The Executive Chairman of Obingwa Local Government Area, Hon. Michael Ibe Nwoke has called out the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) chieftain, Sir Chikwe Udensi for citing his Local Government Area, as a vote manufacturing centre during election describing it as the “highest joke of the century” while congratulating the President and members of the National Assembly for doing the needful.

Signing Of Electoral Law: Obingwa Council Boss Replies Sir Chikwe Udensi

Hon. Nwoke in a statement said the signing of the electoral law was an expectation of all those who wished Nigeria and its electoral process well, noting that it is only a man who doesn’t wish the nation well that will frown at the signing of the law.

He described the signing of the law as one of the best decisions of the President Muhammadu Buhari led administration.

According to him “while I commend the National Assembly and the President for ensuring that Nigeria’s electoral process is made trustworthy, may I also ask that Chief Chikwe Udensi, the Governorship aspirant and chieftain of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, focuses his attention and energy on his ambition and his Local Government and not make Obingwa his topic of discourse. Who told him the votes from Obingwa were manufactured? What makes him think the electoral act has anything to do with the good, law abiding, electoral savvy and hardworking people of my Local Government? Does he have plans to disenfranchise Obingwa people at the forthcoming polls? For the records, Obingwa has over 200,000 registered voters and still counting with the ongoing registration. Obingwa remains the biggest LGA in Abia and will always cast our ballots during elections.”

He further emphasized that using Obingwa Local Government Area to drive down his point of congratulating the president is uncalled for and asked him not to heat up the polity when there is no need for that.

Hon. Nwoke in the statement called on the people of his LGA to take advantage of the ongoing voter registration to make a stronger statement in the forthcoming 2023 elections.
