In a communique released to the press and signed by prominent Ukwa/Ngwa sons, the group frowned at the intimidation of Ukwa/Ngwa indigenes by the PDP and its agents stating that they will resist any attempt by any one or group of persons to impose any candidate on the Ukwa/Ngwa nation.

WE DISASSOCIATE UKWA NGWA NATION FROM THE PURPORTED ENDORSEMENT OF OKEZIE IKEAZU OF THE PDP
We the Oha Ukwa Ngwa Nile, wishes to on be behalf of our people reject in totality the purported endorsement of Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu, the Executive Governor of Abia State and the governorship candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, for re-election on Saturday, March 9, 2019. At the same time, we want to use this medium to debunk the notion that our people are hinged on his candidature and are against other candidates.
Again we take exception to the intimidation of Ukwa Ngwa indigens who have chosen to vote according to their conscience, candidates of other parties. And we want to warn seriously that we will go to any extent to resist the move being made by agents of the PDP to put our people under diabolic oaths and to lay a cours on those who wants to exercise their God given rights.
The tenure of Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu, the acclaimed son of Ukwa Ngwa has brought nothing but ridicule and shame to our people. He failed our expectations greatly and we can boldly say that we are not happy with him. Those who are running around in the name of Ukwa Ngwa, endorsing his re-election bid are nothing but agents of the cabal domiciled in the PDP and those who’s only interest is monetary gain and not the progress and development of Abia State.
We are a people of conscience and our determination is to ensure the progress and development of Abia State. Anything to the contrary is unacceptable to us. We want posterity to judge us right, that we stood on the side of truth when it mattered most and it was not convenient.
In the light of the foregoing and in line with good morality, we wish to publicly disassociate our people from the purported endorsement of Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu and his candidature. And we wish to use this medium to also endorse Dr. Uchechukwu Sampson Ogah, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC. We consider him a better candidate and we see his manifesto as a robust plan for development of Abia State and the Ukwa Ngwa nation.
We pray the almighty God to grant Dr. Uchechukwu Sampson Ogah victory on Saturday. And we ask that His wisdom will come upon him to lead Abia State into prosperity.
