The All Progressives Congress (APC) penultimate weekend, got a confidence surge, in the march to 2023 electoral victories as President Muhammadu Buhari’s Special Assistant on Social Media Lauretta Onochie, formalised her membership of the national ruling party at Onicha-Olona (Ward 4), Aniocha North Local Government Area of Delta State.
At the event Onochie, a blue chip avowed BUHARIST, disclosed that her resolve to formalise her status, was informed by the need to support the party’s presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, to win the coming election as worthy successor to her current boss, President Muhammadu Buhari.
“Given that President Buhari won’t be contesting come 2023, it is imperative to support and ensure victory for the APC presidential standard bearer, ASIWAJU Bola Ahmed Tinubu in furtherance of President Buhari’s innumerable accomplishments”.
She also revealed that this development has debunked the earlier fallacious “partisan inclination” which was widely disseminated.
“With this, I can confidently state that I am now a card-carrying member of the party(APC) as against the earlier fictitious story of my purported membership whereby my details were forged and presented to the public. Well, that’s another story for the future”, she emphasized.
In his speech, the Delta North Senatorial Chairman of the party, OIgbueshi Adizue Ekuaka, said he remained enthused over her membership of the party, as the development portends positive dividend at the impending 2023 elections.
Similarly, the Aniocha North Chairman of the party, Sir Matthew Chinye affirmed that Lauretta Onichie’s membership of the party, will herald good tidings for the party nationwide.
