Senator Enyinnaya  Abaribe declares for governor,”I want to succeed Ikpeazu in 2023″

Senate Minority Leader and Senator representing Abia South district, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, has declared his intention to run as governor ahead of the 2023 election in Abia state.

Senator Abaribe made the statement Monday while fielding questions from news men after a grand civic reception in his honour by Nzuko Ahiaba la Abayi in Obingwa and Aba North Local Government Areas.

The former Deputy Governor said he had already formerly informed Gov. Okezie Ikpeazu of his ambition to succeed him come 2023.

“We respect constituted authority. I believe my future political ambition should be made known to my Governor who is the number one citizen in my state.

” So, what I’m telling Ndi Abia is that they should expect Mmagha Ndigbo as their next Governor in 2023?.

Senator Abaribe who was earlier conferred with the chieftaincy title of ” Maduforo Nde Ngwa” (We still have remnants), expressed delight over the recognition.

He said the honour would spur him into more patriotic actions for not just his constituency but the state, Ndi Igbo and Nigeria at large.

He declared that no amount of persecution would deter him from standing with the truth, he said, ”I have gone to DSS custody because of Nigeria. I have fought many wars. And my people have looked at my antecedents and decided to honour me. They should expect more of those qualities in me”.
