A ‘Concerned Group under the Abia State chapter of All Progressive Congress, APC, has lambasted Mr. Paul Ikonne, the Executive Secretary of National Agricultural Land Development Authority (NALDA).
The group, which described Ikonne as a leopard, was reacting following Paul’s statement on Magic FM Radio, where he said APC has no candidate in the forthcoming Aba North/South Federal House of Reps bye-election, holding on Saturday, 27th March.
During the Radio program monitored by Abacityblog.om – Paul called on the people of Aba to vote for any party of their choice. He cited that his party, APC has no candidate, according to him the issue of candidate in APC is still in court.
Reacting, APC Concerned Group in a press statement signed by its Chairman, Comrade Godwin Madu – said they are “not surprised about the outburst of Paul Ikonne while at Magic FM this morning”.
According to the group, “This is a man that APC gave an executive position. He forgot that without the party he belongs no where and cant be an Executive Secretary of NLDA.
“Going on air to campaign against a party that is trying to gain roots in Abia is the most embarrassing thing.
“We call on all our supporters to ignore Paul Ikonne as it has been his tradition since 2015 to 2019 do discredit the party.
“He has always been compensated by the PDP for these disruptive tendencies.
“Last Nov 2020 his immediate brother though an APC was compensated as the executive chairman of Aba North local government. He has also produced many appointees of the PDP government in Abia.
“We are not discouraged but it has strengthened APC the more to go for victory come 27th.
