By Steve Oko
The bid by former Leader, ECOWAS Parliament, Senator Mao Ohuabunwa, to return to the Senate, received a major boost, Monday, following his adoption by three political parties as their consensus candidate for the February 25 senatorial contest.
Senator Ohuabunwa who is the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, senatorial candidate, was jointly adopted by the New Nigeria Peoples Party, NNPP; Social Democratic Party, SDP; and the Accord Party, AP, who said they had no candidates for the election.
Wawa News Global reports that Senator Ohuabunwa’s acceptance across Abia North has continued to swell up.

Members of the affected party who declared this during a meeting with Ohuabunwa at Ojukwu Bunker Umuahia, said they arrived at the decision after a careful assessment of all candidates jostling for the seat, and discovered that the former Leader, House of Representatives stood tall above others.

They said that Abia North had almost gone voiceless since after the ‘2019 mistake’, and vowed to return Ohuabunwa to the Senate to redeem the image and integrity of the zone.
The delegation which came from various communities in Abia North, vowed that a man who shamelessly lied that there was no network service coverage in the zone during the debate on Electoral Act bill, would not be rewarded with continuity.

Speaking on behalf of his party members, the SDP Chairman in Bende Local Government Area, Chief Friday Uko, said Ohuabunwa’s antecedents as a seasoned Parliamentarian could not be controverted.
He said it was a disgrace for Abia North to be represented by a mediocre when the zone had competent and vocal legislators who had distinguished themselves in lawmaking.
Similarly, the Chairman of NNPP in Bende, Mr Chinatu Nwachukwu who spoke on behalf of members of the party in Abia North, said they decided to support Ohuabunwa because it had dawned on them that the zone had been on the reverse gear since his exit from the Senate in 2019.
He said that the disgrace and shame the mistake of 2019 brought on Abia North should not be allowed to go beyond the current legislative assembly.
In the same vein, Sunday Chimezie who spoke for the Accord Party, reeled out some of the landmark bills sponsored by Ohuabunwa as well as his outstanding achievements of Senator Ohuabunwa which he said, had put him above others in law making.

He said that Abia North had learnt in a hard way, the mistake of fielding the zone’s second eleven in place of its first eleven.
He assured Ohuabunwa of a resounding victory at the forthcoming poll, saying Abia North had decided to get rid of mediocrity.

In a remark former Commissioner for Education and the Chairman of Ohuabunwa Campaign Council in Bende LGA, Dr P. C Mba, said there were obvious sings that Abia North would witness vote revolution in favour of the PDP candidate in the February senatorial poll.
He urged the people to arm themselves with their Permanent Voter Cards, PVCs, ahead of the exercise, assuring them that Ohuabunwa will not let the zone down when he returns to the Senate.
Responding, Senator Ohuabunwa thanked the delegation for reposing confidence in him and for their show of support.
He promised not to disappoint them, adding that his return to the Senate, is to restore the dignity of Abia North.
 Senator Ohuabunwa  said that Abia “operates on faulty foundation, and requires spiritual cleansing to operate better.”
According to him, a former Governor of the state dragged the state into idolatry, a negative influence he regretted, still affects the progress of the state.
He said that the said Governor laid a wrong foundation which had to be uprooted first for the state to witness the desired development, submitting that until the problem of Abia is first tackled spiritually, meaningful development will remain elusive in the state.
Senator Ohuabunwa further regretted that the same powers which ruined Abia nows hold Abia North zone to ransom.
The former Senate Committee Chairman on Primary Health and Communicable Diseases, said It was shameful that Abia North which produced vocal senators, had suddenly become a laughing stock at the red chamber.
Senator Ohuabunwa particularly promised that all the Primary Health centres he attracted in the zone would be equipped if he returned to the Senate.
He equally promised to leverage on his privileged position to vigorously fight the worrisome spate of insecurity in Abia North.
