A former Secretary to Ebonyi State government and governorship aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in Ebonyi State, Professor Bernard Odoh, has said that with the new Electoral Law, ballot box snatching in 2023 general election in Nigeria would have no effect on results.

Odo, who spoke to journalists in Abakaliki, Ebonyi State capital, said the new law had given Ebonyi people the power to decide who governs them in 2023.

He said Ebonyi was desirous of a new leadership that would be willing to invest in the people.

The professor of geophysics lamented the increase of poverty and fall in standard of education in the state.

He called on the people to support his candidature in order to return the state to its lost glory.

Odoh said, “If you go round the state, you will see that people are not looking fresh because there’s poverty and hunger in the land.

“We need to invest in our people. We must begin to invest in our people to create opportunities for our people to look healthier; look after themselves, be able to train their children, pay their school fees, because they’ve future.

“Right now, the future here is bleak. I had interviews with teachers across the state, and our enrollment, I found out, has dropped more than seventy percent. Parents can no longer pay school fees because of the harassment and levies imposed on them to pay.

“We don’t have jobs here outside hotels and filling stations and there’s a need to immediately start doing things that will engender economic prosperity for our people.”
