2023: Abia Christian community, ACC, Unveils Ukpai Iro Ukpai as Consensus Candidate

by Amos Kalu


I, on behalf of Abia Christian Community ACC, present to you our consensus candidate for the 2023 Governorship election in the person of DR UKPAI IRO UKPAI, the NNPP Governorship Candidate, Abia State.


While other groups are bringing the governorship candidates together in an interactive forum with the intention of picking the best, ACC believes that outward appearance is very deceptive
and has not helped us since 1999 till date. We decided that since we have God who has come to deliver Abia to wait upon Him in a humble desire for Him to reveal His choice for Abia, we better wait to hear from Him.
Graciously this paid off. Today we are proud of our God, He still answers the prayers of His people.

We therefore present to the church and Ndi Abia the vessel God has anointed in the order of David, to destroy the foundations of idolatry in Abia seat of power, to reduce our pains and take away our shame. A man with the mandate to restore the God factor and community life and put Abia on the speed lane of progress.

Men and brethren I present to you Dr Ukpai Iro Ukpai, the NNPP Governorship candidate and Abia kinsman redeemer come 2023 governorship election in Abia State.

We have also other candidates for various offices adopted from various parties like Bar Ahamdi Nweke, Abia central senatorial zone and APGA candidate, Mr Frank Ifeanyi Rep Bende fed house from Labour party and others. Our aim is to gather Carpenters who will defray old political horns that wasted Abia irrespective of their political affiliations.


Ukpai Iro Ukpai is a born again, spirit filled child of God and a ruling Elder of the Presbyterian church of Nigeria.
He is our own, given in this season to champion the course of Abia redemption. Please see his profile below this message.

We owe Abia State the duty of standing by him to ensure God’s heart desire for Abia State is achieved.

Many of you reading this today know that Pastor Reminder C Gad has carried this burden of Abia redemption since 2005. I have held several conferences, leadership summits and prayer rallies all to communicate to Ndi Abia God’s plans for Abia redemption. And in this season I make bold to say that God has answered us.


In 2005 when the Lord showed me the horrible picture of Abia and how our leaders for quest for power sold the land into idolatry, He said that the redemption of Abia lies in the hand of the church.

What we have done is to stand as trail Blazer to help give direction to the church.
We request our fathers of faith, the pastors and the church at large to rise and take responsibility. In every dispensation God gives a man who will stand in the gap. Today God has given us Dr Ukpai Iro Ukpai

However on that fateful day Pilate presented to the Jews Jesus and Barrabas and asked them to choose but the Jews influenced by envious religious leaders chose Barrabas.

I have as a prophet fulfilled my prophetic role, I have fulfilled my mission, it is now left to the church and entire Abians to make their choice. The church has a critical choice to make in this political dispensation and I pray it will be a right one.

Ndi Abia! your set time of redemption is NOW! RIse up and embrace it.

God bless you abundantly.

Pastor Reminder C. Gad.
Convener, Abia Christian Community ACC.
