A well-known business mogul in the Oil & Gas sector turned politician from Abia state, founder and leader of North and South Alliance, Sir Lucky Nwogu, says he left the People’s Democratic Party because of Governor Okezie Ikpeazu.
Sir Nwogu, who is a Knight of Saint Johns Catholic Church, played a key role in the emergence of Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu as Governor in 2015. He said he left the party particularly because of Governor Ikpeazu’s inability to fulfill to the numerous promises he made before his emergence.
“According to him, “Gov Ikpeazu’ is incapable of honouring his words. To him, promises means nothing to him. I can no longer operate under such an umbrella”.
Sir Nwogu stated this at the weekend while speaking with newsmen, revealing that he didn’t leave the party for any other reason other than the Governor of the State, who he said, he campaigned for, worked tirelessly to ensure that he emerged a Governor.
He said it is an aberration for the leader of a party to shun the inconsistencies and impunity in his own party, stressing that every political party must have a listening ear to the complaints of aggrieved members pointing out that he is going to Federal House to change the narratives of his people.
While complaining the level of inconsistency of PDP in Abia State, Sir Nwogu said he decided to join the young progressives in a bid to take his political career to higher grounds, maintaining that YPP offers him better opportunity than PDP.
Sir Nwogu emphasized that he has all it takes to place the good people of Isiala Ngwa North/ South Federal Constituency on the political map in Nigeria if elected in 2023.
In his word, “I am going to the Federal House because it will afford me the opportunity to touch the lives of my constituents”
He appealed to Abians at large, to support the candidacy of Engineer Enyinnaya Nwafor, as he is divinely positioned to change Abia for the better.
