In his press statement made available to newsmen in Abakaliki, said, "Having examined the political happenings in the State and in retrospection on the Power sharing in the State since 1996 vis-a-vis: Governorship position and the need to respect the existing arrangement hinged on power rotation among the 3 Senatorial Zones, I wish to state as follows:

"That I am in full support of power Rotation in the State which started from Ebonyi North, went to Central and now at South.

"That I believed that this power rotation has  enhanced peaceful coexistence, jettisoned marginalization and fostered egalitarianism in our State.

"That Ikwo has gone for Governor for good 8years and consequent upon this, there is need to reciprocate the support given to us by our Izzi brothers.

"That my Boss, Late Chief Fred Udogu was an advocate of equity, Justice, fairness and has greatly contributed to the political development of Ebonyi State and notwithstanding his absence, I shall stand on his principle and political stance which was that, power must return to Abakaliki bloc in 2023. 

"That Considering the political uncertainty in People's Democratic Party which has ploughed the party to logjam and jettisoned my interest to represent my people in the House of Assembly and the need to support a party and a candidate who has the interest of Ebonyians at heart; I hereby declare my unflinching support for APC in the forthcoming election and direct all my teaming supporters both in Ikwo and outside to follow suit and vote massively for APC, especially Rt Hon Nwifuru Francis  Ogbonna, our dear in-law as the next Governor of Ebonyi State.

"That this decision is based on my unquenchable passion to enthrone Good Governance in the State and to respect the existing power rotation in the State which has benefitted us".
