“Mrs Emana Ambrose- Amawhe comes with a high pedigree as her Resume here attached will speak eloquently to.”
Ikem noted that in arriving at the decision, “We have taken into consideration geopolitical spread, ethnic and political balancing, and even gender sensitivity,” he added.

“We wish the Party the best as we move surely towards our destiny with fate in 2023.”
