Uchechukwu Ogah, the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate in Abia state, has stated that the Peoples Democratic Party-led government has wasted twenty years in Umuahia Government House with nothing to show as achievements.
He took a swipe at the PDP, accusing its successive administrations for allegedly failing to address the infrastructural deficits in the state, which according to him, had hindered the economic growth of Abia.
Ogah stated this in his speech during the official flag off of Abia APC governorship Campaign in Umuahia, the state capital, promising to fix the infrastructural decays within two years of his administration if elected.
The APC chieftain claimed that the present State government has continued to waste the resources of Abia, thereby, subjecting the people to hunger and poverty.
He stressed that despite the huge funds being accrued to the state by the federal government, the Ikpeazu government had failed to provide the basic needs of the people.
“I’m assuring Abians that within two years of my administration, I will do what PDP failed to do when in power for 20 years. Within two years, we will let the people of Abia know there is a lot of money in government.
“Because, we will use the funds accrue to Abia, to work for the people of the state. Abia people must rejoice. If you take a look at my manifestos, you will see the wonderful plans I mapped out.
“Abia had been under PDP for twenty years, and they have failed to provide the basic needs of the people. And I want to say that, all the people of Abia have agreed in moving into APC for good governance.
I’m promising the people that I will not disappoint them. There is nothing you can do to a man whose time has come. The will of the people is a strong army, and the people of Abia have resolved to be and remain in APC.
The APC chieftain vowed that his party, the APC, would resist any attempt by the PDP and Governor Okezie Ikpeazu-led administration to write election results in the forthcoming gubernatorial election in the state.
“This time around, nobody will write results. Our votes will be protected. I am poised to free the people from evil misrule”.
