Abia State Candidate Onyekwere Uche Vows to Address Leadership Ineptitude and Corruption
Onyekwere Uche, the Abia State Action Alliance governorship candidate, has pointed out that the economic struggles of the state are due to leadership incapability and corruption. In a speech given in Umuahia on Sunday, Uche expressed his desire to shift the narrative of the state from underdevelopment and regression to becoming a progressive leader and freeing Abia from political and economic oppression.
Uche criticized those in charge of the state for misusing their opportunities to improve the lives of citizens and instead indulging in a relentless pursuit of wealth. He claimed that funds meant for the development of the state were illicitly converted into personal wealth by corrupt individuals. As a result, he said, there are a few people in the state who are wealthier than the entire state while the majority of citizens live in poverty.
To bring about change, Uche pledged to establish a government of the people that will alter the fate of Abians. He promised that the problems of infrastructure, accreditation issues at the Abia State University, poor treatment of doctors, and rewards for failure will be a thing of the past under his leadership.
