An umbrella body called Aboh Mbaise/Ngor Okpala Integrity Group has described those championing the return of Hon. Bede Eke representing the Federal Constituency to the Green Chamber for the 3rd time as enemies of development.
Speaking through its Acting Chairman, Chief Emma Nworgu, the group alleged that some selfish individuals who care less about the development of the Federal Constituency are desperately working hard to package and sell the Lawmaker to the constituency. Though they are aware that his return will make no difference.
“It is obvious that Bede Eke is not a 3rd term candidate. Those packaging him with the intention of presenting him to us as the best candidate are aware. But they are being carried away by their selfish desires.
“He has succeeded in putting his protégés as PDP delegates across the two LGAs but will be stopped by the good people of Aboh Mbaise/Ngor Okpala Federal Constituency.
“No doubt he’s a smatter politician and has succeeded severally with the same method even as a State Lawmaker. But this time, he will not succeed. It will no longer be business as usual for him and all those projecting him for re-election.
“Even his praise-singers are aware that it will be very difficult to convince an average member of the Federal Constituency to support him for the 3rd term. Yet they are doing everything possible to fabricate lies about his achievements. They will not succeed, because we are going to address the members of our dear Federal Constituency at the right time.
“They should advice him to empower members of his constituency and attract developmental and laudable projects instead of saving money for his unrealizable 3rd term bid.”
