On Saturday 25th June 2022, our Party, the Young Progressives Party (YPP) handed over the flag of the Party to me and other Progressives to contest and win elections in 2023 . This was done before a mammoth crowd of supporters and members of the YPP in Ngwa High School Aba, Abia State.
Indeed, it was a wonderful moment to be amongst the gatherings of people who are yearning for a better Abia.
The Aba Declaration has sent a shocking message but then, it’s a necessity and a mass movement whose time has come.
In Abia today, the members and supporters of the Young Progressives Party who are largely youths are undertaking a mere historic recurrence of fundamental change of the status quo.
And as someone who is seeking to represent the good people of Ohuhu in Umuahia North State Constituency, I cannot escape history at this critical time considering the fact that I am prepared to represent a clan that has made history before & through Dr MI Okpara & others in so many positive ways in Abia and beyond.
Therefore, at the historical Aba declaration that took place at Ngwa High School, I was part of history. I was handed over my Party, the YPP Flag to run for the Umuahia North State Constituency. I understand the challenges ahead but by the Grace of God, the assurance of victory which is inline with the yearning of the people is certainly good enough to keep me and other progressives on track.
I will serve and represent the interest of my people, Ndi Ohuhu effectively with humility and dedication. Obedient to the people and Obedient to serve the people.
With grateful heart, I want to thank my people that volunteered to accompany me to the Aba Declaration yesterday. Their selflessness cannot be taken out of context or for granted. I am also grateful to God Almighty for journey mercies, and for an event, that assured hope for us all.
To God be the Glory.
