Ahead of the February 16 presidential and National Assembly election, the Accord Party’s candidate for Abia North Senatorial district, Chief Kachi Iheme, has dumped his party, AP for the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Abia state.
He equally announced his withdrawal from the Abia North Senatorial race.
Speaking while formally declaring for the party (APC), at a ceremony held in Acha Ovim in Isuakwato local government areas, on Thursday, Iheme explained that he decided to join the APC to ensure that Abia people enjoy dividends of democracy which he said, had eluded them as occasioned by the twenty years of the Peoples Democratic Party’s misrule in the state.
The candidate disclosed that he cross-carpeted with thirty-four thousands of his supporters under his coalition, including Accord Party members in all the seventeen Local Government Areas of Abia.
His words, “I have formally expressed my intention and desire to be where my people are, and that is APC. Why I joined APC, is because of the same thing that made me to go to Accord Party to contest the election, is the same thing that I have also seen that APC is pursuing.
“So, like you know, working together is winning together. So, looking around and seeing people I worked with, they are credible people, people that I know, that feel what we feel. There is no point in isolating myself.
“We have to come together and take this power out from incompetent people. In just Abia coalition Movement alone, the main proprietors of the Accord Party in Abia state, we have 34,000 members from all the seventeen local government areas of the state.
“34,000 are members of the Abia Coalition Movements that are funding Accord Party, they are the same people we are putting into this platform.
” We have sat down, we have agreed and decided that there is no point in splitting this votes. Let us give it to the people who feel what we feel. We will work to ensure Dr. Uche Ogah emerges Abia governor come March 2019″.
