In his speech at the event , Senator Ubah informed his listeners that the reason why his opponents are afraid of his participation in the Governorship race is because they know that he is going to trigger great transparency in the way and manner government bussiness is conducted in the State. He went on to reiterate his commitment towards the conduct of local government elections in his first six months in office while also declaring that any governor that shrouds his security vote accounting process in secrecy is no different from an armed robber.
Dr Umeadi, in his speech assured the Senator that himself in collaboration with other party stakeholders in Njikoka are going to do everything possible to deliver the votes of Ndi Njikoka to him and added further that his track records and antecedents gives him the edge above other candidates for the elections and makes their day efforts a whole lot easier.
