Sen Ugbuoji speaks on serving only one tenure as Ebonyi governor,

Sen. Sonni Ogbuoji, representing Ebonyi South Senatorial District, on Monday declared his interest to run for governorship in 2019, saying that he will serve for only one tenure, if given the mandate.

Ogbuoji, a ranking Senator, said this in Abakiliki on Monday during a press conference to formally declare his governorship ambition under the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

According to him, tenure of four years is enough for any genuine leader to accomplish his electoral promises.

He blamed the urge by politicians in Africa to remain in office for more than one term on greed.

Ogbuoji, a former commissioner in the state, promised that power would return to the Abakaliki bloc after his tenure.

He dismissed as unfounded the speculation that Ebonyi South would retain power for another eight years, if he was elected.

Ogbuoji said, “Anybody who is going into government and knows why he is going into government does not need more than four years to complete his assignment and leave office.

“Government is a continuum and a governor should exit after four years and negotiate with his successor on how to complete his projects.

“As a matter of fact, I see the quest for two tenures as the greed in politicians to have the full eight years provided by the constitution.

“Government will not start and end with you; it is a wrong notion often held by politicians that they are the most qualified to hold political office.

The senator, who is the Vice Chairman, Senate Committee on Appropriation, said that he had the capacity to deliver qualitative and credible governance, if elected as governor.

He said that the thrust of his administration would be to unite the different sections of the state which, he said, had been polarised by primordial interest.

He said that his administration would initiate policies and programmes to stimulate economic growth and development as well as job creation for youths through Information Communication Technology.

Ogbuoji said that he would ensure sustainable development in the education and agricultural sectors and that the road infrastructure would also receive priority attention.
