2023: Sir Chikwe Udensi condemns idea of sharing state funds as a condition for party politics


A  security expert and Governorship candidate on the platform of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, in Abia state, Sir Chikwe  Udensi, has condemned attempts by stakeholders of different political parties to lobby  aspirants to political offices,  to succumb to the  practice  of sharing  state  funds with  them  and  other party top-notchers  , on getting to office, as a condition  for getting  tickets to contest the forthcoming governorship election, come 2023. He maintained  that such tantamount to impunity and betrayal of trust.

Udensi, who spoke  during an interactive session with newsmen  in Umuahia said that he will not  fancy himself using  the state resources to please selfish individuals in the name of  party patronage, pointing out that  instead , he would utilize State resources for the purposes of developments and leaving behind concrete evidences for posterity, whenever he becomes governor. .

In his words:  "It will be evil of me to use Abia State resources to share amongst people within the party.  Frankly speaking, governance should not be given to poor people who will not be focused on the judicious use of State funds.  Mis-use of state funds is the main reason why Abia has remained same since creation.

“I won’t negotiate with anybody on what I will do with the state money and I won’t share state money  just for patronage. Rather, I will ensure I utilize the State resources for the progress of Abia.  I will  introduce international best practices in terms of infrastructural development, healthcare services and other basic amenities if  I becomes the next governor of Abia Statte”

The APGA governorship candidate said he embarked on the distribution of palliatives to  pensioners and the  aged as well as to traders  in  Abia state to intervene  and alleviate some of their  problems , caused by  outright abandonment  of the welfare of the citizenry  by government of the day, which has added much  more to their  sufferings.

He charged the electores in   the forthcoming general elections to  fight towards the liberation of Abia State, stressing that the fight for the number one seat in Abia requires a man who has the fear of God, credibility  and understand  the  problems  of the people. It is important to avoid a man who lacks the fear of God”

He said:“Don’t be deceived by the fake promises by some politicians.
You must vote people based on their track records and what they have achieved for humanity”.
