The embattled governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ebonyi State, Sen Obinna Ogba, has sworn that no man born of a woman can ‘snatch’ his ticket from him despite the conflicting court rulings on the primary elections of his party.
Sen Ogba, representing Ebonyi Central, further noted that the national leadership of the party only conducted and recognised the June 4 and 5, 2022, primaries in the state.
He stated this yesterday when he addressed his supporters at his campaign office in Abakiliki.
Ogba said, ‘You have made me proud and I am not going to disappoint you. I made a promise to you people that the mandate given to me ‘no man born of a woman will take it away from me and I will do that in line with the spirit of Ebonyi people.
‘I may not have money but I have the grace. Please, don’t be tricked. I have been in this party right from the very day August, 1998 at Sharaton Abuja when it was formed. So of these people I gave them forms; some had no cards until this very close moment of elections.
‘I have always said it that court doesn’t belong to one person; it is for all of us, and by the grace of God I will follow them to any court they go to. The first court went in my favour and so would the second one be.’
The Eastern Updates reports that Mr. Ifeanyichukwu Odii, a billionaire politician, had gone to court seeking the nullification of the primaries, which produced Sen Ogba as the gubernatorial candidate of the party.
