While declaring the All Progressives Congress (APC) as a dying party in the state, Chief Umeh said that his party had been the traditional party in the state from the time it was formed in 2003. He also assured that there would be primary elections in the party to select the best candidates that would give the party victory in the state
Speaking earlier, Capt. Ihenacho promised not to let the party down if he emerged the governorship candidate of the party. He also stated that his mission was to remedy the various deficits the state had witnessed as a result of lack of proper direction in the governance of the state.
