Abia 2023: Governorship hopeful urges residents to get their voters card

A front line  governorship aspirant in Abia State, Mazi Chikwe Udensi, has renewed calls for Abia residents to get their voters' card and vote for the candidate that will transform the state in 2023.

He said Abia needs a God fearing man to pilot its affairs, alleging  that those in government  
siphon public fund because they
lack the fear of God, 

He spoke in Aba the commercial hub of the State on Thursday during the flag off of the skills acquisition programme for Abia women organised by Rotary Club of Umungasi Aba, Rotary Club of Umudike Central, Rotary Club of Arochukwu and Rotary club of Abuja Downtown  district 9142 in partnership with Build A New Abia, BANA and Women Forum Charity Foundation.

Udensi, commended Abia women for the supportive roles they play in building their homes and the economy of the state, while urging them to remain steadfast in their struggles.

He promised that women will constitute 50 percent of Abia State cabinet if he is elected governor in 2023. 

He said, "Women are important in Nation building they deserve to have more than  35% representation
in government at all levels, that is why we will give them 50%, representation in our cabinet if we win the election.

"Women have made a lot of meaningful contributions in human development and they produce good results when given positions of authority. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala is a clear indication that women has a lot to offer".

Udensi, solicited for the support of the women to enable him win the 2023 governorship election and reposition the economy of the state.

“Anyone who says Abia is not rich is not saying the truth. In Anambra, Peter Obi, was governor for eight years and within the eight years, he did not borrow one kobo.

“He built hospitals, roads, paid pensions, gratuities, salaries and still handed over to his successor N75bn.

“It’s not about availability of the money but the use of the money. From what he heard from former Commissioner for Finance, Obinna Oriaku our resources are being frittered away.

“On entertainment alone in Government House, a whopping N3bn is budgeted. Public resources are being shared among those in power. All these will come to an end in 2023 if we take over government” he said.

In a remark, the CME Rotary Club of Abuja Downtown District 9125, Mrs. Ebere Mercy Udensi, said  BANA a charity organisation of Sir Chikwe Udensi, is using the opportunity of skills acquisition to also distribute relief materials and funds to support small scale business owners boost their capital base.

The participants were tutored on soap, detol, and cream making in addition to food items and cash support given to them.
