Obviously angry at the ill-treatment meted to him during the Action Democratic Party (ADP) primary election in Imo State, Prof Tony Mbah has lampooned the leadership of the party over its choice of candidate.

The coast was already, very clear for Prof. Mba’s emergence as the party’s guber flagbearer for the November 11 Imo gubernatorial election, but for the last minute changes by the party leadership that substituted Prof. Mbah’s name with that of Dr. Kachi Nworgu from Ahiazu Mbaise Council Area.

Reacting to the development, Prof Mba, explained that the ADP primaries was scheduled solely for his nomination as candidate of the party by substitution.

He added that the entire cost of the event was borne by him, but however, regretted the outcome of the primaries, while noting that the State Chairman of the party, Hon. Uzo Nmezi was economical with the truth.

Prof. Mba boasted to be the best candidate for the top Imo job, adding that, “a lot will happen in the State politics between now and November”.

Whilst insisting that Imo State governorship election on November 11 won’t be a talking shop, the Emekuku-born politician advised the government in power to “understand that a compelling argument supported by the majority of the population can emerge only when different points of view are allowed to coexist.”
