Osita OkechukwuÂ hails from Eke, in Udi Local Council. Okechukwuâ€™s firebrand disposition as the APC south-east geopolitical zone spokesperson was largely responsible for driving APCâ€™s presence to the consciousness of the people.
Regarded as most competent and favored for the position, his amiable stance is seen as a magic wand that can build structures, machinery and galvanize support for the party ahead of the 2019 general elections.
Observers say he is one man that can constructively engage the PDP state apparatus on developmental programmes with a view of charting the partyâ€™s cause.
Former governorship candidate of the Congress for Progressive Change,CPC,in 2011, has a BSc from the University of Nigeria, UNN, in 1983. His grass roots reach stands him among other contenders who appear aloof to the electorates in the state.
His experience in politics can always come handy as he equally represented CPC in the merger committee that led to the formation of the APC.
