“As at today the APC in Abia has candidates that can win any election in this state, but it would also be unfair for a person to decide to contest for an election when he or she knows he  cannot win , that will spoil the chances of the party because the only reason a party contests election is to win.

He said,  ” Our registration officers in all the entire wards should desist from disallowing or discriminating any new or existing member from joining or renewing his or her membership.

“Furthermore let me state categorically that our party is not zoning it’s party ticket, leaders must go to their various localities and work hard. The party leadership will also assist zones that are weak.

“The challenges the party is experiencing has also been addressed, more materials will be provided but mutilation and multiple cancellation should be reduced to its barest minimum.

“Our goal in Abia APC is to emerge the highest in the entire Southeast this is because our party leaders occupy various principal leadership positions both at the National and State Assemblies including the Federal executive level so we cannot afford to fail in this task.
