He assured the candidates that the grace of God will consume them to win all the positions they are vying for, adding that it is only grace that has brought him this far in his political career in life.
Atuma, who was earlier described by one of his supporters as a great fighter, bulldozer and grass roots politician, however advised candidates that winning is not a wishful thinking, but something that requires serious efforts on their own side, so that grace will do the rest for them.
“If you are afraid, don’t be afraid, the APC candidates in Abia will recover the Abia Government House, relocate it, and develop it in this their rescue mission”, he said

It could be recalled that on October 4th, a Federal High Court, sitting in Umuahia, presided over by Justice Evelyn Anyadike declared Atuma as the duly nominated Senatorial Candidate of the party in 2023 elections in a long awaited landmark judgment.
The judgment came as a result of suit filed by his opponent, Hon. Chief Sam Onuigbo , who laid claim to the same position as the authentic winner of APC primaries for Abia central senatorial election, and approached the federal high court for determination.
Delivering the judgment, Anyadike said that a man who could not provide evidence of his alleged victory could approach the court for inordinate expectations.
He described Onuigbo’s originating summons as “a fallen packs of card that was dead on arrival” and advised politicians like him to be true to their ambitions and respectful to their party constitution. END
