The delay in fielding Ngozi RBK Okafor as the authentic All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate for Ohaji Egbema/Oguta/Oru West federal constituency ahead 2023 general polls may cost the party victory.
This is the opinion of 98 percent voters who have been following the political happenings in the federal constituency.
From Ohaji-Egbema to Oguta to Oru West LGA, the choice of Ngozi RBK Okafor as the APC candidate, is a project that must be accomplished come what may.
Those who spoke to our medium, sounded it loud and clear that Ngozi RBK Okafor is the people’s choice and only her candidature will secure victory for the APC at the polls.
They advised the party on the need to field a candidate who has personality with content and much capacity to stand the opposition.
They were quick to submit that Ngozi Okafor fits the bill, while insisting that it is high time APC considered the issues of competiveness, personality and acceptability in choosing who represents the federal constituency in 2023.
Describing Ngozi RBK Okafor as one who can match words with action, our respondents, mostly women and youths warned against fielding an unpopular candidate with such a serious issue surrounding his purchase of nomination form for the primary election.
“APC should know that concerned party members and constituents are keenly watching to see what will become of the party with regards to its flag bearer in the oil-rich federal constituency and should without sentiment, field Ngozi RBK Okafor for the sake of justice”, one of our sources submitted.
The source recalled how Ngozi Okafor traversed the nook and cranny of the constituency prior to the primary elections, assuring that she would deploy such strength and bring what is due the federal constituency from Abuja when elected.
“I have personally read the judgement of the Appeal court which vindicated Ngozi RBK Okafor and proclaimed her the only candidate that had fulfilled the qualifications set for, by the new electoral act of 2022 to stand for elections. The only question now is what is Imo APC waiting for? What is the National party waiting for? Why are they jeopardizing this oil rich Constituency? Why won’t they field this popular candidate, the people’s choice? Why???”, a member of the party in Oguta lamented.
It would be recalled that Appeal Court sitting in Owerri ordered INEC to conduct a rerun election within 20 days following an appeal filed by Ngozi Okafor, challenging the outcome of the alleged party’s primary election that produced one Eugene Dibiagwu as the winner.
The rerun election, sources said was marred by too many irregularities as Okafor’s supporters waited to cast their ballot to no avail, prompting RBK Okafor to seek justice again in the court of law.
