Twist in battle for Abia as PDP disowns Ogah 

Gov-in- waiting, Ogar, in court over fraud charges

The Abia State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has tacitly disowned the court sanctioned Governor elect of state, Uche Ogah, accusing him of nursing an unbridled ambition.

The party also alleged that Ogah was plotting to kidnap judicial officers to swear him in as governor of Abia State.

This was stated by the  party’s Publicity Secretary in the state,  Chief Don Ubani, in a statement on Sunday.

“The Peoples’ Democratic Party in Abia State has frowned on the reports making round in the state that a certain desperate politician in the state, whose illegal efforts to seize power from the back door which has been frustrated by decent application of the rule of law, is now directing his evil machination towards kidnapping judicial officers in the state with the hope of intimidating them in order to have access to power that he did not canvass for.

“The party has equally taken cognizance of the inordinately ambitious politician’s plot to kidnap some top functionaries of the party in the state. According to intelligence available to the party, the political desperado is embittered with the state executive of the party for not coming out to support his acts of illegality.

“The party, therefore, cautions the politician that is involved in this sacrilegious and bloody shenanigan to quickly retrace his nefarious steps as the likely consequences of his devious desires and mischievous plots would compound his imagination and would only leave him with regrets that may not be redressed or even corrected in his life  time.

“The party wishes to remind him that he who throws stones into a crowded market should not forget that his loved ones could end up being the victims of his action.”

However, Ogah, while speaking on Sunday, vowed that he would continue to fight,.

Ogah, who said the fight to swear him in as governor was still on, said he was hopeful that God would see him through the fight and that this was not the time to talk much.
