Obinna Odogwu, Abakaliki
State chairmen of 10 political parties in Ebonyi State have written to the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, and President Muhammadu Buhari, appealing to them to give the former Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Prof. Bernard Odoh, the APC governorship ticket.
They said that out of the persons suspected to be interested in gunning for the plum job under the APC, the ex-scribe, by virtue of his educational qualifications, exposure, and experience, was the most qualified.
This was contained in a communiqué signed by Mr Peter Nwafor of Hope Democratic Party (HDP); Inya Pius of United People’s Party (UPP) and eight others which include APA, FJP, NPC, ACPN, PDM, FDP, DPP, NNPP, and issued to newsmen in Abakaliki.
The communiqué partly read: “It is on this platform that we urge sir, His Excellency, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC); President Muhammadu Buhari, and the chieftains of the APC to complement our efforts to rescue our dear state of Ebonyi.
“We also appeal to you sirs to give governorship ticket to Prof. Bernard Ifeanyi Odoh whom we have generally adopted as the only person that will redeem the lost glory of the state since sixteen years of PDP government in the state”, the communiqué added.
