The re-run election bid of Sen. Mao Arukwu Ohuabunwa of the PDP may have a fatal ending because of his alleged 2023 governorship interest which is upsetting some high and mighty PDP stalwart from Abia North.
AFN gathered from a source that the re-run election bid by Sen. Mao Ohuabunwa is to rightly position himself for governorship come 2023. This information was leaked by one of his aide who was in a meeting where Sen. Mao told some of his close allies of his 2023 ambition and the need to win this re-run election to position him better for the gubernatorial race in a few years. He went on to say that, the senate seat will enable him interface with the national PDP structure which will facilitate his getting the gubernatorial ticket in 2023 and he also explained that as a senator ,he raise the fund and negotiate better.
This information is already upsetting so many top Abia North PDP stakeholders including Abia state Deputy Governor Rt. Hon. Ude Oko Chukwu who are interested in taking shots at the governorship seat. They are beginning to have a rethink of their support for Mao because, Mao in the senate means 70% guaranty that Mao may knock them out come 2023.
The question now is, WHAT WILL BE THEIR NEXT MOVE? WILL THEY SACRIFICE THEIR INTEREST FOR MAO OR WILL THEY FROM BEHIND PUSH THEIR SUPPORT TO ANOTHER CANDIDATE?
IF THEY WITHDRAW FROM MAO, BETWEEN DR.ORJI UZOR KALU (PPA) AND CHIEF DAVID ONUOHA OGBA (APGA) WHO WILL THEY SUPPORT?
Politics is constantly a game of interest as politician say.
