According to her,” in our quest for good governance in Abia state come 2023 we investigated the background of all the candidates contesting for Governor and discovered that the visible antecedents of Prof Ibe place him far ahead of his contemporaries”.
Continuing she said, ” We recalled his benevolence during COVID-19, the palliatives of foodstuff he has continued to freely distribute and the philanthropy which he recently manifested by treating many of us during the Prof Gregory Ibe Free Medical and Surgical Outreach. What of the scholarship he is giving to our children in his university. These are the qualities we noticed in him and decided to support his aspiration for governor”.
In conclusion she enjoined Prof Ibe not to be deterred by unfavorable court rulings but to remain focused on God, stressing that power only comes from above.
In his response, Prof Ibe pledged to sustain the execution of social intervention programmes with the distribution of Christmas gifts to every polling unit soon.
He enjoined the women not to relent in interceding for the state, emphasizing that God has truly arisen to answer the prayer of Abians.
In his words,” God has indeed heard the cries of our people and sent me to ensure that no Abian is left behind when I become governor in 2023″, he concluded.
