“At the last concluded Presidential elections held on 25th February, 2023, we mobilized all our members in the 17 LGAs and ensured they voted for Mr. Peter Obi, the new face of democracy. We are confident that Mr. Peter Obi shall be recover the mandate we gave him through legal means.”
“As earlier mentioned, we have scrutinized all Governorship Candidates. Ours is not about loyalty to party, ours is to ensure that the best Candidate emerges”.
“Therefore, we have after series of appraisal unanimously adopt and endorse the Candidate of African Democratic Congress(ADC) Bishop Dr. Sunday N. ONUOHA. He is the Candidate that will cleanse and clean Abia State. He is the Candidate with the requisite qualifications to lead ndị Abia at this moment. Infact, Bishop Dr. Sunday Onuoha needs no introduction because he is a household name in Abia State. Here is a man, who singlehandedly employed hundreds of youths through Vision Africa. Here is a man, who has paid the GCE fees and school fees for many youths including Afara prisoners. Bishop Dr. Sunday Onuoha is the man whom the cap fits.”
“Aware of the fact that we have the Abia Charter of Equity, aware that relying on Abia Charter of Equity, it’s the turn of Abia North to produce the next Executive Governor of Abia State and finally aware of the fact that Bishop Dr. Sunday Onuoha is from Abia North, it is naturally clear that ndị Abia North have a competent, experienced and eminently qualified Candidate in the person of Bishop Dr. Sunday Onuoha, the Governorship Candidate of ADC.”
“Apart from the fact that BISHOP DR. Sunday Onuoha is the only Candidate that can bring ndị Abia together to work for peace and good governance, he was one of the few Governorship Candidates of other parties that openly campaigned and canvassed support for the Labour Party Presidential Candidate Mr. Peter Obi. We shall reciprocate this bold gesture at the Governorship election.”
“We want to use this medium to call on ndị Abia of voting age to come out in their numbers and vote Bishop Dr. Sunday Onuoha come Saturday 18th of March, 2023. After voting, stay back and protect your votes.”
“Finally, Your Excellency Bishop Dr. Sunday Onuoha, we wish you once again happy birthday in advance and many more years. We also wish you victory at the polls this coming Saturday, 18th March, 2023. May God continue to bless and protect you for us.”

Noting that Abia deserves the best he pledged to be faithful to Abians and to God in Character and in words noting that Abians should hold him by his words.
