Action Alliance Has Only Ogunewe As Candidate-Party

The Imo State chapter of Action Alliance A.A, has stated without equivocation that Major Gen. Jack Ogunewe (rtd) is the party’s candidate for the November, 11, Imo State governorship election.

Chairman of the party in the state, Elder Uchendu Ahaneku, who stated this in a statement he issued on Sunday dismissed reports being peddled in some quarters that Ogunewe is not the authentic candidate of the party. He described the reports as mischievous, false and misleading.

He stated that the substitute primary election through which Ogunewe emerged as the party’s governorship candidate was conducted in line with the party’s guidelines and also monitored by officials of the Independent Electoral Commission INEC from its headquarters in Abuja and the commission’s staff in the state.

Ahaneku, expressed confidence that considering Ogunewe’s antecedents and track record, A.A, is the party to beat at the November, 11, election. He urged the Imo electorate to support the party for the liberation of the state.

He said, ‘’that the substitute primary which produced Ogunewe as the party’s governorship candidate was monitored by the officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission from the INEC’s headquarters in Abuja and the commission’s staff in the state.

Ahaneku said that with Ogunewe, AA is positioned to win the governorship election, urging the people of the state to rally round the party for the total rescue of the state.

He said ” Some miscreants have gone to town with intent to deceive, confuse the unsuspecting public about our authentic AA candidate, Major General Jack Ogunewe rtd, and the position of the INEC recognized national party chairman of AA in the person of Barr(Chief) Kenneth Obidiche Udeze.

“The congress and INEC recognised Imo state chairman, Elder. Chief Uchendu D.A Ahaneku has this to say, that Major General Ogunewe rtd remains valid and authentic Gubernatorial Candidate of Action Alliance for the 11th November 2023 IMO Governorship election and the candidate majority of Imo people have greatly identified with in high expectations of urgent return of Imo back to  Ndi Imo with the mantra; Reset Imo for peace, tranquility, progress and prosperity.  

“Ogunewe having emerged from the AA substitution Gubernatorial primary held in Imo State on the 24th May 2023 as monitored by National & State INEC staff where the party placeholder willingly withdrew his nomination and candidacy hence the emergence of the Peoples General and the choice of Ndi Imo for a peaceful Imo come 11th November, the choice is key and timeous.

“For the records, Chief Kenneth Udeze remains the Congress National Chairman as duly recognized by INEC as he fielded all the Action Alliance candidates in the 36 States, Abuja and the presidential candidate of the party in the person of Major Dr. Hamza Mustafa rtd. 

“in the recent concluded 2023 general elections, however, the party is not unmistakably unmindful of some agents of distractions, one Omaje Rufai and his co-travelers being sponsored by their paymasters with various frivolous courts litigation where they have been roundly frustrated as they kept loosing hence the Lord Justices described them; “ busy bodies, meddlesome interlopers. 

“It’s on records that in their frivolous court litigations with regards to the party leadership, primaries, 2023 25th February and March 18th 2023 elections, the presidential elections inclusive where they brazenly challenged the exclusion of their candidates by INEC, they were shamed by the courts. 

“In Imo State, the helmsman of the party, Elder Ahaneku, the SWC, concerned leaders and bonafide members and leaders in the 27 LGAs and 305 INEC recognized Wards are intact and in one piece hence these hatched buccaneers whose stock in tread is to misinform and create imaginary confusion amongst the ranks of the true believers of the Reset Imo Action Alliance and her most desired gubernatorial candidate, an outstanding candidate with character and proven integrity Major General Ogunewe rtd, to please allow Ndi Imo and not to confuse them to savour this golden opportunity to rescue themselves as they cue behind their real leader General Ogunewe who is capacity personified for a new peaceful Imo State.”
