Must read

Dr Uche Ogah, the 2023 Governorship Standard bearer of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Abia State, has reminded the citizenry of the urgent importance to perform their civic obligations in the forthcoming general election in 2023 across many states of the Nigeria federation.

Ogah, who also doubled as immediate past Minister of State for Mines and Steel Development, was speaking in a statement on Tuesday, regretted the socio-economic economic and Infrastructural backwardness of Abia State, and attributed the deficits, to

perennial failed leadership in the state since inception of present democratic government in Nigeria.

He further reminded the electorates that they can enthrone purposeful and responsive leadership in the state if citizens take it upon themselves, and participate actively in the current and future electoral process to choose those they trust to steer the affairs of the state and the nation, tilted at addressing the myriads of challenges facing the state and her people, pointing out that the current mood of Abia populaces called for, a government with the requisite capacity, expertise and acumen to rewrite the narrative and usher in, the needed growths and development in every facet of economic sectors for good of the people.

According to Ogah, “a true whose proclivities are centered on advancement cannot quit until victory is achieved. In Abia State and among her people whose only chance to change their collective destiny as a people and altered the narrative of stigma which has bedeviled them is in the forthcoming general election, it is pertinent to stand behind a leader with the capacity to commence the process of bringing glory in Abia’s narrative”.

Ogah reiterated his genuine commitment and that of the millions of Abia indigenes and residents, to pursue good governance towards fostering and enhancing Abia’s economic growth and Infrastructural development when elected come 2023, maintaining that he possessed the wherewithal to address the yearnings of the masses in the state, as he further vowed not to derail and deter on his bid to actualize the dreams of making Abia, new destination of economic investments.

He partly said, “In leadership, times persist in which a leader may have cause to ponder on disengaging or quitting. But winners don’t quit and quitters don’t win.

“Yes, for those whose homeland and environment are in ruins and their people despondent, yearning and calling for salvation from perennial failed leaderships, quitting is not an item on their menu and neither is disenchantment”.

AFRIPOST had reported that the former Minister of State for Mines and Steel Development, Uchechukwu Sampson Ogah, had on 26th May 2022,  declared winner of the recently-concluded direct gubernatorial primary elections conducted in Abia State by the party leadership across the 184 electoral wards of the seventeen local government areas of the state.
