Bishop Onuoha set to declare for Abia governorship as ADC decries money politics

Bishop Sunday Onuoha is set to formally declare for the Abia State 2023 governorship race under the platform of the African Democratic Congress, ADC.

The Item, Bende Local Government Area- born cleric who has been under intense pressure to join the governorship race will likely emerge the sole candidate of ADC, where he has of late, moved over to.

He was initially expected to run under the ruling People’s Democratic Party, PDP, but may have jettisoned the idea as he has joined the ADC.

Bishop Onuoha was the beautiful bride at ADC party congress at Kolping Society Umuahia when he stormed the arena with his swarming crowd of supporters.

This is as the Abia State Chairman of the party,  Mr Donorman Obinna, has decried what he called ” money politics” in the state, describing the phenomenon as a danger signal. The former News Editor of the New Telegram, who spoke during the congress of the party in Umuahia, identified the party’s greatest challenge as changing the mindset of electorates in the state from money  politics to idealogy politics.

“Our greatest challenge is how to convince Abians to change their orientation and make them abandon  money politics. “For the past 24 years the PDP has taught them that politics is all about sharing money during elections.
