This Amaokpara Born Legal Luminary, Barrister Pascal Onwukaike was one of the very few honest men who put in all for the Action Alliance Guber Candidate in the 2019 Elections.
Barrister Onwukaike staked his profession, his family, his reputation, everything to see his brother Ugwumba Uche Nwosu emerge Governor of Imo State.
On several occasions I was with Barr. Pascal, all discussions he had with people was all Ugwumba Uche Nwosu, he never spared another topic, he always gave people reasons to support Ugwumba, a great job he did.
Barrister Onwukaike spent millions of naira, meeting with men, women and youths at Owerri and Nkwerre respectively convincing them to embrace Uche Nwosu, at a point, he spent money like a Mexico drug Barron, everyone around would feel it was Government money, but no, his personal earnings.
Agents of the PDP on several occasions asked him to return home (PDP), but he always responded saying ‘wherever my brother Ugwumba stands, that’s home for me’.
His level of commitment and belief in the Ugwumba project was one money couldn’t buy, on the day of result Collation at INEC office Owerri, I need not go into details on how he put his Legal Licence on the line for Ugwumba.
In whatever one does, make sure you have someone like Onwukaike who believes in you.
