Donatus Obi-Ozoemena defects to ADC

An erstwhile governorship aspirant of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, in Enugu State, Pastor Donatus Obi-Ozoemena, has defected to the African Democratic Congress, ADC, to pursue his 2023 gubernatorial ambition.
The defection comes days after he failed to clich the APGA governorship ticket at a primary election, which he described as dishonest and stage-managed exercise.
Ozoemena said his entrance into the guber race was on rescue mission to ameliorate the suffering of Enugu people, and reiterated his poise to push through his ambition to the end.
The rescue mission, according to him, is to create employment for the youths; establish cottage industries, transform the state’s health sector and security as well as provide portable water for the residents of Enugu state.
The Awgu-born politician noted that with his new platform, he and his teeming supporters were ready for the governorship election come 2023.
He further said: “ADC” is a peaceful platform. Our eyes are firmely on the crown and I thank the national chairman of the party, Chief Ralph Okey Nwosu and the entire ADC family for this opportunity.
“For us, this is a peaceful, prosperous home and only God can stop us.
“We have put behind us the shenanigans, dishonest, stage-managed and sellout acts of APGA officials in Enugu State, leaving them to God almighty for judgement.
“We have impeccable information, facts and figures to expose gullible players of the party in the state. However, we have chosen not to be distracted, deterred or discouraged in our august mission to exterminate inept, vision less and motion-without-movement governance in Enugu State.
Pastor Ozoemena had contested for the same office in 2019 under the umbrella of United Democratic Party (UDP).
He had singlehandedly formed and funded the party in the state but lost to the incumbent governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, at the general election, as second runner up.
He was also the first candidate to openly declare that he would not subject Ugwuanyi’s victory to litigation and subsequently paid the governor a courtesy call to exhibit spirit of sportsmanship.
