Mazi Enyinnaya Harbour on Saturday emerged as Chairman-elect of the Abia State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) vowing to rebuild the party in the State and rescue Abians from “decades of decay and backwardness occasioned by the inept leadership foisted upon the state by PDP”.
He equally declared his aversion for antiparty activities by party members as he vowed not to tolerate fake APC members who change colours at night for selfish gains.
Expressing his gratitude to the Hon. Babatunde Kolawole -led APC Abia State Congress Committee and the CECPC headed by Governor Mai Mala Buni, Enyinnaya Habour said his emergence was the culmination of years of careful, strategic planning and dedicated execution by ” our extraordinary leader and Abia’s Most Valuable Politician – High Chief Ikechi Emenike and the First Daughter of Abia – Rt Hon Nkeiruka Onyejiocha and many others”
Ahead of the 2023 General Elections, he said that his team will move fast to mobilize from the wards and the local crannies with the goal the give Abia electorates a new lease on life.
“APC Abia State stands today at the threshold of a historic breakthrough that had eluded her since 2014. With today’s Congress so peacefully conducted by the National Committee, we are now poised to rebuild our great party in Abia State. Our doors are now wider open to receive all men and women of goodwill that desire to see our dear State take her God-ordained place at the top.
“Even as we welcome all, our Exco shall not be a breeding ground for anti-party activities or tolerate anyone who claims to be APC at day and other parties at night. We accept the mandate to build a big united party in Abia.
“Many had doubted the genuineness of our cause, or the possibility of our vision but the Bible says even though the vision tarries, wait for it. We have waited and that vision has finally spoken and manifested. Nothing can stop an idea whose time has finally come.
“We have come, not just to rebuild the organisation called APC Abia, but also to rebuild the confidence of Abians in our ability to rescue Abia from decades of decay and backwardness occasioned by the inept leadership foisted upon the state by PDP.
“We have also come to restore their faith in our democracy and our electoral process as typified by our congress today. Right from here, we shall return to the Wards to ensure all our eligible voters are captured and motivated to participate in 2023” he declared.
The Congress was monitored by Staff of INEC from both Abia office and National Headquarters Abuja, representatives of Nigeria Police, DSS, NSCDC, Nigeria Army and Navy and the Press,
