Following the cancellation of some polling units in Mbaitoli/Ikeduru federal constituency election, candidates of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in the February 25th presidential and National Assembly elections, Hon Henry Nwawuba and African Democratic Congress (ADC), Comrade Chinonso Uba (Nonso Nkwa) have collapsed their structures into the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) ahead of the forthcoming re-run election.

This decision is at the heels of a failed attempt to clinch the position for a third time by the APGA candidate, Hon Henry Nwawuba after much entreaties by critical leaders and stakeholders in Mbaitoli and Ikeduru to rescind his ambition to allow an Ikeduru son emerge in line with their gentlemanly agreement between the two LGAs.

After an extensive leadership meeting between Hon Nwawuba and Nonso Nkwa at the country home of the APGA candidate in Orodo, the duo vowed to deliver the PDP candidate, Dr Osmond Ukanacho as the only way to frustrate Prince Charles Amadi’s plot to foist his son and APC candidate, Engr Akarachi Amadi on their people.

According to a source privy to the agreement, both the APGA and ADC candidates vow to resist any attempt by APC leaders in the federal constituency to subvert the wishes of the people in the re-run poll.

The source revealed that while Hon Nwawuba expressed anger how he was denied ticket of PDP leading him to join APGA, the ADC candidate, Nonso Nkwa was said to have complained that he has not been carried along in all major issues concerning the federal constituency since he threw in the towel to contest the seat.

The source disclosed that the decision between the two contestants was to ensure that the position of MBAIKE Representative was given to the right person in Ikeduru LGA who would stand as a rallying point among leaders and stakeholders who had sued for peace in the federal constituency prior to the 2023 elections.

Meanwhile, in implementing the agreement, the duo have directed supporters in the areas election was canceled to rally round the PDP candidate, Dr Ukanacho in the forthcoming re-run poll, and urged them to resist any attempt by APC candidate and leaders to induce them from carrying out the directive.
