    “We are here to ask our son for clarification of the speculation that he’s contesting for Ebonyi state governorship position which we have been hearing for some while now and have confirmed truly that he’s on the race.

    “He’s our son and today have confirmed truly that he is contesting for the position under Action Alliance (AA) party and our blessing is upon him because his antecedents as former Commissioner for Works and Transport are enough to get our votes.

    He added, “Supporters of Engr Chukwuma Nwandugo are the righteous who are assuming throne soon to reposition the state and like our elders have prayed, your assumption of office will be suprise to many and that we have seen from his good work”.

    “I will not say much about what I have on the table different from what other leaders of the state have done since we have not started campaign but am assuring Ebonyians of all inclusive governance; a government where there’ll be no hunger, a government where civil servants and retirees will be happy, a government where everybody is a partaker, a government where security will be paramount.

    “I sincerely appreciate my Igbeagu and Izhi people for their solidarity and assuring them that I will not disappoint them.”
