Senate Minority Leader, Enyinnaya Abaribe, has assured that if elected, he will be governor of all Abians.
Abaribe said this when he declared on Monday through a Facebook photo statement in which the lawmaker was seen brandishing his Nomination/Declaration of Interest Form.
“I will be governor for All Abians!!” Senator Abaribe pledged.
At the PDP secretariat in Umuahia, the state capital, Abaribe promised that he would be the governor that Abians would be proud of.
“I am going to be not just a governor but the governor of Abia people irrespective of where the person comes from,” he said.
The lawmaker, who was deputy governor at the start of the fourth republic, contested for the governorship position in 2003 but could not unseat Orji Uzor Kalu, the Abia governor who he once served as a deputy.
However, in 2007, Abaribe was elected Senator for Abia South Senatorial District and has retained the seat ever since, and has been a powerful voice in the red chamber.
