Governorship candidate of the African Democratic Congress (ADC) in Abia, Bishop Sunday Onuoha, says that the state needs spiritual cleansing to progress.

Mr Onuoha said this when he addressed members of an Umuahia-based socio-political organisation, Oganihu Ndi-Abia, as part of his consultations with stakeholders.

“Our iniquity as a people is enormous and our place is stinking. We need to cleanse our land spiritually. Once we come into office, we shall devote the first two weeks to pray and fast to cleanse the land.

“Our children and future generations have been mortgaged but we shall pray to recover our land,” Mr Onuoha, who is a Methodist Bishop, said.

He, therefore, promised to leverage his clout as a man of God to recover Abia and “open a new page for the state”.

The clergyman and politician said until Abians took cognisance of the spiritual aspect of the state, Abia would remain unprogressive.

“This is why I have offered myself and I know that God will not leave Abia alone. God will redeem Abia,” the cleric-turned politician said.
