Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Justice Sector Reform, Mrs Juliet Ibekaku-Nwagwu, says the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Enugu State cannot afford to go into elections divided.
Ibekaku-Nwagwu said this in Enugu during a reception in her honour by members of the APC in Enugu West Senatorial zone of the state.
The presidential aide called on members of the party to close ranks and work as a united family.
The presidential aide, who is also the candidate of the party for the Enugu West Senatorial election, appealed to those that lost in the nomination process to support her ambition.
She expressed willingness to work with all members of the party to ensure a good outing come 2019 election, adding “If I had lost in the nomination process I would have supported them. “We must work as one in order to deliver the party because it is not going to be easy. This is the time that we need everybody and regardless of what people are saying we need to make peace,” she said.
Ibekaku-Nwagwu said that the Buhari administration had made the job a lot easier for them through the massive infrastructure upgrade in the zone.
“The popularity of the president in this area has grown due to the various projects he has cited here. Our people now know the difference and will appreciate him in due time,” she said.
She said Enugu West Senatorial Zone which had been represented by the Deputy President of the Senate, Chief Ike Ekweremadu, needed a new lease of life. She said that the past 16 years had been tales of woes by the constituents, adding that the people of the area must be freed.
The party has been torn by factions in the state due to leadership tussle.
