Chief Onyedika Agbo, Enugu State Governorship aspirant under All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), has decried spate of money politics within political parties as it would result in the emergence of non-credible candidates.

Agbo said this in a press briefing in Enugu on Wednesday, which he titled: “A Generation in Dilemma: An Urgent Call for Rescue”.

He urged all Nigerians irrespective of religious, ethnic, political and personal interest to wake up to the reality of the impending doom.

The aspirant said that anybody who still prioritises politics, ethnicity, religion or personal gains over our national survival does not understand the level of mess we are in.

He said: “It is insensitivity for the major political parties in a time as crucial as now to raise the prices of their nomination forms in addition to the ridiculous process of obtaining and submitting those forms.

“The parties’ internal democratic process matters a lot. Because if the foundation be destroyed, what can the righteous do?”.

Agbo, however, called on the country’s youths to pool their strength and other advantages together to find a definition and identify for this generation.

“We (youths) are more advantaged than the previous generations in many spheres.

“Yet we are over burdened with countless distractions and challenges, which only our collective and sincere asking of questions and selfless commitments can help us address,” he said.

On the Presidency of South-East extraction, Agbo said that it was unfortunate that for the first time since 1999 that Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is throwing their presidential zoning arrangement open just to sideline the South-East.

He noted that the party used the same zoning to elect their party’s leadership at the just concluded national convention; while PDP had enjoyed the highest support from the South-East for 22 years.

“I call on the All Progressives Congress (APC) to give an lgbo aspirant their presidential ticket.

“While calling on all Igbos at home or abroad to unite as we take a stand because 2023 is not only just strategic but a defining moment,” he appealed.

He urged all to do well to participate in the electoral process by first obtaining their Permanent Voters Cards and get ready to vote out bad governance that had led to endless agitations and complaints by many.

Agbo noted that he was nursing the ambition of dropping his governorship aspiration, adding that “for long, my main interest has always been putting Enugu State and Alaigbo (Igbo land) first.

“I will therefore commit to aligning with other credible leaders for the same purpose of rescuing our dear state – Enugu State and Alaigbo in general,” he said.
