May 26 (Newshour.com.ng) – The stage is almost set for the much coveted office of the governor of Imo State as notable political movements are being observed daily.
With just few months away to the November 11,2023 governorship election, the Accord party candidate, Ikenga Johnjude Okere, has again taken to the media by raising his voice to give reasons why he remains the only preferred choice for the governorship race. Thus, enjoining all well meaning Imolites to rally around him with their support to enable him re-engineer Imo State positively through a leadership that would be impactful.
In a press briefing with journalists in Owerri, he mentioned, that Imo was currently in a crossroads which made it remain in a pitiable state. He added that such abnormalities could only be corrected by someone who practically understood, the issues. Someone who is ready and willing to take a complete shift from the present administrative rascality so as to liberate Imolites from our political misfortune.
Continuing, he expressed that no sane people could survive appropriately in Imo State with the present way of governance because, the voices of the people are not heard even as their will and wishes and aspirations of the masses were trampled upon through election manipulation and bizarre rigging. He attributed this ugly development to the major cause of insecurity in the entire Imo State.
According to Ikenga Johnjude, “campaigns are about to commence and electorate are expected to show solidarity in support of their preferred candidate which implies, that everyone should be given a level playing ground to show their niche which would be finalized in the polls.
“Based on the above, it is expected that the outcome of every election should be strictly obeyed irrespective of who it is in his favour, because, the people are the ones that ought to decide through their votes whom they want and how they want to be governed”.
Futhering, he stressed the fact that candidates in the race must learn to comport themselves by playing according to the rules that govern the election. He equally called on the national electoral body, INEC, to ensure it obeys its own laws by living above board, a factor Ikenga Johnjude said guarantees fairness, equity and justice.
The Accord candidate advised the masses to always understand that it is their constitutional rights to hold public officers accountable.
In conclusion he reiterated that no people can survive both economically or otherwise unless the wishes of the masses are obeyed which is the key to achieve any meaningful growth and development.
