Lagos - Abia State Governor, Theodore Orji, assured President Goodluck Jonathan of the state’s support in next year’s presidential election.
The incumbent, who leads the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), looks likely to face a stiff challenge from the All Progressives Congress’ (APC’s) Muhammadu Buhari for the top post.
“Abia will be the last state to abandon Jonathan. The President had shown enough interest in the state hence he deserves their support,” Orji said during a fund-raising event held in Umuahia North Local Government Area of the state.
