2023 Guber: Abia North Youths Warn Against Returning State To Dark Days
The youths of Abia North have once again reaffirmed their stance and unalloyed support for governorship from their senatorial zone.
Mr. Ukoha Igwe, Ohafia L.G.A coordinator who spoke to journalists in a press conference on behalf of the youths said that the conference is one in a series to come, as it is specifically tailored to warn those whose duty is to make political decisions in the state to eschew pettiness, narrow-mindedness, nepotism, favoritism but embrace classical selfishness that is required of leaders.
He said that Abia State has operated a fair political system that has ‘midwifed’ peace and security in the land. According to him, any leader that wishes to change the pattern which has worked for Abians over time would be calling for a return to the dark days of mindless blood-letting, insecurity, and instability.
He stated that Abia state as of today is politically divided into 3 senatorial zones like every other state in contemporary Nigeria, thus; Abia will not stagnant itself in the past with outdated divisions of the ancient colonial era.
“Abia North, Abia Central, and Abia South are the only delineation that is acceptable; We therefore, demand that this political sharing formula that has brought peace in Abia be maintained and nurtured”
Igwe in a very determined voice said that the youths of Abia North will vehemently resist any attempt to break the cycle of power rotation that Abains have enjoyed.
He unequivocally made it clear that it is the turn of Abia North to produce the governor of Abia State come 2023, as the governorship has rotated the 3 senatorial zones. He said that it would only be fair for it to rotate back to where it started.
He called on Senator Mao Ohuabunwa to lead the pressure group because of his eloquence and bravery when it comes to speaking the truth. He also called on all well-meaning Abia North indigenes to join the struggle in making sure, the governorship returns to Abia north.
He similarly urged youths that are 18 years and above as well as elders to make sure that they register for the ongoing voter registration to be eligible to vote come 2023 general elections.
Among those that were present includes; Onoh Richard (Arochukwu L.G.A Coordinator), Chief Alvan Egeonu (Bende L.G.A Coordinator), Ukoha Igwe (Ohafiia L.G.A Coordinator), Hon. Owoh Njionye (Isukwuato L.G.A Coordinator), Uchenna Onwuka ( Umunneochi L.G.A coordinator).
