“Without being told, you know that Ebonyi people have been yearning for me. And I have already presented myself to them.“Those contesting with me know that I’m going to beat them. Even if you ask them, they will tell you I will beat them.”

The senator who captioned his campaign slogan, ‘Ebonyi Will be Happy Again’ had during his declaration of his intention to run for governorship election, frowned at the level of poverty and youth unemployment in the state and pledged to develop programmes that would change the narrative if elected the governor in 2023.

“Our government will be basically welfarist and building the capacity of our economy so that we can provide jobs for the youths, make Ebonyi attractive, suitable and secure for businesses,” Ogba said, adding that he would focus on rural development.
