‘I supported my brother, Otti to prove Emenike, Avajah, others have no political relevance’- Former Minister, Ogah
*Says it’s a proof of his manhood to Onyejiocha
The Immediate -past Minister of State for Mines and Steel Development, Dr Uche Ogah, has dismissed with a snap of the fingers, his suspension by the leadership of APC in Abia State, saying it was his own little way of proving to them his indisputable political relevance.
The Abia State chapter of the All Progressive Congress, APC, suspended Ogah for allegedly working for involvement in anti-party activities during the just-concluded general elections in the state.
Reacting to a letter signed by its Secretary, Chief Chidi Avajah, had accused Ogah of donating his campaign bill boards to the Peoples Democratic Party Governorship candiate, Okey Ahiwe after losing his case against Chief Ikechi Emenike;
The Party also alleged that Ex- Minister sponsored his brother, Chief Amaobi Ogah of the Labour Party against a serving APC member of the House of Representatives, Hon. Nkeiru Onyejiocha, which led to her obvious failure in the election
In his reaction, Ogah who without mincing words, admitted to supporting the Labour Party Governorship Candidate, as well as his younger brother, Amaobi Ogah who contested against Onyejiocha, said he wanted to demonstrate his electoral value to APC in the State.
” PDP used them to destroy APC. How can somebody that says his wife is the Nigeria Ambassador to the US ; somebody collecting all the money and contracts; was only able to give APC, a ruling party at the centre, 8000 votes during the presidential poll?
” Nkeiru told everybody that I had no electoral value, but I wanted to prove her wrong and teach her a lesson. I have shown her that she is the one without any electoral value.
” She said she could win the election without me. Now, let her come and win the election in Isuikwuato- Umunneochi federal constituency again. She said no man with balls can collect the seat from her, and I wanted to tell her that I have balls!
“All those people in Emenike’s camp have lost their political relevance. In 2019, we gave APC 49%, but one Tony Eze compromised, and they cancelled and cancelled until it came down to 26%.
” Ikpeazu then carried it to Abuja and claimed that he was the one that gave Buhari 26%. So, during the governorship election, they gave him the entire structure, including INEC. Despite that, we still won that election. If not that, they stole our votes in six LGAs.
” So, all these people following Emenike have lost their political value in Abia State. Abia has rejected all of them.
” Who is Avajah? Let him produce his polling unit and Ward results let’s see. He is the one to be suspended because he has no political relevance in Abia politics”.
” If I supported my brother? Yes, I did! I also supported Dr. Alex Otti. I’m not hiding it because I wanted to show those in Emenike’s camp that they have no political value.”
He, however, denied supporting PDP.
