GUBER 2023: Bishop Onuoha Officially Declares, Reveals Eleven-Point Agenda For Abia
A front line gubernatorial aspirant under the platform of African Democratic Congress (ADC) in Abia State, Bishop Dr. Sunday Onuoha officially declared his intention to run for the number one office in Abia, says that he was compelled to join the governorship race in order to address the pains and sufferings being witnessed in the state.

Let me be the balm and solution to the challenges in Abia State”
