BIOKPOMABO AWARA SPEAKS ON WHY HE DUMPED AAC FOR APC
…also speaks on his 2023 gubernatorial ambition
The 2019 governorship candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC), BIOKPOMABO AWARA has said that he left the AAC because those running the party in the state are not worthy to work with.
AWARA said this on Friday in an exclusive phone interview, ahead of planned defection in Port Harcourt on Saturday 24 July, 2021.
He said the choice of APC is because people in the party are progressive minded whom he had found worthy to work with, adding that the APC shares similar ideologies with the AAC.
Responding to a question on the seeming crisis looming in the APC between the CHIBUIKE ROTIMI AMAECHI’s faction and the MAGNUS ABE’s faction, AWARA ruled out any possible crisis in the because the Supreme Court settled the case.
“I’m not sure of any crisis in APC because their matter ended at the Supreme Court, so I believe they are working together.
“Remember that when the matter ended at the Supreme Court, Distinguished Senator MAGNUS ABE congratulated ISAAC OGBOBULA on the victory, which he said was a victory for APC”.
Asked on whether he joined the APC to fly the party’s governorship flag in 2023, having great exploits in 2919 as AAC’s governorship candidate, AWARA was tacit in his answer.
He said: “One thing at a time. Let’s join the party first and whatever the party says, we will abide by it”.
