'PDP could lose Abia in 2015'

25 July 2013, 10:14

Abia -  A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Abia, Okey Nwagbara, has called on the party to monitor the activities of its elected officers in the state.

Nwagbara told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Aba on Wednesday that the party could lose the state to another party in 2015 if the activities of the political office holders were not checked.

He said the failure of the party to monitor the performance of its elected officers, especially those at the helm of affair, could rob it of the chance to win the elections in the state.

The chieftain said the monitoring was necessary to ensure that only credible candidates were chosen during the primaries.

“It is constitutional for every political party to monitor the activities of its elected officers to know if their performance can give them credibility by the next election.

“They have tested the PDP and I am happy that they have seen the realities and the need for a change in the polity of the state,’’ he said.

He said that Aba, the commercial hub of the state, had lost many people to premature deaths resulting from decay of infrastructure.

The party stalwart also lamented the loss of businesses and revenue from the city following the neglect of the town.

He urged the people of the state to vote wisely in the elections to enthrone a credible leadership.
