The Governor who is vying for the Abia South Senatorial seat, was in the area with his team on Thursday and Friday, where he campaigned in wards across Aba South and Aba North, where he praised the people, for supporting his administration these past seven and a half years.
He pointed out that he was able to build some infrastructure which among them, was the rehabilitation of roads, and educational and health facilities.
But, speaking in the local Ngwa dialect, he said he realized the need to do more, hence the quest to go to the Senate, to attract more development projects to the commercial city for the good of its people.
