Ebonyi Is One Of The Poorest States In Nigeria – Governorship Aspirant


A People’s Democratic Party (PDP) governorship aspirant in Ebonyi has described the state as one of the poorest in the country.

He stated this when he  submitted his nomination form at the party’s headquarters in Abuja, on Friday.

Odii said, “Our greatest challenge is because Ebonyi today is today one of the poorest states in the country. We have our people in many places, we need to get them informed; we need to bring them back and empower them.”

He said drawing from his wealth of experience as a business mogul, he would focus on creation of wealth for the indigent persons of Ebonyi state, more so, focus on human capital development.

He expressed the need to vote out the APC government and replace it with a PDP-led state government, saying it would be a grave mistake if the people failed to effect the change.

In his words, “I feel very delighted that my people are with me and I am with my people. The love I have for the people and the love they have for me, if I am given the mantle of leadership to govern Ebonyi state, I will create wealth for our people and I will focus on human capital development.

“I have been an entrepreneur and it is something I have been doing all through my life. I have helped businesses and watched it grow and I want to repeat that template and make it work in our state because governance is all about wealth creation for your people so that the suffering can be eliminated.”

Also, the former Deputy Chairman of PDP, Hon. Onwe Onwe, said Ebonyi remains a PDP state despite the current APC-led government, stating that the people of Ebonyi strongly stand with Odii because of his track records.
