Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu

Onu’s Zoning Formula for Saturday’s State Congress Rejected by Ebonyi APC

Says it Doesn’t Represent the general Interest and Wishes of Members of the Party in the State 
By Chibuike Nwabuko


Abuja (Sundiata Post)  —  State Working Committee/Stakeholders meeting of the Ebonyi State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, held in Abakaliki yesterday rejected the purported zoning formula adopted by the Minister of Science and Technology, Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu and his loyalist.


Sundiata Post recalls that on Monday,  May 14, a factional group of the APC loyal to the minister had  at Nkwegu Ugbala Grand Arena in Abakaliki adopted a zoning formula for all the 39 executive positions.


However,  the State chairman, Chief Ben Nwobasi and the Publicity Secretary of the party, Mr. Ngaji Nwodo in a statement declared the adopted zoning formula by the Minister  null and void as it does not represent the general interest and wishes of party members in the state.


The statement read in part: “That we condemn in its entirety the purported re-zoning done in disregard to the guidelines for the state congress as we wish to state that the 2014 zoning formula remains as directed by the party.

“We state categorically that  the new zoning formula as adopted by the Minister of Science and Technology, Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu and his cohorts is null and void and does not represent the general interest and wishes of the party members in the state.


“It  is therefore unfortunate that this anti-party activity and indiscipline is being championed by Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu, who is a serving minister in the government of the ruling party.


“That we hereby resolve and it is resolved that the zoning formula as at 2014 congress remains intact in Ebonyi state. Therefore, party faithful and interested contestants for the state congress should prepare to run for the state congress in the state according to the APC’s guidelines and zoning formula as at 2014.

“That the Minister of Science and Technology, Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu and his cohorts cannot be allowed to perpetrate such illegality in Ebonyi  state for their selfish end. We state therefore that the purported re-zoning is a sabotage intended to further deplete the electoral fortunes of the APC in Ebonyi state in the 2019 general elections.”
