Johnson-Ogbuneke further used the medium to urge all the eligible voters to go and register in the on going Voters Registration exercise.
“That year 2023 election will be one that will measure the credibility of ndi-Abia by their choices in voting in credible candidates to govern them. It will not be business as usual she”, the SDP Standard-bearer submitted.
