An Abia born philanthropist, Mayor Lucky Igbokwe has formally declear interest to contest in the coming 2023 governorship race in Abia state.
This was made public in a statement he signed to formally declear his interest on Monday.
The statement reads:
AS I FORMALLY DECLARE TO CONTEST IN THE 2023 ABIA GOVERNORSHIP ELECTION
Following due consultations with relevant stakeholders, traditional leaders, the downtrodden and entire good people of Ndi Abia and further empowered by a support group under the auspices of Concerned Friends of Mayor Lucky Igbokwe led by the deputy chief whip of the Abia State House of Assembly, Right Honourable Kaycee Onuzuruike and youth leader, Hon. Okechi Utah, who out of their goodwill, purchased the expression of interest and nomination forms for me, I hereby formally inform you, of my wish to contest the 2023 governorship election on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
My decision to run is borne out of hunger and desire to add value and impetus against the backdrop of the yearnings of the entire people of Abia state, who believe in the youths as an option, and to take Abia to the much desired place occasioned by their cries and wishes for good governance and inclusiveness and ensuring that Abia takes its rightful place in the comity of States
Having seen the roles and contributions of our past leaders, there’s no gain saying that they have done their best, but I’m here to reinvigorate our spirits, minds and souls to the much vaunted dreams of our people for a better life, and to stand in the gap to shield our people from any form of hopelessness.
I have joined in this race with my full chest, to say I appreciate other people who as well, aspire for the same position, but however, I pledge that I offer a better option, to galvanize the young people, the men and women of Abia State, to instill a sense of belonging in our administration, which will bring hope and pride to our people.
I urge you all to come to the table and let’s take Abia to the most enviable heights we desire.
I want us to know that the confidence in me is a confidence of hope, the future, the success and the restoration.
Abia is LUCKY with Mayor Igbokwe
PDP…..Power to the people
