There is wild jubilation in Isingwu and Ohuhu the birth place of the legendary Dr M.I Okpara following the emergence of Hon Ugochukwu Ezeocha, as the consensus candidate of the Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP, for Umuahia North (Ohuhu) State Constituency race in the forthcoming 2023 General Election.
Hon Ugochukwu Ezeocha who hails from Amafor Isingwu Ohuhu in Umuahia North LGA of Abia State was announced the candidate of the PDP by the leadership of the party ahead of the issuance of certificate of return to the party’s candidates, which will take place tomorrow, 8TH June, 2022 at the party secretariat Umuahia.
The widespread celebration in Ohuhu came after long suspense over who will fly the PDP flag in Ohuhu constituency following the non-conduct of the primaries to pick the party’s candidate for the Umuahia North constituency.
However, the PDP in Ohuhu constituency had an unwritten agreement that the seat rotates between Umuhu and Okaiuga blocs, the two clans that make up Ohuhu.
Now it’s the turn of Umuhu and Isingwu was favoured to produce the lawmaker being the only ward yet to occupy the seat since the advent of the fourth republic.
Analysts opined that anything to the contrary would have spelled doom for the party in Ohuhu.
Ezeocha, a businessman cum politician who is one of the foundation members of PDP in Abia state, strongly believes that politics should be an avenue through which to render selfless service and touch human lives through quality legislation and representation.
Here is the full list of all the PDP candidates in Abia.
