|Drama As PANPIEC Clash With CCAD Over Sen. Abaribe & Kalu, Prince Erondu Reacts by Saintbossman: 1:53pm On Mar 09, 2021|
DRAMA AS PANPIEC SOUTHWEST ZONE CLASH WITH CONCERNED CITIZENS OF ABIA IN DIASPORA (CCAD) OVER SEN.ENYINNAYA ABARAIBE & SEN.ORJI KALU, PRINCE ERONDU UCHE REACTS AS PROMINENT YORUBA LEADERS DRUM SUPPORT FOR IGBO IN 2023.
There was drama on Wednesday March 3rd, 2021, in Akure the Ondo state capital when two groups, Concerned Citizens of Abia in the Diaspora (CCAD) and Pan Nigeria Presidency of Igbo Extraction Coalition, PANPIEC Southwest Zone who came to pay courtesy calls to Prince Erondu Uche disagreed over the attack on Senator Orji Uzor Kalu by Senator Enyinnaya Abaraibe.
Sen. Abaraibe who had recently been involved in controversial comments had accused Sen. Orji Kalu of making him swear an oath of allegiance before being inaugurated as deputy governor in 1999, stating that such acts should not be allowed to take place in politics.
Reacting to the attack on Sen. Orji Kalu, Engineer Pactick Ugoala, the Publicity Secretary of Concerned Citizens of Abia in Diaspora who led the delegation from South south said that the attack on Orji Kalu was uncalled for since he, Enyinnaya Abaraibe took the alleged oath. He wondered why he would be reporting what happened in 1999 in 2021 and said it was politically motivated. "How can he be condemning an oath he took in 1999 in 2021? Why didn't he reject the oath then? Am not saying that the alleged act is right but why now. We are Abians, both Senators are representing us in the national assembly and are also qualified for the post of the Presidency as it is going to be zoned to Igbo land. We cannot allow such attacks at this early stage. But in a swift reaction, High Chief Kingsley Chukwuma, the Deputy Coordinator PANPIEC Southwest and Hon. Samuel Eliod, Publicity Secretary of PANPIEC Southwest said that the gathering was not because of Orji Kalu and Enyinnaya Abaraibe's differences, noting that it was PDP and APC affair which has nothing to do with PANPIEC. According to High Chief Kingsley, " We are happy that our visit with your group CCAD coincided. We are here to encourage and discuss with our leader Prince Erondu Uche, the Director of Media and Publicity of PANPIEC. Our gathering here is not for Orji Kalu and Enyinnaya Abaraibe please, we don't meddle into party politics".
Addressing the press shortly after the meeting, Prince Erondu Uche who also is the President General of Concerned Citizens of Abia in the Diaspora CCAD said that the two groups which he belong to did not visit him for the purpose of discussing the issue between the two Senators. However he said that the spokesman of CCAD as an Abia man is free to air his view on the matter. He confirmed that PANPIEC does not meddle into party affairs, noting that the two Senators could be seen eating and drinking together tomorrow. " As an Abian, I belong to CCAD, I am the President General of CCAD and also a national leader in PANPIEC which is a national group. In PANPIEC, we don't play party politics. The two groups did not visit me to settle the Senators. I don't see them as fighting, they were best of friends some years back and could come back tomorrow to eat and drink together. In politics, there is no permanent friend or enemy ".
On the purpose of the visit, PEU said that CCAD SOUTH SOUTH and PANPIEC SOUTHWEST came to give him progress report on the ongoing Campaign for the Presidency to be zoned to Igbo land in 2023. He noted that CCAD is part of PANPIEC coalition and is actively involved in the 2023 campaign for Igbo to become the President which has been accepted by all Nigerians.
Reacting to the recent massive support given to PANPIEC by Prominent Yoruba leaders to actualize it's purpose of producing a Nigerian President of Igbo extraction in 2023, PEU said that the southwest leaders who are supporting his group are doing so for the sake of justice which will eventually bring unity. " We are indebted to these Patriotic Stakeholders who believe in equity, Justice and fair play. They have been encouraging us. It is either they are visiting me or hosting me. Those who would come out from southwest in 2023 to contest will not get the support of southwest. Some who confided in me said that seeing the mood of the nation now that almost all the aspirants from the southwest are already discouraged and are pulling out, noting that the mood of the nation now is for Igbo to become President in 2023.
