2015: I Remain Candidate To Beat In Abia-Nwosu

Listen to article

Foremost governorship aspirant on the platform of the Peoples Democratic

Party (PDP) in Abia state, Barr. Friday Nwosu says he remains the

candidate to beat in the 2015 poll in the state.
In an interview with newsmen in Aba, Nwosu said he has assessed the

profiles of aspirants contesting for the Abia governorship position and

realized that he is better placed and possess the right credentials to

succeed Gov. Theodore Orji
Nwosu who expressed confidence that he will emerge the PDP flag bearer in

the governorship primary election called on residents of the state to join

hands with the present government to make the state a better place for

all, stating that  the governor has placed Abia on a sound footing judging

by the quality of projects he has undertaken.
He disclosed that he is still consulting with the people of the state and

beyond about his ambition.
“I'm consulting the people of Abia state and beyond; consulting privately

informing them about my intention and seeking for support. The support we

are getting from the stakeholders and people across the state and beyond

is unparalleled. My ambition is a mass movement and this tells you that it

is a divine project. I have my unique selling points which will be made

known at the appropriate time,” Nwosu stated.
He condemned reports alleging that he will later withdraw for a better

candidate in the build up to the governorship race and called on people

seeking political offices to sell their programmes to the electorate

rather engaging in propaganda.
According to him,” As a legal practitioner, I deal with facts; I cannot

begin to talk about stepping down for anybody when I know that no aspirant

is better qualified than me. I can assure you that most of these aspirants

will not even purchase expression of interest forms. They are standing on

one foot, pretending to be aspirants but time will reveal these pretenders

and their game.”
He advised journalists to be factual in their reports instead of

misquoting people and pandering to political interests.
