The former governor stated this in Ebonyi on Saturday.
A former Governor of Ebonyi, Sam Egwu, has dismissed the threat of the All Progressives Congress (APC) or any opposition party from wresting power from the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the state.
Mr. Egwu spoke at Ezzamgbo, the headquarters of Ohaukwu Local Council of Ebonyi, on Friday during a tour by PDP to show appreciation to the people of the area.
He said that even if all opposition parties in the country merged, the PDP would dominate the state’s political landscape.
“The PDP has found its way into the hearts of the people due to the democratic dividends provided by our government.
“All forces against the party in the state will fail, as we have remained united in the quest to develop the state,” Egwu said.
He urged PDP members to “strive to sustain such dominance by shunning acts that would give the opposition room to operate.
“Those who want to divide the party should have a rethink.
“They should imbibe the spirit of forgiveness and concentrate on issues that will enhance the growth and sustainability of the party.”
Mr. Egwu also said that his relationship with his successor, Martin Elechi, had remained cordial because they shared the same ideal of developing the state.
Mr. Elechi described Mr. Egwu as his mentor and thanked the people for their support and peaceful disposition.
