Health Minister, Prof. Onyebuchi Chukwu, was on Tuesday adopted by the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) alongside other major stakeholders of the party from the three geo-political zones of Ebonyi State as the consensus governorship candidate of the party ahead of next year’s general election.
Prof. Chukwu’s endorsement followed a closed-door stakeholders’ meeting of Ebonyi North and Central senatorial zones convened by the leader of the party, Governor Martin Elechi at the Government House, Abakaliki.
The meeting lasted more than two hours, according to a source at the meeting.
The endorsement of the former Chief Medical Director of Ebonyi State University Teaching Hospital means that – except in the event of the unexpected – he would become the state’s helmsman in 2015 since Ebonyi is dominated by PDP.
