2023: Deputy Chief Whip FHR, Onyejiocha Extols Abia APC Guber Candidate, Emenike, Canvasses Supports

“Everybody in Umunneochi has agreed, irrespective of political party, that there is need for change in Abia,”

Deputy Chief Whip, House of Representatives, Hon. Nkeiruka Onyejiocha who stated this, said that the emergence of Chief Ikechi Emenike as the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has elicited excitement and hope amongst her constituents.

In a press release signed and made available to newsmen by the Convener, The Emenike Movement (T.E.M), Onu Henry Chidi, the Deputy Chief Whip said: “God knows that a time like this will come when He will use Emenike to salvage Abia,”.

Speaking at a stakeholders meeting she hosted at her Ngodo Isuochi country home over the weekend, the federal lawmaker noted that the Almighty God in this appointed time, has heard the cries of Abians and has High Chief Emenike on a rescue mission, adding that God has seen the APC governorship flagbearer as a man of high integrity, and total commitment to developing Abia.

Onyejiocha said that Abia has lacked visionary leaders, hence, the need to bring in somebody who knows what to do to take charge of Abia in 2023.

She declared that her constituency has taken a decision to keep faith with APC, given all the dividends of democracy that had accrued to the south east region since the ruling party came on board in 2019.

He is a man of integrity, which is the most important quality that is needed in politics, but lacking among the ‘enemies of progress, Abia holding the state down”.

The stakeholders meeting was attended by traditional rulers, council of elders (Ndi Ichie), presidents of town unions, clerics, women and youth leaders as well as various interest groups in the local government.

The Deputy Chief Whip reiterated that Emenike will drive the change that would bring development to Abia, insisting that “Emenike will not embezzle Abia money no matter the pressure. He is a man of integrity, which is the most important quality that is needed in politics, but lacking among the ‘enemies of progress, Abia holding the state down”.

In his response, the APC governorship candidate acknowledged the steadfastness of Umunneochi, saying that the local government has every reason to support APC given all the benefits it has enjoyed from the party. He assured the stakeholders that the incoming APC government in Abia would be a government of equity, justice, truth, adding that every part of the state would be carried along.

The chairman of Abia APC, Dr Kingsley Ononogbu told the Umunneochi stakeholders that the aim Abia opposition party was to rebuild the state devastated by decades of misrule.

“We in Abia APC are unhappy with the poor state of affairs in Abia and that is the reason we asked High Chief Ikechi Emenike to lead us to reclaim and rebuild God’s own state”.

Onyejeocha and all that she stands for. And we are already carrying the APC message to the grassroots,” she said.
