Being in APC makes your body and soul be at rest – Chime

The immediate past governor of Enugu State, Sullivan Chime, has identified the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, as a party where politicians can be and find rest for their body and soul.
He advised politicians who interested in contesting the 2019 general elections in Enugu state to do so under the platform of the APC, claiming that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, would not be able to field candidates in 2019.

The former governor stated this at a rally organised to welcome some prominent former PDP members, who defected to the APC in Udi Local Government Area of Enugu State.

Insisting that the PDP, on whose platform he governed Enugu from 2007 to 2015, was dead and buried, Chime urged all intending political office seekers in the state to move to the APC.

He stated that PDP’s ‘demise’ coincided with APC’s rise, adding that “APC is a young party that came at a time the PDP was dying. Some former members of the PDP joined hands in forming the APC and it is waxing stronger.

“To demonstrate its seriousness, it took power after just one year in existence – that is why we came out to identify with the APC, a party that, when you belong to it, your body and soul will be at rest. The PDP will not contest election next time.

“We felt aggrieved that the PDP died, so we will guard the APC jealously,” the ex-governor said.
In his remark, Chairman of the APC in Enugu State, Dr Ben Nwoye, who supervised the registration of the new members, urged the people of the state to join the party in order to enjoy more dividends of democracy.
