The journey for the betterment of Abia state has been an eventful one for the governorship candidate of the Action Peoples Party (APP), Chief Mascot Uzor, as he and his entourage departed for Ugwunagbo LGA today shortly after visiting Osisioma Ngwa on a verification tour.
In company with his running mate, Prof. Osondu Akoma, Chief Mascot was received at the Obegu council field, which was filled to the brim by the good people of Ugwunagbo who trooped out in their numbers to welcome him.
Speaking on behalf of the people, Chief Hope Nwachukwu, Welfare Officer of the LGA, described Chief Mascot as a politician with a good track record, even as he further stressed that his people are going to vote for individuals, not political parties come 2023.
“Voting now is not the issue of the party; it is about the issue of individuals with track records.
“We know the track record of your family in Abia politics and how they have been of help to the people. So, we are convinced that such records run in the blood. For that, the people of Ugwunagbo are all out for you.”
On her part, Chief Fortune Nwangaga, the State House of Assembly candidate of APP for the Ugwunagbo state constituency, described Chief Mascot as the answer needed to transform Abia. She, therefore, called on her people to rally around the APP to realize the lofty dream of a better Abia.
Chief Mascot, who was elated at the geometrical rate of APP in Ugwunagbo less than a year after its formation, assured them of his readiness to transform Abia and extend infrastructural and human capital developments to them through the experience he has garnered as the former Chief of Staff.
