ALLEGED SUPPORT FOR PDP’S AHAIWE: Ogah Remains In APC With His Solid Political Structure- Group
- A socia-political structure and die-hard support group for Dr. Uchechukwu Sampson Ogah, the former Minister of State, Mines and Steel Development, known as Abia Rejoice, has urged the general public to disregard what it termed as misleading viral information, about Dr. Uche Ogah, saying that the latter remains a member of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
The group debunked the rumour which alleged that the latter had thrown his weight behind the Governorship Candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, Hon. Okey Ahiwe.
Meanwhile, famousreporters.com reports that the said report, as published on Opera News, on Tuesday, February 14, alleged that Ogah’s billboard which was previously situated at the Imo/Abia border towards Owerrinta had been replaced with Ahiwe’s banner while also, two other of the former’s billboards at Ogbor Hill Aba had equally been converted to the use of PDP candidate, the report said.
The report read in part:
“Ogah’s billboard at the Imo/Abia border towards Owerrinta has been replaced with Ahiwe’s banner while Ogah’s two billboards at Ogbor Hill Aba have equally been converted to the use of PDP candidate.
Furthermore, the report stated that “Abia State Chairman of APC, Dr. Kingsley Ononogbu, said that Ogah’s move did not come as a surprise to the party because “everyone knew that Ogah was sponsored by external elements to destabilise Abia APC.”
“It is on record that he (Ogah) did not participate in the governorship primary of our party. Neither did he even conduct the purported personal primary he claimed to have won. But he believed that with forged documents he could hoodwink the judiciary and earn another pay day from his sponsors.”
However, in a swift reaction to the purported defection to the ruling party in the State, Abia Rejoice Media, in a statement made available to the Media in Umuahia, urged the general public to discard the information, describing it as the “figment of the infantile imaginations of those behind such fake news.”
The statement read in detail:
IMPORTANT PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT
“It has come to our attention that a fake news publication has just been released concerning the position of our principal, the Doyen of Abia Rejoice and former Minister of State, Mines and Steel Development of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, His Excellency Dr. Uchechukwu Sampson Ogah, as it concerns his support in the forthcoming gubernatorial election in Abia State.
“The fake news in circulation purports that Dr. Ogah has thrown his weight behind the gubernatorial candidate of the Peoples’ Democratic Party, Mr. Ahiwe. We make bold to categorically declare that such information as has been taken to town is false and is a development of the figment of the infantile imaginations of those behind such fake news.
“Again, it is public knowledge that Dr. Ogah does not waver in his positions on policy issues and neither does he play games of subterfuge as it concerns politics as his involvement in politics is not for personal gain. It is instructive to note that Dr. Ogah maintains a busy schedule overseeing his business interests across the globe and his philanthropic outreaches and as such does not pay attention to infantile tactics targeted at drawing his attention to people of no consequence.
“Dr. Uchechukwu Sampson Ogah remains in APC with his solid political structure spread across all the 184 wards in Abia State and unquantified political associates and followership in Nigeria.
