Victory to Yoruba-Igbo Man Anthony Chinasa-Abiola, Wins Seat In Abia House Of Assembly

Anthony Chinasa-Abiola, a Yoruba man, has been elected to represent Umuahia Central Constituency at the Abia State House of Assembly, in a remarkable demonstration of unity and emphasis on competence over tribal affiliations. Running under the Labour Party, Abiola’s candidacy has been highly praised for promoting harmony among Nigeria’s diverse communities.

Initially, concerns were raised about the Abiola name and how it related to his candidacy, but Anthony Chinasa-Abiola quickly dismissed such concerns, clarifying that the name was a nickname and that he is, in fact, a full-blooded Igbo man. He further explained that his father is Yoruba, while his mother is Igbo.
