The Aba-South (PDP) senator disclosed this while answering questions from journalists at an event in Obingwa and Aba North Local Government Areas.

The former deputy governor said he has informed Gov Okezie Ikpeazu of his ambition.

“We respect constituted authority. I believe my future political ambition should be made known to my Governor who is the number one citizen in my state,” he said.

According to him, the drive is honor.

”So, what I’m telling Ndi Abia is that they should expect Mmagha Ndigbo as their next Governor in 2023″.

”I have gone to DSS custody because of Nigeria. I have fought many wars. And my people have looked at my antecedents and decided to honour me. They should expect more of those qualities in me”, he said.
