Abia Bye-Election: PDP Relishes Victory, Mocks APC

March 28, 2021

Press Statement

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 nation.

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.
