I’m Confident Of Victory, Says Prof ACB Agbazuere At Abia Election Debate Debacle

By NewsCritic Reporters

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, candidate for Isialangwa North/South federal constituency seat in the 2023 General Election, Prof ACB Agbazuere, has expressed confidence of winning in the February 25, election with the improvement in the electoral process by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.

Prof ACB Agbazuere, who was until recently the Chief of Staff to Abia State Governor, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu, stated this when he featured at the Abia State Election Debate which was hosted by Family Love FM Umuahia, alongside his main rival, Hon Ginger Onwusibe, the Labour Party candidate.

 Agbazuere who took time to explain the job of a lawmaker to his audience, said he is interested about social security for the masses. “I said I’m concerned about social security for the masses. I’ll ensure that there are welfare packages for the jobless and the aged in the society. In fact, I’ll do my best to promote people-oriented laws to address these issues”, he submits.

Also, the PDP candidate, who once served as Executive Chairman Isiala Ngwa South LGA promised to give the people of Isialangwa North/South constituency a strong and respected voice at the National Assembly, adding that he is going there to render selfless service to the people.

Said he “I’ll give my people a voice that will be heard and respected, and will also ensure that the Ntigha Dry Sea Port which has lingered for a long time get started within my first one year as lawmaker”, he assured.

Prof Agbazuere answering to a question about his stewardship as former government appointee and elected chairman, said as LGA Chairman he always put the people first. According to him “I am the only LGA chairman that tarred roads and drilled borehole in all the wards. I have gone to my people now to tell me what they need and I promised to attend to some if not all of them when elected.

“As the General Manager of ASPIM before my elevation to Chief of Staff, it is on record that I cleared all the salaries arrears and made payment of salaries a priority under my watch with the same income. I undertook the deroofing of the building and landscaping project, but in all workers welfare was key. I refused to buy myself an official car. The basic problem we have in this country is selflessness, people should be able to serve and give back to the society that’s is patriotism”, he stressed.

However, the debate didn’t end without some drama as the two candidates threw jabs at each other. The PDP candidate got worked up when the LP candidate Hon Ginger Onwusibe described his professorship as questionable, while answering to a question.

In response Prof Agbazuere described Ginger as a dull student, who was in his class and never answered to any question put to him as a law student. “Let him go and verify on the portal of NUC and see the Professor there, I am Google Scholar… if he has become disrespectful to me, I will curse him, he retorted.

“This man he is talking to taught him and I will ask questions in the class he won’t be able to answer because he is not a bright student. He paid school fees to have me teach him constitutional law in second year… he came here to deride the state government yet I have documents of all the millions of naira released to him by the governor to execute the projects he is now claiming to his credit, simply because he lost the primaries”.
