Ngaji's Victory True Reflection Of Majority Of Ogoja/Yala Peoples' Wishes - Minister

Honourable Minister of State, Power, Goddy Jedy-Agba, OFR, has congratulated the winner of the February 26th Ogoja/Yala federal constituency by-election, Chief Jude Ngaji.

In a congratulatory message to Mr. Ngaji, the Minister said that the victory was a true reflection of the yearnings and aspirations of majority of Ogoja/Yala People.

Recall that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Returning Officer for the election, Dr. John Edor had declared candidate of APC, Mr. Ngaji winner of the election after gathering 22, 778 votes to win his closest rival and candidate of PDP, Hon. Mike Usibe who scored 20,590 votes.

While also congratulating the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC for the victory, Jedy-Agba charged leaders of  the party in the state to build on the victory and work more closely together ahead of future elections.

He said that "by now, everybody should know that it's no longer business as usual. Our politics has grown beyond one man or a few people's business. A lot of people are now more interested, the electorates are more informed than they used to be and ready to choose only leaders they trust.

As leaders and political party, we must build on this victory ahead of 2023. It wasn't an easy victory thus, we need to quickly review what we did right and areas we didn't do too well with the view to improve our strategies and engagements as we move forward ".

The Minister maintained that "I congratulate the winner of the Ogoja/Yala federal constituency by-election, Chief Jude Ngaji and our great party, the APC . From what we've heard, my understanding is that the opposition won the Akpabuyo State Assembly by-elections. 

While I believe our party is still looking at the results to know what happened, ostensibly, the entire exercise shows that our electoral system has improved under the APC. The electoral amendment bill that the President recently signed into law will only make the process even better. We need to take the positives and work to improve on our weaknesses going forward "
