A renowned preacher and General overseer of Eternal Light World Christian Church, Prophet Adol Awam yesterday indicated interest to contest the Ebonyi State governorship race under the platform of the All Progressives Congress , APC with the assurance that he would not just transform the state but will bring the needed industrial revolution lacking in the state.
Prophet Awam, who was the governorship candidate of the Action Congress of Nigerian ACN in the 2011general election in the state, insisted that for the All Progressives Congress to win the 2019 general election in the state, only a candidate from the Ebonyi North senatorial zone should be given the ticket of the party sighting the numerical strength, political consciousness, political accommodation and friendliness of the zone as the needed advantage.
Briefing journalists in Abakaliki, the governorship aspirant and former ALGON chairman in the state while debunking speculation that he was being sponsored by the present administration in the state stated that he decided to address the press conference to disabuse the minds of his supporters against such rumor and urged them to disregard such rumors as it is coming from his political detractors and never do well politicians.
According to him, as a strong politician from Ebonyi North senatorial zone which has the highest capacity and strength in the state, I stand the chance of winning the 2019 general election and becoming the next governor of the state and I want to state that Governor David Umahi can never sponsor and will never contribute to my governorship ambition.
The APC governorship aspirant expressed optimism that the APC would win the 2019 general election without any hitch in the state , adding that his administration would give priority to the welfare of Ebonyians and industrialization of the state.
“I want to use this medium to call on all APC faithful and indeed all Ebonyians in the state to rise up and put on their armour (which is PVC) to face the challenges in the state and work closely to see that APC wins the election come 2019. The time is now and together we can make it”.
