In a statement on Friday night by the APC National Secretary, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu, the party said it stands fully with the only governorship candidate known to them, Senator Ayogu Eze.

According to the party’s spokesman, Senator Ayogu Eze remains the only candidate known to them in Enugu State.
“So, even legally as at today, Senator Ayogu Eze is the candidate of APC in Enugu state. We are very confident he is going to deliver.”

He went ahead to deny the fellow so declared by the high court saying that he’s unknown to the party.
“The person that has been so declared by a court is unknown to this party because he did not even participate in the primaries that we organised. So there is no way he could have emerged as our candidate.”

The full statement reads;

“We would say that we have acknowledged the judgement of the court but we do know the party followed the procedure and the processes that led to the emergence of Senator Ayogu Eze is what this party believes in.

“We believe that the Appeal Court will do the right thing and upturn it. Senator Ayogu Eze remains in the eyes of the party, the governorship candidate for Enugu state.

“The person that has been so declared by a court is unknown to this party because he did not even participate in the primaries that we organised. So there is no way he could have emerged as our candidate.

“Again, as I speak to you we have appealed the judgement and secured a stay of execution. So, even legally as at today, Senator Ayogu Eze is the candidate of APC in Enugu state. We are very confident he is going to deliver.”
