- APC members endorse Marc Wabara for Abia south senatorial district
- The group describes the endorsement as putting a square peg in a square hole
- Former vice president, Atiku Abubakar, visits Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti state
Members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Abia south senatorial district have reportedly kicked against the fourth term ambition of Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Daily Trust reports that the APC members endorsed Marc Wabara, a younger brother of former Senate president, Adolphus Wabara, for the slot.
The vice chairman of the APC in Ohambele in Ukwa east local government area, Chief Ogumka Adiele, described Marc Wabara’s endorsement as putting a square peg in a square hole.
Adiele said the people of the area who have been denied the dividends democracy over the years had much to gain from Wabara.
Wabara reacting to his endorsement thanked the party leadership and proclaimed a quit notice to the PDP in Abia south.
Meanwhile, former vice president, Atiku Abubakar, on Monday, June 18, called on the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti state to accept defeat in good faith if it loses the July 14 governorship election.
Atiku, who visited Governor Ayo Fayose in Ado Ekiti, said losing an election to a rival party should be seen in the light of the concession to defeat by former president, Goodluck Jonathan, in 2015.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Atiku was accompanied by the members of the PDP governorship campaign council.
