“This comes months after it has been touted that he was considering to take the position after a collectively accepted wonderful performance in his yet to be concluded the first term.

“Speaking at his Umuozu Ward where the declaration took place, Hon. Ozurigbo made it known that his intention to run for a second term was on the basis of the huge development he has ushered into the federal constituency which he noted will even be surpassed in his second term.

“Ozurigbo who is also the man to beat at the coming PDP House of Representatives primaries, while speaking to the four PDP LGA delegates at their various LGA headquarters, promised to do his utmost best to bring back the lost glory of the PDP by ensuring the party comes first at the general elections.

“He noted that this would only happen if the delegates made the right decision of sending a tested and trusted candidate to represent them rather than dwelling on dismissible prejudice of sectional positioning.”
