Abia North Agog As Bourdex Takes Campaign Tour To Umunneochi
Recently, the Abia North Senatorial candidate of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA), Chief Dr. David Ogba Onuoha-Bourdex took his campaign tour to Umunneochi Local Government Area, where he got an unequivocal support from the people who rallied round to reaffirm their support for him.
Promising to vote and protect their votes, the people of Umunneochi assured the telecom guru of their support come the yet-to-be declared date for rerun election.
Ordering the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to conduct a fresh poll within 90 days, the Court of Appeal, sitting in Owerri, headed by Justice G. Mbaba, nullified the malpractice which led to the declaration of the Peoples Democratic Party’s candidate, Senator Mao Ohuabunwa’s election.
After assuring him of their support, the people encouraged him not to be disappointed or deterred by the former’s outcome, but promised that they will stand by him to make sure that all votes cast would be counted and declared in the presence of all for the purpose of transparency.
Speaking to them, Bourdex expressed dissatisfaction over the level of abandonment Abia North had suffered in the hands of previous representatives, who he said benefited individually from his support for quality leadership and effective representation.
“I know how well I supported most of them in government, but it pains me that when they win to occupy those positions, they develop hatred overnight against our people. Even when I will fund their elections for them to win and make lives easy for our people, yet they will go there and forget us.
