Loyal APC members deserve reward - FCC commissioner, Ginika Tor


A member of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Enugu State, and commissioner representing the State in the Federal Character Commission, FCC, Hon. Mrs. Ginika Tor has declared that loyal members of the party would henceforth be rewarded.

She spoke in her country home, Awgu Local Government Area of the State at a special meeting during which dedicated party faithful were handsomely rewarded.

The event also witnessed the appreciation of party members who put up visible performance during the recently conducted membership registration and revalidation exercise of the APC.

Over 20 members of the party received cash and other gift items from the Federal Commissioner.

Hon. Tor urged the members to remain loyal to the party as more of such reward would be coming frequently.

“When we started the membership registration exercise, I said clearly that we are going to reward those who come tops in the exercise.

“Today, I have come to fulfil that promise with cash reward and some other items. Time has gone when party faithful don’t get any reward, we are here today to change the narrative.

“I urge you people to keep faith with the party; keep supporting our President, Muhammadu Buhari, the minister and leader of the party in the State, Hon. Geoffrey Onyeama, as well as the representative of the Southeast in the APC National Caretaker Committee, Senator Ken Nnamani.

“I want to assure you that your labour for the party would not be in vain, we will always come to appreciate your efforts because the party revolves in the grassroots,” the commissioner stated.

Members of the ward executives also received rewards for their commitment to the party.

In his speech at the event, the Deputy Governorship candidate of the party during the 2019 general elections, Barr. Chikwado Chukwunta applauded the commissioner for carrying out what he described as “historic.”

He stressed that reward system was important for the survival of any political party, adding “that is what we have witnessed today from the leader of the party in Awgu Local Government Area, Hon. Mrs. Ginika Tor.”

While calling for unity among party members, Chukwunta said the party stakeholders would no longer sit by and watch some persons create unnecessary divisions.

He blamed the party’s poor performance during the last election on factionalization, warning that “we are no longer going to allow it. This is what happened to us in 2015 and 2019, and people want a repeat of it.

“As the Deputy Chairman of this party in Enugu State, I’m next to Dr. Ben Nwoye, I stand here to say that nobody was suspended.

“The era of suspension and factionalization is over, we want to win elections in Enugu State. Anyone that comes to tell you about any faction or group again, no matter how highly placed, see the person as an enemy. What we have today is one APC,” he declared.

Also speaking, a former governorship aspirant during the 2019 election, Barr. Ben Eche also cautioned against creating needless tension in the party.

He said as the party moves into the congress, it was time to close ranks and work towards winning the gubernatorial election in the State.

He said “The minister of foreign affairs, Mr. Geoffrey Onyeama, who is the leader of the party in the State has been making positive impacts across the State. As we can see today, we came today with some learning facilities, courtesy of him.

“This shows the kind of thing we will witness if APC wins elections in Enugu State. So, it is time for everyone to close ranks.”

In a remark, another member of the party, Princess EkenediriChukwu Ozobu said she never liked politics until she got encouraged by Hon. Tor.

“Since I came on board, I have no regret at all, so I’m calling on other women to join so we can make a difference,” she said.
