The National Chairman of the African Democratic Congress (ADC) Chief Ralph Okey Nwosu, has announced that the party was collaborating with about 61 political parties to wrestle power from the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) government.
Nwosu made the disclosure in Awka while handing over the party’s flag to the candidate, Engr. Tony-Uche Ezekwelu, saying the party would offer quality and people-oriented representation.
He described Ezekwelu as most qualified and prepared, noting that he has all it takes to represent the senatorial district.
“Our candidate is youthful, educated, exposed and experienced. He will do well as a senator because he understands legislative business.
“We picked him because he is neutral. We are tired of these set of people parading themselves angling to represent us.
“Our party will join other political parties who mean well for the country to wrestle power from the incumbent,” he said.
Nwosu said the forthcoming election would be a referendum, instead of boycott of the elections as the secessionist groups.
Earlier, the party’s senatorial candidate, Ezekwelu urged the people of the zone to say no to old politicians who, he described as perpetual failure.
