Barr. Onu Now Ebonyi State PDP Chairman

Barr. Silas Onu, on Monday took over as the Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ebonyi State following the sack of the former state Chairman, Tochukwu Okorie by an Abuja federal high court, sitting in Abuja.

Barr. Onu had contested the Ebonyi State chairmanship position of the party and lost to Okorie, whom he later dragged to court on the ground that Okorie’s nomination form was submitted late. The court in April ruled in favor of Onu.

Okorie has since approached the Court of Appeal, asking it to set aside the Federal High Court’s judgment that declared Silas Onu as Chairman of PDP in Ebonyi State. However, on Monday, the PDP at the national level recognized Onu as the authentic chairman of the Party in Ebonyi

Barr. Onu who addressed reporters on the development at the state party Secretariat in Abakaliki, said he was ready to resume office and ensure that PDP presents fair, credible platform for all aspirants to compete and represent the party.

In his words:

“Our job is to present the best candidate that the delegates want and to sell that candidate and to win the election.
“We are not interested in where you come from or whether you are handsome or not, what we need is winning ability”. 

He urged the PDP party members to remain faithful, as they are the leading party in the state.
