From Ndubuisi Orji, Abuja
National chairman of the African Democratic Congress ( ADC), Chief Okey Nwosu has said the party would commence its “Rescue Nigeria” project from Abia State.
Nwosu stated this, while presenting the ADC gubernatorial forms to governorship hopeful from Abia State, Bishop Sunday Onuoha, represented by a delegation from the state, on Friday, in Abuja.
The party chairman, who berated the All Progressives Congress ( APC) led federal government for allegedly failing to fulfill its campaign promises to the electorates, said the ADC would make a difference in governance beginning from Abia State.
Nwosu, while promising that the party’s nomination process is transparent, said the ADC would also that the Independent National Electoral Commission ( INEC) truncate the wish of the people in the 2023 Abia governorship poll.
According to him, “you can see what is is happening( in the country) . At times, it is good for some of these things happen. The minister are paying N100m to be president, but nothing is working. APC told us that within six months they will restore 24 hours power supply. Now we have zero power supply.
“The rescue project is about to start. And it is starting from Abia State. We are going to support you ( Bishop Onuoha), and nothing can stop it. God is beginning with ‘Gods own state’ to rescue Nigeria. They have reduced Abia to almost a laughing stock.
“Aba that was a heavy industrial area, the politicians go to Aba to collect Internal Generated Revenue ( IGR )and fail to develop the city.
“Enough is enough. I believe that is why God decided that his lordship should put down his cassock and go into the Abia Government House. And we are going to make sure that INEC does not truncate the wish of the people.”
The leader of the delegation, Precious Agwu, who received the nomination forms, on behalf of Onuoha, said the cleric would not disappoint the people of Abia State and Nigerians, in general, if elected governor in 2023.
Agwu said: “This is the beginning of a new era. I want to assure the people of Abia that he will not disappoint Abia and he will not disappoint Nigeria.”
