Chief Felix C. Idiga (Jafac)
A front-line aspirant for the Orlu/Orsu/Oru-East Federal House of Representatives on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Felix Chidi Idiga also known as JAFAC has described the joining of the Distinguished Senator Hope Uzodinma to the APC as no threat whatsoever to his ambition and aspiration into the Green Chambers.
He also said that the coming of the senator from the PDP to his party should not be a threat whatsoever by any member of the APC since there is no law preventing any Nigerian from cross-carpeting to parties of their choices.
Idiga who spoke to gregnwadikeblog.com at the backdrop of recent statement by the Executive Governor of Imo state, Mr. Rochas Okorocha that Senator Uzodinma joined the party “through the back window” and that Imo APC was not aware of his membership said the party national leadership knows about Uzodinma’s joining and even received the senator into their fold.
“I do not see why anyone should be threatened about the declaration of the senator for the APC. As far as I am concerned it is no threat at all. The senator personally informed me of his intention during a chanced meeting with him at an airport some weeks back, so I am aware of this.
“I don’t think members of the APC should worry about this or get divided over it. We have been here in the party and our doors are open to receive people wishing to join our party. Ordinarily his joining us should cause us to celebrate unless he has come with different agenda”, the Amaifeke born philanthropist explained.
He added that Congresses of the party are coming as such members should concentrate their interests and energies on how best to elect best and trustworthy members of the party to run its affairs.
“What should bother our party men and women now is our coming congresses. We must begin to look at, and fish out reliable party members to lead our party beginning from wards to the national level. For me, this is what concerns me, not a senator that just joined us. That is normal”
Idiga disclosed that his aspiration to represent his constituency in the House of Representatives is of divine call, noting that his constituents are solidly behind him and would vote him at elections.
He enjoined party faithful to file out on congresses and on elections to vote for good aspirants and reliable hands to lead the party to final victory at the general election.
