The aspirant who also regretted the alleged economic downturn, and backwardness in the Infrastructural development, hinted that the successive administrations in Abia state particularly have weaponized hunger, hardship, and penury, as people and residents of the state have been turned into food beggars, which can best be attributed to the lopsided and draconian policies and programs f the PDP administration in Abia state.
According to him, “PDP, APC, APGA are the same. No difference. They are conglomerates of strange bedfellows and those who have failed to deliver the basic democracy dividends with the mandate entrusted to them. Both parties lacked internal democracy and have disappointed the populaces in deepening the democratic process in the state and the country at large.

The Abia chieftain also expressed total dismay at the level of sycophancy among the majority of our leaders at all levels, who equally resort to trading of conscience, then to speaking truth to powers; and also, the unpatriotic citizens indulge in vote-buying during the electioneering period on their inordinate quest for during praising government that has failed woefully in all indices of governance.
