Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu (Dr), the longest serving member of the Board of Trustees (BOT) of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) said he has every information about all the members of PDP in Imo State as the longest serving member who has never pitched his tent with another political party since coming into the party, ” I can give you the testimonial of every person in PDP, vote for Emeka Ihedioha, he is credible”.
“He has been selected by PDP, and you have to work with him, Emeka Ihedioha is credible, he is loyal, he respectful and I can testify for him.”
Speaking in the same manner at official kick off, PDP campaigns for 2019 general elections, at St. Mary’s Catholic Parish Ubomiri in Mbaitolilocal government area Achike Udenwa, the former governor of the state extolled the admirable qualities in Emeka Ihedioha and asked Imo people to go beyond party lines and vote for Emeka Ihedioha the governorship candidate and all PDP candidates.
While describing the administration of Rochas Okorocha as a very big loss to Imo people, Udenwa who is from Orlu zone just like Rochas Okorocha, said particularly to the people of Owerri zone, “we have ruled for 16 years but if you allow us (Orlu zone) to rule for 24 years you are ‘mumu’.Tell your people (Owerri zone) who vote for Orlu that they are selling their future and the future of their children”.
“Ihedioha is good, Ihedioha is credible, Ihediohais a responsible person, he has given us assurance that things will return to normalcy again and this is the right opportunity both at the state and federal levels”.
And Jude Ejike Njoku, former Vice Chancellor of the Federal University of Technology Owerri (FUTO), a professor of Agricultural Economics who contested the governorship primary with Ihedioha alongside others but was not favoured told the cheering crowd to vote for Ihedioha and testified also for Ihedioha’s credibility.
Emeka Maduagwu, former Speaker, Imo House of Assembly who spoke on behalf of his colleagues affirmed their support also Greg Mbadiwe, former Ambassador to the Democratic Republic of Congo and first son of Kingsley OzumbaMbadiwe of the blessed memory, testified for the credibility of Ihedioha just as EbereUdeagu,former Deputy Governor lent credence to ability and transparency of the PDP candidate, Emeka when he becomes the Governor of the state.
Meanwhile, Charles Ezekwem,the PDP Chairman, in the State, introduced Ihedioha as a person who has the credibility, capacity and competence to move Imo State forward again.
“Emeka is the best this party has presented to Imo people” and his rulership would also bring a good change, the change for good the Imo people desire.
Ihedioha , who walked briskly to the podium told Imo people that Imo state under his leadership would focus on critical areas like, provision of power in the state , improvements in the education sector, healthcare delivery system, provision of infrastructure, sustainable youth and women development as well as empowerment.
His administration would also ensure the payment of workers’ salaries and pensions to retired civil servants, training and retraining of teachers, industrial and rural development would also be a priority for his administration.
Emeka Ihedioha ceased the opportunity of the flag off the campaigns to tell people to make it a must to vote for Atiku Abubakar the presidential candidate of PDP and his running mate, Peter Obi at the presidential election coming in a few weeks from now.
