Political stakeholders of Ohafia Local Government Area in Abia State have re-affirmed their support for the deputy Governor of the state, Sir Ude Oko Chukwu, and expressed confidence in his performance and leadership of the area.

The leaders drawn from the three major communities in the LGA; Abiriba, Nkporo and Ohafia, made this known after an enlarged stakeholders meeting held under the umbrella of Ohafia Local Government Area Progressive Assembly (OLGAPA) at the residence of Deputy Chief of Staff to Governor Okezie Ikpeazu, Chief Ukpai Agwu.

The stakeholders unequivocally endorsed Governor Ikpeazu and his deputy for second term in office, under the banner of the People Democratic Party (PDP), and promised to support other candidates of the party that emerged after the party’s primaries to ensure that PDP wins all elective offices during the 2019 general election.
