A lawmaker representing Ebonyi Central at the Senate House, Obinna Ogba said that his party, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) lost in the 2023 presidential elections because of the mismanagement of affairs by its National Working Committee.
Ogba mentioned this on Sunday in a news conference at his Nkalagu hometown in Ishielu Local Government Area. He mentioned further that the party’s working committee shot itself in the foot by giving the governorship ticket to a “wrong candidate.”
“The fact remains that it is the NWC members who deserve to be suspended starting from the national chairman.

“The national chairman lost his polling booth, ward. Local government area and state and the same thing applied to all the conspirators who offered tickets to whoever understood their language,” he said.
Ogba added, however, that there was still hope for the PDP because it is loved by the people.
“What we need is the right leaders to manage the party’s affairs because no party is stronger than the PDP.
“The Labour Party made strides during the elections, especially during the presidential election because it had mainly our former members who felt annoyed at the state of things in the PDP,’’ he said.

He noted that PDP leaders supported the All Progressives Congress governorship candidate for equity and fairness in the state’s power rotation formula.
“Political parties are only avenues to get to various political destinations.
“Leaders of the PDP in Ebonyi made us believe that the northern district should produce the next governor and I am happy that those I supported won their elections,’’ Ogba said.
