“The governor is the problem Abia PDP has today. How can he come out to say the governor will come from Isialangwa north? And he mentioned that professor Ikonne, former Vice Chancellor of Abia State University should be the next governor without consultation, without telling anybody. That is the root of the problem”. Chief Ogbonnaya added.

“The elders of Ukwalangwa pleaded with Greg Ibe to allow him run the second tenure and we all supported him. Now Greg Ibe has left the party in annoyance. I may also leave the party. The issue is not me or the party but Abia state.
“If the party continue the way they are going, I will leave the party and join APGA. Nobody will hold me. I will use microphone and go around and campaign against the party. I have asked them to do what is right. People keep threatening me but it is none of my business but one more threat, I will open my mouth and say what will shake the root of Abia State. This is the time for people to see reason to do what is right” Chief Ogbonnaya revealed.
He also holds the position that the new “zoning arrangement is for people who want to remain in position and keep sleeping in hotels , likewise people who wants to collect government money for doing nothing.
“If you say you want another Ngwa man to govern Abia, what has Okezie done for Abia?” Chief Ogbonnaya asked.
Chief Ogbonnaya also faulted the administrative ability of professor Uchenna Eleazer Ikonne, the said anointed Candidate of PDP from Ngwa land extraction.
