He said: “But despite all their efforts, youths and human capital development are still suffering in Ebonyi, while poverty is still massively prevalent in our homes which among other things is the reason am declaring my intention to run for the position of Governor of Ebonyi State with the intention to do things differently by the grace of God if given the opportunity to serve the people.
“With the above experiences, and more, my governroship race will be in total engagement with the youths, the suffering workers, artisans, middle class, core professionals, our elders and those who desire human and rural development of Ebonyi State.

“It is on this premise that that I named my campaign slogan “Ebonyi will be happy again”, I will be human and welfarist driven while maintaining the existing structures and focusing on rural development.
“If elected, I shall immediately embark on full restoration of the glory of Ebonyi, and make you the people the cornerstone of Government to revamp the environment that has become a den of hunger, anger, politically induced hate and communal clashes.”
