Chairman of Abia State chapter of the Labour Party (LP), Mr. Ceekay Igara, has stated that membership of the party in the state is recording astronomical increase, following the entry of many decampees from the state Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), All Progressives Congress (APC) and All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA).
Some of the decampees are Dr. Alex Otti, who joined from the APC and is flying the flag of LP in the governorship election; Darlington Nwokocha and Ginger Onwusibe, who are serving members of the House of Representatives for Isiala Ngwa North/South and Isiala Ngwa North state Constituencies in the state House of Assembly, respectively, and Chief Obi Aguocha, who joined LP from the PDP.
Nwokocha, Onwusibe and Aguocha are now the LP candidates for Abia South Senatorial Zone seat, Isiala Ngwa North/South and Ikwuano/Umuahia House of Representatives seats, respectively, in the 2023 general elections, among others.
Igara, who disclosed the development to The Guardian, yesterday, said the party is focused on stabilizing, as well as accommodating and protecting the interest of members in view of the mass membership from other political parties.
He urged Abia people to embrace LP, which is prepared for true leadership, and not to be deceived again by the PDP and APC.
“ We want to ensure that our people do not continue to grow in underdevelopment; hence, our readiness to demonstrate what we preach,” Igala said.
