“We also express support to the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu who has empowered our people and also to Hon. Dennis Amadi of the House of Representatives.
“Unfortunately, we lost out under Sullivan Chime. It’s a shame that we don’t have any bank in the communities of Umuneke Udi. He spent 8 years in PDP and he never knew his ward chairman.
“What is he going to do in APC? If he had done well, we would have followed him. Ugwuanyi has given him all the respect and should not bother wherever Chime is headed to.”
