Culled from the Guardian Newspaper.

Some residents of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Monday, adopted the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) Senatorial contestant, Dr Anthony Chike Ezekwugo, as their preferred candidate for the senatorial seat in FCT.

Addressing journalists in Abuja, where the APGA candidate was presented to the public, the Chairman of, the Middle Belt and Southern caucus, Olisa Uzoewulu, stated that the decision to adopt Ezekwugo as Middle Belt/Southern candidate for the FCT Senatorial election was made in the interest of equity, ethical and social considerations.

He said: “For the critical position of Senator of the FCT, we have declared our unalloyed support and adoption of the candidate of APGA, Dr Anthony Chike Ezekwugo and we are prepared to work, campaign and canvass for him.

“We so present him to the good people of FCT and our decision which derives essentially from moral, ethical and social considerations in tandem with our desire to restore the ethical base of FCT politics. In a nutshell, our decision was based on competence, exposure, proven track record and the social contract agreement of fair representation predicated on the ideals of the creation of the FCT.”

The chairman, who was flanked by officials of the caucus Labout Party and the APGA members, stated also that the group has adopted Chinedu Obika for the Abuja North House of Representatives seat, and Mrs Joy Ohiomora as the candidate for the Abuja Southern Federal Constituency seat respectively.

The chairman however called on FCT residents to vote for the Labour Party Presidential candidate, Mr Peter Obi, during the presidential election.

He stated that current FCT National Assembly members who are also in the race for re-election have not done much for the territory despite being there for several years. He, therefore, declared that voters should take decisions to correct the wrong choice of the past years.
