Onu, a leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), said this at a New Year gathering organised for party faithful in the state in his Uburu country home in Ohaozara Local Government Area on Tuesday.

According to him, the APC will ensure that such practice by some political parties which guarantees them electoral success will be checked permanently.

“I assure you that they are no longer in control of the instruments with which they write the fake results as we will station strong members in every polling unit in the state.

“The era of writing fake electoral results is permanently behind us because we are in total control in the country,” he said.

Onu warned party members against working for the state’s ruling party in disguise, noting that the APC had the capacity to occupy positions of trust in Ebonyi.

“We are occupying key positions in the country and there is no reason for us not to occupy the Ebonyi government in the next general elections.

“There is no reason for us to work for the ruling party in the state when we can be there ourselves and we cannot be the crying babies of the state.

“We can win every election in the state even the council polls as we are determined to drain the ruling party in the state,” he said.

He remarked that the APC at the national level perceives that the party was not strong in the south-east zone, and “I want us to deliver in future elections, to correct this notion”.

“Party faithful must be dedicated to its ongoing registration exercise to ensure we record outstanding success during the next general elections.

“The national secretariat would not take us serious if we don’t generate enough registration numbers and we have to achieve this feat for ourselves and children.

“We must accord our new entrants respect, welcome them with open hands as we are determined to give the state right leadership,” he said.

Onu called on the party’s stakeholders to make sacrifices, remain united without factions and contribute immensely to achieve all set goals.

Sen. Chris Nwankwo, who represented Ebonyi Central senatorial zone from 2011—2015, thanked Onu for organising the gathering, and assured of the stakeholders contributions to achieve set goals.

Nwankwo, who defected from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the Labour party and subsequently to the APC, noted that party faithful would no longer be intimidated in the state.

The occasion attracted members of the party’s two factions in the state, among other stakeholders.

Various speakers harped on the need for the members to shun all differences and remain united as the task of dislodging the ruling party, remained a daunting one.
