Onuoha-Bourdex Lights Up Abia North With Campaign

The Abia North Senatorial candidate of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA), Chief Dr. David Ogba Onuoha-Bourdex’s campaign train was anchored at Umunneochi Local Government Area, where the people turned out in large numbers to reaffirm their support for him preparatory for the yet-to-be declared date for the Senatorial rerun election.

The Court of Appeal, sitting in Owerri, headed by Justice G. Mbaba, had nullified the election of the Peoples Democratic Party’s candidate, Senator Mao Ohuabunwa, ordering the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to conduct a fresh poll within 90 days.

After assuring him of their support, the people encouraged him not to be disappointed or deterred by the former’s outcome, but promised that they will stand by him to make sure that all votes cast would be counted and declared in the presence of all for the purpose of transparency.

Speaking to them, Bourdex expressed dissatisfaction over the level of abandonment Abia North had suffered in the hands of previous representatives, who he said benefited individually from his support for quality leadership and effective representation.

“I know how well I supported most of them in government, but it pains me that when they win to occupy those positions, they develop hatred overnight against our people. Even when I will fund their elections for them to win and make lives easy for our people, yet they will go there and forget us.

“At a point, I felt enough is enough. I felt I should go there myself, even if it means spending just four years to deliver and save our people from the menace of bad leadership. We need to save Abia North. We need a representative who can be here at home to handle the problems affecting our people, and as well be in Abuja for proper legislation. You can count on me. Don’t forget, if I fail, please ostracize me,” he said.
