His words: “Tinubu/Shettima victory is a victory for all Nigerian. Their resilience, commitment and willpower towards issues earned them and our party this victory, and as such are worthy of emulation by every serious politician.
“We in Anambra are enjoined to be good students of the Asiwaju/Shettima School and it is our prayer and firm belief that they will deliver on this mandate, for the good of every Nigeria”.
On issues concerning the state chapter, Ejidike, said to save APC from extinction in Anambra, moving forward, the party under his watch has resolved “to outline with Article 21.3 of our Constitution to set up a Standing Disciplinary Committee that will try all known actions and anti-party activities perpetuated against the party in the recent past”.
He said without discipline, the party can not move forward, “therefore, the party has resolved to draw a line and do everything that is needed to instil sanity in our midst.
“It is public knowledge that most of those who have made and are still making heavy sacrifices for the party have not been adequately rewarded and appreciated. Many of those who have gotten juicy Federal Government appointments were mainly non-party members, and as such refused to identify with the party. This trend has not in any way served as a source of inspiration or motivation to the party members in the state. There is a great need to consider party loyalty, hard work, and merit as the basis for future appointments when the renewed hope government of Bola Tinubu is formed, come 29th May 2023, so as to drive the party agenda as well as its manifesto.
“Elections have come and gone; despite the not-too-good performance of the APC in Anambra State. I call on all of us to willingly donate our skills, resources, time and talent to making a difference in the affairs of this party for the greater interest of all. Our utmost desire is still for APC to fly her flag in the Government House, Awka; come the 2025 governorship election and with that, I will be fulfilled”, Ejidike said.
