Bishop of the Methodist Church in Abia State, Sunday Onuoha, has thrown his hat in the ring for the Abia State governorship seat on the platform of the African Democratic Congress (ADC).
Bishop Onuoha who addressed supporters at the party’s national secretariat in Abuja, said he wanted to run a democratic government that would ensure Abia State was placed on a higher pedestal which would benefit all and sundry.
Bishop Onuoha, who is the co-chair of Interfaith Dialogue Forum for Peace, assured that he would deliver on all his promises.
He said: “I want to assure Nigerians that Bishop Sunday Ndukwo Onuoha will not disappoint Abia State.
“Bishop Onuoha’s mandate to us is simply to go get the nomination forms, but I can assure you that, as the ADC party chairman has said, things are not going the right way in Abia state.
“One of my core areas of focus would be to turn things around for good for the people of Abia, especially in the engagement of the youths, bringing about infrastructural development, and of course, security. I will revamp the economy of the state for the betterment of all of us.”
The national chairman of ADC, Chief Ralph Okey Nwosu, said Bishop Onuoha, as a leading cleric, was suitably qualified to lead Abia state, which has the slogan “God’s own state”.
He pointed out that the party was committed to a free, fair and credible process that would ensure only the best candidates bear the party’s flag in the 2023 general elections.
