Popular broadcaster, Theodore Chinonso Ubah has said he decided to contest for a seat at the House of Representatives because of the abuse of the rights of Imolites by the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Ubah, popularly known as Nonsonkwa offered the explanation in a statement made available to National Newsbreak on Sunday.

He stated that his allegiance is to the people of Mbaitoli/Ikeduru Federal Constituency, pointing out that he has no godfather or godmother to defer to.

According to him, he is not being sponsored by anyone neither has he taken oath of subservience to anyone.

He submitted that his candidacy is being driven by the people, adding that his representation will encompass the entire Igbo land if he wins the 2023 poll.

Nonsonkwa said he is not one to keep mute on matters affecting any part of Igbo land, promising to galvanize the people to ensure peace and prosperity of the race. 

He said he would not allow further violation of the rights of innocent people either by government or security agencies.

The candidate of the African Democratic Congress (ADC) promised to open an office in Owerri which will handle cases of violation of rights of the people, saying that lawyers would be on ground to seek redress for people whose rights have been trampled upon.

He said; “As a representative of Ndi Imo sent to the National Assembly by Ndi Mbaike, Nonsonkwa will propose a bill criminalizing non-payment of workers’ salaries and pensions.

“If the governor and his deputy can receive their monthly salaries, so must workers and pensioners deserve theirs too.

“Students in Federal Polytechnic Nekede, FUTO, AIFCE would benefit from the bill we shall propose for a uniform school fees across federal institutions in Nigeria.

“The era of a rector, provost or VC arbitrarily hiking school fees or acceptance fees and text books will be over. I hate to see people suffer unnecessarily and It breaks my heart when people use their positions to make people suffer”.
