Senate Minority Leader, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, on Sunday, congratulated the winner of the Aba South/North House of Representatives bye-election, Chimaobi Ebisike, on his victory at the last Saturday's Aba North/South Federal Constituency bye-election. He also thanked the people of Aba for trooping out to elect a representative of their choice.
Shortly after the declaration of Ebisike as the winner, Abaribe in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media, Uchenna Awom, applauded the People's Democratic Party (PDP) for effectively mobilizing the members and mounting a clean and vigorous campaign that culminated in the victory.
The victory, Senator Abaribe added, is a clear testament that PDP is the preferred choice in the state, especially with the superlative performance of the government.
"This victory is soothing and a clear signal that our people are very conscious of what is going on in the country, with the shoddy treatment of the Ndigbo by the APC government. Never again can we be led by the nose, by people who don't mean well for our people", Abaribe said.
The Senate Minority leader however advised the party to be magnanimous in victory and remain united and eschew tendencies that could alienate those willing to join now. NNL.
