UMUAHIA—ABIA State chapter of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, has lambasted Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN, for what it described over alleged “senseless criticism and wide goose chase” of the government by the party in the state.
The PDP state Publicity Secretary, Chief Uchechi Ogbuka, defended the government in the state, pointing out that it was under the leadership of Governor Theodore Orji that “Abia saddled with two big cities of Umuahia and Aba started witnessing monumental facelifts in road networks in both the rural and urban areas.”
Ogbuka who was reacting to a statement credited to his counterpart in the ACN in the state, Mr. Offor Okoro that the government was commissioning fake projects on pages of newspapers, challenged the party to name such projects.
“It could have made some sense if the ACN was able to identify those projects it alleged were commissioned on the pages of newspapers. Rather than state its mission, it went on a wide goose chase which left the common reader unable to make out any meaning from the ranting.”
