The Southeast zonal chapter of the African Democratic Congress (ADC), has frowned at the widespread speculations that it has collapsed her structure to the Labour Party, describing it as unfair and unkind to the support it massively gave to the main presidential candidate of the LP, Dr Peter Obi, at the concluded february 25 presidential and national assembly elections conducted in the country by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
The Publicity Secretary of the ADC southeast zone, and the Secretary of Abia State ADC Campaign council, Very Rev P. C Okeiyi, who made the clarification in a statement on Saturday, against the backdrops, explained the massive support it rendered to the Labour Party ended with Obi, and informed every eligible voter in southeast region that ADC never collapsed her structure to any political party in the country, adding, all her gubernatorial candidates and state house of Assemblies are in the race for March 18th 2023 main elections.
The southeast leadership appealed to every eligible voters in the zone to troop out en-masse and vote for the African Democratic Congress in the forthcoming march 18th 2023 in all states in the region.
It further maintained that all her candidates for the coming gubernatorial and state house of assembly polls are fully in the race.
According to the party, “do not be deceived that ADC have adopted anyone. ADC never adopted any candidate as Bishop Dr Sunday Ndukwo Onuoha remains in the race for Abia gubernatorial and all our state house candidates.
The African Democratic Congress, therefore, reiterated that at no time did it collapse or adopted any other gubernatorial candidate or any labor party candidates for the coming polls in the southeast or in Abia state.
Recall that before the conduct of the recently-concluded presidential and national assembly elections, the Governorship candidate of the African Democratic Congress (ADC), Bishop Sunday Ndukwo Onuoha, had early February 2023, endorsed the Presidential flag-bearer of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, and hinged his decision on the capacity and competence of the Ex-governor of Anambra state.
