The immediate-past chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Abia State, Senator Emma Nwaka, has insisted that there is no faction in the state’s chapter of the party, contrary to claims by “self-acclaimed” factional leader, Hon Chidi Nwosu.
Nwaka who supervised the May 10 state congress that produced the Chief Johnson Onuigbo-led executive said that the outcome of the exercise was credible.
He wondered why it took Nwosu so long a time to challenge the outcome of the congress, and advised him to stop parading himself as a factional chairman.
His words: “Abia State PDP remains one and indivisible under the current leadership of Chief Johnson Onuigbo.
“I had the privilege of presiding over the affairs of the party in the past five years plus and one of our major achievements was ensuring that we left behind a vibrant and united party able to win elections.
“The congresses across the state that culminated in the election of the Onuigbo-led state executive were adjudged as very credible by party leaders all over the country.
“What I find most repulsive is that all those who today are alleged to be calling the credibility of the congress into question participated in it one way or the other.
“If their action is not an after-thought actuated by mischief how come it took them so long after the congress to raise their reckless objection.”
He expressed sadness that Nwosu who was a former member of the state House of Assembly decided to destroy the party that brought him to limelight.
