The battle of who succeeds Hon Nkiru Onyejeocha at the green chamber come 2019 has been drawn and there’s no going back. Though no individual has been given a green light from his or her political parties as all the aspirants are still seeking the blessings of some stakeholders, political godfathers, and some political bigwigs in the state and outside the state to endorse them for the big task ahead.
Hon Nkiru Onyejeocha has been representing Isuikwuato/Ummuneochi Constituency at the Federal House of Rep for the past 12years and still nursing the ambition of running for the fourth time in a roll but she was met with some obstacles as some Isuikwuato media gurus started a campaign against her fourth time agenda mid last year and that pave ways and gave some momentum to some aspirants today. Hon Nkiru Onyejeocha who has been representing Isuikwuato/Ummuneochi under People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has been having some internal issues with her party and has been jumping from one political parties to another seeking refuge but all seems to be refusing her quest to join them.
