Governorship candidate of African Democratic Congress ADC, in Abia State, Bishop Sunday Onuoha says, if elected as governor come 2023, he would cut down the cost of governance and the excesses would be used to accommodate the rising wage bill and welfare of the people.
He stated this during a meeting with Heads of Media establishments in Abia State held at the Conference room of Vision Africa radio Umuahia.
Onuoha, who used the opportunity to unveil his eleven point agenda of what he termed the New Abia, described Abia situation as pathetic, disclosing that he has the mandate from his fellow bishops, the church to rescue the State.
He maintained that, as one who is coming from a religious background as an ordained bishop, he is bound to do things differently to salvage the future of Ndi Abia who he said are yearning for change, insisting that towing the same line would mean mortgaging the next generation.
Bishop Onuoha, who is also the president of Vision Africa International noted that as an Aba brought up, he has that magic pointer to open up Aba which he said would invariably open up the State for businesses to thrive.
On security, the Governorship hopeful said he would empower the Local people through their leaders including both traditional, President Generals and religious leaders, vigilante groups, as well as the youths, who will work in collaboration with security agents to secure the communities.
