During the event, he received Royal blessing (ite Nzu with prayers) when the traditional leaders told him to go ahead as he had their blessings as one of the candidates that is determined to achieve the Ohafia4Gov 2023 dream, praying for guidance and protection from almighty God unto victory.
Abia State has been at the receiving end when it comes to pragmatic leadership, the time has come for Abia to produce men with the administrative acumen to put the state back on her feet for even development that has eluded her for decades. That is why the prayer of the traditional leaders is a step in the right direction for the good of Abia State.
Recall that the favourite candidate of the Christian community in Abia state, Dr. Ukpai Iro Ukpai, had on December 21, 2022, met with Igbo Ministers Care Forum at Aba to chart a new path for Abia because one of his cardinal point of contest is that Abia State needs men with the fear of God that will rebuild her on the solid foundation of God, away from diabolical foundations that had kept Abia in shadow of herself.
The Church and Tradition have come to agreement that the time in now for Abia State to be liberated. Dr. Ukoai Iro Ukpai is the ordained for the lofty task of liberation.
