The Abia State Chapter of National Association of Undergraduate Students in Nigeria (NAUSIN) have called on Bishop Dr. Sunday N. Onuoha to join the 2023 Abia state gubernatorial race.

The call made in a press release signed by Comrade Onyekachi Umunnabuike and Comrade Johnson Udo, Chairman and Secretary respectively.

In the press release, they revealed some of the antecedents of Bishop Sunday Onuoha and requested he uses his wealth of experience and capacities to govern Abia state.

The press release reads:


The aforementioned group has come together to plead and beg Bishop Dr. Sunday N. Onuoha
to run as governor of Abia State in 2023.

Bishop Dr. Sunday Ndukwe Onuoha is the Founder and President of Vision Africa Radio, an organization that has changed the way Americans and Africans approach international aid.

In 2003, he was appointed Special Assistant on Privatization in the Presidential Cabinet of Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo.

In 2009, Sunday was chosen to lead the Nigerian Inter-Faith Action Association (NIFAA), which is the largest Christian-Muslim collaboration in history. Nigeria’s most prominent religious leaders – the Sultan of Sokoto and the Archbishop of the Catholic Church – personally selected Sunday for this role because he carries such a unique position of trust within the wide range of faith communities in Nigeria.

In 2011 Bishop Sunday’s picture was unveiled in the lobby of the United Nations, along with President George Bush and Prime Minister Tony Blair and others, as a World Champion in the fight against malaria.

In 2013 Bishop Sunday received the Global Peace Interfaith Leadership Award from the Global Peace Foundation for his efforts in advancing interfaith medical collaboration, humanitarian service and peace through Vision Africa and NIFAA.

Given the following antecedents of Bishop Dr. Sunday N. Onuoha, we the above mentioned group hereby demand that he runs for Abia State Governor in 2023.


National Association of Undergraduate Students in Nigeria (NAUSIN) demands that Bishop Dr. Sunday should accept to serve as governor of the Abia State. There is something special about him that made Ex- President Olusegun Obasanjo appoint him among his Presidential Cabinet, even when he is not a member of People’s Democratic Party (PDP) . We plead that he comes out to do those things, that other people saw in him. He is the best person to replace Dr. Victor Okezie Ikpeazu in the government house.

We have painstakingly taken a good look at the people coming out to become governor in 2023, but none is comparable to Bishop Sunday. He is the best among the people indicating interest to lead the state. He is a philanthropist who is mostly seen making donations and helping the needy in the society, only that he is not one of those who hide under the covering of charity to
pull publicity stunt and make noise.

Bishop Dr. Sunday is the best for now to govern the state, he is regularly asked to speak at, moderate and serve on panels of organizations or programs promoting world peace. He has
worked and still working in various countries of the world. We believe he has what it takes to move Abịa State Forward.
