The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says its landslide victory in the Aba
North/South Federal Constituency bye-election has firmly established its
superiority, particularly over the All Progressives Congress (APC), not
only in Abia state and the Southeast geo-political zone, but also across
The PDP said the fact that it flogged the boastful APC and its rejected
candidate with 10,322 votes against a paltry 3,674 is a direct
confirmation that the APC has no foothold in the Southeast and that its
bragging of having penetrated the region is an empty hype.
Indeed, our party’s resounding defeat of the APC in Aba, a major
commercial and social hub and the nerve center of the southeast, has
further established the Southeast as an undisputed stronghold of the
The outcome of this election serves as a foretaste of the crushing
defeat that awaits the APC in the zone, come 2023.
Moreover, the sweeping victory by the PDP over the APC, in an area like
Aba, has further shown that the people of the Southeast and Nigerians in
general, are no longer carried away by the lies, deceit, falsehood and
empty promises of the APC, a party that has brought so much pain and
anguish to our nation.
The APC and its leaders had, in particular, held the southeast in utter
disdain in their utterances, body language and actions, and as such,
should not expect anything less than such a loud rejection by the people
at the polls.
Moreover, this election serves as a lesson to the APC that Nigerians are
no longer ready to allow the APC to use its manipulations, violence and
compromised officials to steal votes and foist its candidates on the
people as they did in the 2019 general elections.
Our party congratulates the leaders of PDP in Abia State, particularly
the State Governor, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu and the people of Aba North/South
federal constituency for asserting themselves in the election and urged
them to remain united for the task ahead.
The PDP also congratulates the member-elect, Chimaobi Ebisike and urged
him to hit the ground running, immediately after his swearing in at the
National Assembly, to give his people the required representation in
line with the manifesto of the PDP.
