The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC ) for Abia State, Chief Ikechi Emenike has vowed that his party’s journey to Abia Government House would be successfully completed in 2023.

He gave the assurance on Sunday when he unveiled the director general of his 2023 governorship campaign, Chief Uche Ogboso during a meeting at Umuaha involving the APC state leadership and the House of Assembly candidates of the party.

“There is no going back until we reach the Government House and rescue this state from perpetrators of bad governance,” he said.

The APC governorship candidate said that his choice of Chief Ogboso as campaign DG was based on his track record as “a veteran and decent politician” as well as the need to give every part of Abia a sense of belonging in the rescue mission. The DG, who is from Ohafia in Abia North zone, has been actively involved in politics for over two decades.
