FORMER President Ibrahim Babangida has more to tell Nigerians soon on the nation’s march to 2011, a close associate, Reagan Ufomba, has said.
According to Ufomba, Babangida is a principled man and has taken “a principled position.
He has more to tell Nigerians soon,” he said.
Ufomba, the All Progressive Grand Alliance, APGA, governorship aspirant in Abia State in 2011, also said he was not threatened by the incumbency factor being enjoyed by Governor Theodore Orji of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, noting Abians had been yearning for change.
Ufomba said he was very confident that there will be a change in the state because the people had long been yearning for change as a result of underdevelopment the state had witnessed over the years.
Ufomba, who spoke shortly after he was announced as a recipient of Excellency of Award by the Immaculate Conception Seminary, Ahiaeke, Umuahia, which incidentally is his alma mater, regretted what he called “bad governance” which has been thriving in the state.
“Abians have been yearning for a godly governor. It is a missing link. Nobody is a threat. I am confident that I will emerge because Abians are yearning for change from bad governance.
“It is all about us. It is good to wipe out the bad government and do away with the locust days,” Ufomba said.
Reminded that the number of governorship aspirants in the state was rising by the day, Ufomba disagreed, saying the number was rather reducing.
“The chaff are being sifted and the seeds will be planted on the good soil to bear good fruits,” he said.
