The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Abia State, High Chief Ikechi Emenike has continued to enjoy widespread support with the latest coming from the presidency.

Emenike’s governorship project got what is considered a major boost on Thursday as President Muhammadu Buhari endorsed him during his visit to Aso Villa.

Buhari amply expressed his support for Emenike by raising his right hand with gusto and admiration for his party’s flag bearer in Abia State.

The Abia APC gubernatorial flag bearer, who was in conpany of his wife and Nigeria’s Ambassador to the United States of America, was warmly received by Mr. President.

By singular this act, President Buhari has sent a string signal to the camp of some APC members who are still prevaricating to join hands with Emenike his mission to rescue and develop Abia(RADA).

Due to plethora of party members with governorship aspirations in Abia, the emergence of Emenike as the governorship candidate was opposed by some of those that lost out.

The governorship aspirants that didn’t succeed in the primary expressed their anger by instituting multiple court cases, many of which were filed through proxies all challenging the validity of Emenike’s governorship ticket.

Even the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) were not left out as the party leadership also went to court seeking to stop APC from fielding a candidate in the 2023 poll.

But like the other litigants fighting Emenike in the courts, Abia PDP has lost its case up to the Appeal Court in Owerri, which on January 11, 2023 dismissed in it’s entirety the appeal No. CA/OW/473/2022: PDP Vs INEC, APC, Ikechi Emenike, Uche Ogah
