“He has not contributed anything to the party, rather he taxes all the House of Assembly candidates to support him financially and he came into the party with so much deceit that he would use his Vision Africa Radio to attract funds for his governorship race, but all were lies.
“We keep hearing cock and bull stories every day. He doesn’t show signs of seriousness and the party cannot remain silent, hence the decision to suspend him.”
According to Obinna, Abians should not take Onuoha seriously as the party had distanced itself from him, adding that soon, the party would adopt and endorse a governorship candidate of another political party who was more credible, reliable and fit to govern Abia, stressing that “anyone that lies with little things should not be trusted with leadership positions.”
Speaking, the state Coordinator of Electoral Matters and INEC Liaison, Mr Onwuasoanya Emole, said it was time to inform Abians of the anti-party activities of Onuoha, stating that the party members and executive could no longer trust him to run under the party.
The suspension of Onuoha and the other three candidates, he said, was apt and followed process, as they all breached Article 22 of the party’s constitution.
Meanwhile, Onuoha has dismissed the alleged suspension, stating that the people allegedly suspending him has already been suspended by the party.
