by those working so hard to frustrate APC Abia state. He said:
“I have known Hon Benjamin Kalu since 2001 when we were all trying to go to the House of Representatives and he has been a man with a dependable and consistent Charater, a man of peace always looking for the good of the party and a strong ally of Ahiwaju Ahmed Tinubu whom he always testified as assisting him without meeting him in person. We are counting on him to deliver the federal constituency to our party because Bende has reaped a lot from the federal government“.
He urged Abians to disregard news from any quarters to this regard as it is a ploy to create a mirage of disunity in the party, he further added that the APC is coming as a United front to take over all the seats of power in Abia State.
