UKWA TRADITIONAL RULERS ENDORSE DR UCHECHUKWU SAMPSON OGAH
The Eze Oha 1 of Etiti Oha Autonomous community in Ukwa west LGA His Royal Majesty Eze Amb. Obioma Nwogu, and a section of traditional rulers in Ukwa West have endorsed the gubernatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Abia State Dr. Uchechukwu Sampson Ogah.
Eze Nwogu who spoke on Wednesday, when Dr. Ogah and his campaign team visited his palace. Eze Nwogu said the endorsement was born out of their belief that Dr. Ogah has the pedigree and credentials to take Abia to the next level and wipe away the sorrows and hardship that Abians are facing at the moment.
The monarch who spoke on behalf of other traditional rulers in Ukwa West said “We appreciate your dogged determination to develop the state and return it to the path of glory. We assure you of our support and that of the entire Ukwa west LGA, we promised to ensure that you come out victorious at the coming elections.”
Responding, Dr. Ogah who is a high chief at the palace of Eze Nwogu said, if he is elected governor he will improve the welfare of Ezes in Abia. He furthermore expressed sadness over the shabby and uncaring manner Eze’s are being treated in Abia. It is only in Abia that you will see an Eze entering motorcycles to attend events and meetings. This is wrong and does not say well of royalty; our Ezes should be respected and well treated, that I will ensure if I become governor.
Dr Ogah said the condition of Abia today is gives him sleepless nights. “We are a people who amongst plenty are living in abject suffering and human induced poverty while a few is enjoy our common wealth, Abians are being oppressed and I have come to liberate Abia and make the people rejoice.”
The Royal fathers gave Dr. Ogah and his team their royal blessings, promising to sensitize their subjects on the need to support and vote for Dr. Ogah and all APC candidates in the coming elections.
