A member of All Progressive Congress, APC, National Caucus from Abia, Ochiagha Benjamin Benedict Apugo said that he has long been admiring the doggedness, forthrightness and unquenchable desire of the Party’s Governorship candidate in Abia, High Chief Ikechi Emenike, to rescue and develop Abia as a state.
He stated this while expressing his excitement when he received Emenike in his country home Ugba Ibeku, adding that he shares the same vision with Emenike in his action plan to take the state to the desired level of accelerated development.
He expressed sadness that the state had long been left in the hands of fraudsters, and vowed to do everything in his power to ensure the success of the APC gubernatorial candidate at the forthcoming polls.
He explained that his choice of Emenike was purely based on his outstanding qualities and capacities to do great things, assuring him of success in the gubernatorial election.
“ I can assure you that you will have all the votes in the areas under my authority,” he assured and took time to trace his long years in politics dating back to the second republic with relevant photographs to back up his claims.
He lamented that Abia experienced slowness in growth due to bad governance, adding that even Umuaha, the capital city has not witnessed development that is befitting to its status as a state capital.
According to him, with the emergence of Eminike, there is now a renewed hope for Abia because “he has the political will to shake things up and reset Abia for developmental strides”.
Responding, Emenike said that he was delighted to know that Prince Apugo, like other well meaning Abians were thinking on the same wavelength like him on how to move the state forward and have keyed into his agenda to rescue and develop Abia (RADA).
He urged the Ibeku Prince to work with him, and together they will liberate Abia for the benefit of the entire people and residents of the state,” END.
