National Assembly: Agbazuere says no to the automatic ticket ...Insists on free and fair primaries.

By Chinenye Nkwocha.

The PDP Federal House of Representatives Aspirant for Isiala Ngwa Constituency in the forthcoming election and Former Commissioner for Information in Abia State, Dr. ACB Agbazuere has said he will not accept the Result of the PDP Primary election if it's rigged against the wish of the people.

Dr. Agbazuere made this known on Thursday after receiving his screening certificate at the PDP Secretariat at Finbarrs road, Umuahia.

According to him: "Anything less than a free, fair and credible Primaries will not be accepted because we can not continue playing politics against the wish of the people"

He further stated that the leadership of the Party would be doing itself a great disservice if the Primary is not free and Fair., "No doubt I am the Aspirant to beat, we are going into the race very optimistic of victory. The party must not allow itself be hijacked by those who mean no well for the party. We will accept the result if it's free, fair and credible, anything short of that would be unacceptable."

He said he possesses the qualities of a good leader which has made pro groups and people of Isiala Ngwa North/South call on him to contest for House of Representatives election come 2019 and vows not to allow inexperienced persons to represent his constituency again.

"Since I joined politics several years ago, I have been in the vanguard of politics that will better mankind. There were two principles that made me join politics: I cannot sit and watch some persons that are not experienced to represent our People; secondly, I won’t allow politics to insult my institution. By institution, I mean, myself, family, tribe and culture," he said.

Dr. Agbazuere warned the party against mass defection, a failure that awaits the party if they insist on the calamity called "Automatic Ticket.

" You can't force unpopular and inexperienced politicians who have failed in all ramifications on the people because you don't want them to defect to another political party when you know very well that such mistake will only drive away many party faithfuls and electorates"

"Why did you allow people to buy nomination/expression of interest form when you know you are giving automatic ticket to people that have no verifiable achievement in their constituency?"

"I call on the national working committee of the PDP, the leader of the party and governor of Abia state who is a beneficiary of EQUITY,  to intervene  because you can't go against the will of the poor electorates that have been hoping on you to give them the needed change in 2019 simply because you want to retain same people that have impoverished them beyond reasonable doubt. That alone will necessitate protest vote against the party and we will remain in the opposition."

"How can you give automatic ticket to a failed national assembly member against the wish of the people and expect them to vote for a PDP presidential candidate when they are ready to vote out the failure you gave ticket? We are talking about a party that wants to remove Buhari from Aso Rock next year," he said.

 Dr. Agbazuere is in the race alongside incumbent Member of the Constituency, Hon. Darlington Nwokocha, the immediate past Accountant General of Abia State, Sir. Gabriel Chinenye Onyendilefu, Former Local Government Chairmen of Isiala Ngwa South, Chief Patrick Onwuka, Chief Chinagorom Nwamkpa, among others.

The Federal House of Representatives Primary Election will take place on Sunday, 30th September 2018.
