While emphasising that he would be a practical leader, Onunkwo said: “What people need is a governor that is accessible and will engage the people. One that can wear a knicker and khaki, talk to them in terms they will understand and give them that promise that will be bonded with covenant.

“If I become governor, I will calm down fray nerves for my continuous engagement with humility, transparency that will be bonded in honesty.
