Abia State Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Barrister Eze Chikamnayo has warned Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe against intimidating Abia State PDP and equally urged him to follow the advice of his people and contest for the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria come 2023.


In the press release signed by the Abia Information boss and made available to ALL FACTS NEWSPAPER, the commissioner revealed that Abaribe has benefitted from zoning countless times. He went to state that Abaribe was the progenitor of the Otu Onu movement that demanded for Zoning of Governorship to his people.  Now, that his folks have had their turn, he should respectfully give way for Areas that have not tasted the Governorship to take their turn. Crying foul and making unguarded statements based on self-interest is a clearly calculated attempt to destabilise the PDP in Abia State.






Abia PDP Zoning: Chikamnayo Fires Abaribe, Warns Him Against Intimidating The Party


The recent unnecessary diatribe by His Excellency, Distinguished Senator  Enyinnaya, who is currently  representing  the good  people of Abia South  in the  Nigerian Senate against  the  Leadership  of the  People’s Democratic  Party  in Abia State, is a very   unfortunate and totally unbecoming. 



First, the party has spoken and it remains binding on all law-abiding members of the PDP in Abia State.  Therefore, any personal attack either overtly or covertly on the Party and or the person of the Leader of the Party, His Excellency, Dr Okezie Victor Ikpeazu is a wasteful exercise unexpected of a Senior Official of Senator Abaribe’s standing. 


The People’s Democratic Party, Abia State is a Democratic Institution whose decisions at all times must be based on the ideas, opinions and aggregate interests of members and stakeholders at all levels.  In the instant case, Abia PDP decided to Zone it’s Governorship ticket to Abia Central and Abia North based on the feedbacks they got from the recently concluded tour of Local Governments in the entire State wherein Leaders, Stakeholders and the entire membership freely proclaimed their preferences and made submissions as it affects the 2023 Governorship ticket. They rightly observed that only Local Governments from Abia North and Abia Central indicated interest to fly the flag of the Party for the upcoming Guber Elections during the fact-finding tour. 


Specifically, Senator Abaribe ‘s Obingwa Local Government asked the Party to support their bid to have Senator Abaribe to run for the Presidency of Nigeria.  Thus, the Party simply acquiesced to this noble request and will definitely help Obingwa Local Government in this regard.


Instead of Senator Abaribe to embarrass himself by embarking on this fruitless adventure of confronting the masses of PDP in Abia State, it is expected that he would go back to his LGA and initiate consultations in order to help them realise their lofty objectives of supporting him, Senator Abaribe, for a high office such as the Presidency.


For one person who has been Deputy Governor, and four-time Senator it will naturally be a thing of joy for him to answer the clarion call of his people. It would be unthinkable to believe that any right-thinking Abia Patriot will find nothing wrong in locating the Guber ticket in the same LGA as the incumbent given the prevailing sensibility of the generality of Abians at this point in our history. 


Nobody is against the desire of anybody to run for anything, however, Senator Abaribe’s disruptive ambition cannot be prosecuted at the expense of Equity, Fairness and stability of the PDP and the Abia Polity as a whole. Trying to blackmail, cajole, bully, threaten and or disrespect the Party in any manner would not only amount to a flagrant display of insensitivity but an invitation to unpleasant consequences.  The personal obsession of an individual cannot override the common good of all Abians. 


The party cannot be said to have imposed anyone because no individual was named in their Press Release rather aspirants interested from the identified Zones can now deepen consultations in line with laid down ethos and conventions. 


Undeniably, zoning is an integral part of our party, the PDP and Senator Abaribe has benefitted from this formula countless times. He was the progenitor of the Otu Onu movement that demanded for Zoning of Governorship to his people.  Now, that his folks have had their turn, he should respectfully  give way for Areas that  have not  tasted the Governorship to take their turn. Crying foul and making unguarded statements based on self interest is a clearly calculated attempt to destabilise the PDP  in Abia State.


Abians from all walks of life, particularly the peace loving PDP Leaders and Stakeholders are urged to call Senator Abaribe  and  his collaborators to order. There’s nothing personal about the  current  Zoning of the Gubernatorial Ticket of the Party. What we need now is not a  self serving one man  show  but a collective pursuit that will ensure the victory of our Party at all levels in the upcoming polls.


The Leader of the Peoples Democratic Party in Abia State,  Governor  Okezie Victor Ikpeazu is a very humane and considerate Leader who at all times have remained true to a good conscience in his approach to issues affecting individuals and groups in our polity.  The concerns expressed by Abians which formed the basis for the adoption of the current zoning arrangement of the PDP is pertinent.


It is therefore curious that elders like Senator Abaribe who ought to applaud this ingenious political solution would resort to comments that are based on delusions of grandeur. 


Barr Eze Chikamnayo.


Honourable Commisioner for Information and Strategy
