As the wind of political change prepares to blow the South-East direction, the focus is predictably on one strong son of the soil-the Ikeoha Uburu and Akajiugo Nnewi Dr Ogbonnaya Onu, a first-class Chemical Engineering and Doctor of Philosophy holder. Born December I, 1951, the current Honorable Minister of Science and Technology and former Presidential candidate of the All Nigerian Peoples Party (ANPP) are rapidly becoming the cynosure of all eyes as he is expected to wear the big shoes and pilot the first Igbo presidency come 2023.
A former President of African Students Union and a fellow of the Nigerian Society of Engineers Ogbonnaya Onu was the pioneer governor of the old Abia State of Nigeria. A true democrat and party loyalist, the University of California trained chemical Engineer is the darling of the people and consistently available to serve them. He has integrity, character and all the potentials of leadership. Until then, it is guaranteed that he will continue to play a more crucial role in his current position as a close associate of the president.
