The Candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance in the upcoming Imo State governorship election, Tony Ejiogu, said it was time to rebuild Imo State.
Ejiogu made the call as he ended his campaign on Thursday, November 9, 2023, with a pledge to serve the people of the State with integrity and commitment.
He said that it was necessary to regain the lost glory of Imo State which has been rampaged by insecurity, poor public infrastructure, unemployment, comatose health sector and the neglect of workers and pensioners’ welfare.
He made these promises while addressing a crowd of supporters at Owerri North, assuring them of the beginning of a new dawn in Imo politics.
The accomplished financial and business development expert said it’s “time to rebuild Imo.
“I want tJJo sincerely thank our party faithful and Imolites for their labour of love and support since we started this journey. I’ll never take your efforts for granted, I have resolved that in line with our party manifesto, we’ll ensure that our state is rescued and repositioned for greatness.”
While urging his party supporters and Imolites to troop out en masse to vote for APGA come Saturday, November 11th, Ejiogu urged them to conduct themselves peacefully and ensure that their votes count, according to Vanguard.
“I speak to your consciences. Let’s all come together and make this project a reality. Vote and protect your vote, stand there and make sure your vote is counted. There will be no voter intimidation,” he said.
He added, “I have presented myself and taken the bold step, and we are well-positioned to move Imo to the promised land. Yes, there’s hunger in the land, but change your mindset and don’t accept money to vote for people who will still keep you in bondage. Let’s make things right.”
Those present at the event include the state chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, the deputy governorship candidate, Director-General of the Tony Ejiogu Campaign, ward chairmen, women, youth leaders, elder statesmen and a host of other stakeholders.
From August 31 when he unveiled his plan to rebuild Imo, Ejiogu has traversed the nooks and crannies of Imo State, covering over 21 local government areas, including places like Obube Ancient Kingdom, where no politician has ever visited despite the community’s historic significance.
