Dr. Adol Awam, a Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), yesterday declared his intention to contest the 2019 governorship election in Ebonyi State.

 

The aspirant said that any candidate that must defeat Governor David Umahi, must come from the North senatorial zone considering the zone’s numerical strength, political awareness and achievements in Ebonyi political arena. 

Addressing journalists in Abakaliki, the gubernatorial aspirant and former ALGON Chairman in the state, who openly declared his intention to run for the forth coming election, debunked the rumour that he was being sponsored by the present administration in the state. 

According to him, as a strong politician from Ebonyi North senatorial zone which has the highest capacity and strength in the state, he stand the chance of winning the 2019 general election and becoming the next Governor of the state. 

The APC Chieftain expressed optimism that his party would win the 2019 general election without any hitch in the state adding that his administration would give priority to the welfare of Ebonyians and industrialisation of the state.

“I heard the rumour making the round that the Governor is behind the clarion call of my people to contest the forthcoming gubernatorial election come 2019. This is a lie of the highest order, laughable and a tantrum thrown by frustrated people who are apprehensive of my outing to respond to the call of my people.

“I want to use this medium to call on all APC faithful and indeed all Ebonyians in the state to rise up and put on their armour (which is PVC) to face the challenges in the state and work closely to see that APC wins the election come 2019. The time is now and together we can make it.”
