ABIA State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has said that its attention has been drawn to a statement credited to the former Senate President, Senator Adolphus Wabara, where he reportedly endorsed Abia State Governor, Alex Otti, for a second term.
The Party in a statement signed by its Vice Chairman, Abia North, Abraham Amah, said that Wabara, who is the acting Board of Trustee Chairman, BoT of PDP, made the endorsement in his reaction to the recent flag off of reconstruction of Aba-Port-Harcourt road, by Governor Otti.
According to the statement, Wabara described the Abia governor as a reliable and true man of honour who is also a master strategist that deserved a second term in office as Abia governor.
However, Abia PDP in the statement, said the former Senate President did not speak the party’s mind, but only spoke for himself.
He said, “The Abia PDP dissociates itself with the said statement which presents Senator Wabara as someone who has either lost touch with the reality, is not at home with the undercurrents of Abia politics or one who probably spoke under the influence of some elements.
“While we recognize his entitlement to his personal opinions on issues relating to governance in Abia State and Nigeria, the Abia PDP is constrained to warn that such a highly placed official of the PDP who failed to deliver his unit for the Party during the last election should be mindful of his conduct and statements in the public, especially if the person is not well versed on the issue at core.
“The Party has appropriate channels of communication which must not be breached by any officer, no matter how highly placed.”
Concerning the second flag off of the Port-Harcourt road project, the Abia PDP said that Senator Wabara dabbled into the matter without knowing the history and facts about the road project.
The opposition party further insisted that the former administration in Abia State under Okezie Ikpeazu should share the credit for the project as it did some drainages on the road.
