All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate for governor of Abia State, High Chief Ikechi Emenike, has urged voters in the state to cherish their rights to vote and use it to enthrone good governance by electing the right leaders to preside over their affairs.

Emenike gave the advice during his visit to Ndume ward where he was hosted at the home of a federal commissioner, National Population Commission (NPC), Dr Nwanne Johnny Nwabuisi.

“Don’t joke with your right to vote. Don’t sell your votes,” he admonished the electorate, adding that votes would be used to bring the needed change in Abia, this year.

The Development economist, who said his task to rescue Abia was on course, noted that “the wind of change has started in Abia” as his rescue and develop Abia (RADA) movement has gained the momentum to dislodge the ruling PDP from Abia Government House.

According to him, Abia has been so mismanaged over the years to the extent that people are now eagerly waiting to use the 2023 poll to free the state from bad leaders.

The governorship hopeful promised tto change the anomalies in Abia governance, adding that “we are prepared for governance” and only need the people’s support to actualise the goals of RADA.

In her remarks, Nigeria’s Ambassador to the United States of America and Emenike’s wife, Ambassador Uzoma Emenike, said 2023 “is the time of liberation and restoration for Abia State.”

She assured Abia women that they would be happy mothers under the government of Emenike because job opportunities would be made available for Abia youths to earn decent living and also take care of their mothers.

Earlier, Dr Nwabuisi, in an address presented on behalf of Ndume Ward stakeholders, commended Emenike for his courage and plans, saying: “The coast is now clear for us to plan, strategise and march with confidence towards winning the Abia State governorship race in the forthcoming elections.”

The NPC federal commissioner, whose address was read by Prof Chris Nwamuo, reassured Emenike of support of the “most populous ward in Umuahia with 53 polling booths.”
