The presidential candidate of the African Democratic Congress, Dumebi Kachikwu, on Tuesday commended the Federal High Court in Abuja which sacked the erstwhile chairman of the party, Ralph Nwosu, and his executive council.
According to him, the ruling by Justice Binta Nyako was a Christmas gift for the entire ADC family who could now focus on rebuilding their party and taking their campaign to the Nigerian people.
Kachikwu in a statement said he would build a party that would be the pride of all Nigerians.
He said, “Nwosu did everything possible to destroy our party and our collective ambitions all for personal gain.
,”He and his management encouraged down ballot candidates to enter negotiations with other parties thus further strengthening the prevalent view that smaller parties are only in the race to negotiate payments with bigger parties.
“This will never be the story of ADC going forward. We will exterminate this anti democratic cankerworm that almost destroyed our party and build a party that will be the pride of all Nigerians.
“Change must start from within and this change has started within the ADC. I am sending a strong warning to APC, PDP and the Labour Party; ADC will not trade or negotiate any mandate. If you paid any money to anybody go and collect your money back.”
Justice Nyako had removed the Nwosu-led leadership of ADC and nullified all actions taken by them from August 21 2022 till date.
She also also affirmed leadership of Senator Patricia Akwashiki which conducted the primary that produced Kachikwu.
