Changing the mindset of Abia electorates is our greatest challenge - Obinna

Ogbonnaya Ikokwu, Umuahia

The Abia state chairman of the African Democratic Congress Mr Donorman Obinna, has said that changing the mindset of electorates in the state from money  politics to idealogy politics was the party's greatest challenge.

Obinna, who spoke shortly after the party's congress in Umuahia on Thursday, insisted that the ADC remains the only opposition party in the state.

He added that the people of the state were beginning to understand what the party was preaching, expressing the hope that they will win election in the state come 2023.

He said, "Our greatest challenge is how to convince Abians to change their orientation and make them abandon  money politics.

"For the past 24 years the PDP has taught them that politics is all about sharing money during elections. So when you call people for a political meeting they will be thinking you are going to give them money. How to change the minds of the electorates is our challenge now.

"But I can tell you that Abians are beginning to see it as an obligation to jettison the money mentality to elect a leader of their choice.

"Our governorship candidates fits into our ideology as a political party, all the people in the state are beginning to accept them and they are even telling us to assist them get their PVCs to vote for them.

"we have tried a business man, he failed us, we tried a scholar in government he failed us, I think is time for us to try men of integrity and I believe that with our ideology and quality of candidates we will produce the next Governor of Abia state".
