The Gubernatorial Candidate of PDP in Abia State, Chief Okey Ahiwe has reiterated that the legacies of the Late Prof Uche Ikonne will not only be maintained but that his all manifestoes will be implemented to the latter. Chief Ahiwe said this, when select members of the UCHE NDI ABIA YOUTH ASSEMBLY (UNAYA) which is a pet foundation of Dr. Uche Ikonne paid him an endorsement visit at his Ntigha country home at the wee hours of today.
Continuing, the PDP Governorship hopeful, promised that the fourty percent youth inclusiveness as proposed by the Late Ikonne’s manifesto is non-negotiable, as youths are the fulcum of any successful Government. Having got the blessings of the Ikonne family and having being a close ally of the deceased there was no gainsaying the fact that there’d be any missing link anywhere. Hence the need for all hands to be on deck for more organic support for all PDP flag bearers, Chief Ahiwe Concluded.
