A National Assembly is hopeful for the Imo West Senatorial District of Imo State on the platform of the All Progressive Congress Amb. Greg Ozuomba-Mbadiwe (MFR), has solicited support from the delegates in today’s indirect primary election, and the main general election in 2023.
He emphasized that the time is now for him to take on higher responsibilities which will translate into much higher dividends of democracy which the people of the Imo west senatorial zone deserve owing to the sterling contributions numerous sons and daughters of the zone had made in making Nigeria great.
Mbadiwe, who was an ex-Nigerian Envoy to Congo, spoke in a statement forwarded to our correspondent on Saturday, reiterating his promise that if given the opportunity coupled with his wealth of knowledge, experience, and pedigree he is placed in the best position to give high-level quality representation which will, in turn, translate into a strong voice, thereby raising the bar in terms of material benefits he would attract to making Imo West Senatorial zone a much better place for her citizens.
According to the senatorial aspirant in the statement which partly read, “I write with the utmost sense of response seeking your permission and support to represent you at our nation’s highest legislative body (Senate).
“I do so fully conscious of the responsibilities I owe you and my modest way of saying a massive thank you for the support my father Dr. K. O Mbadiwe of blessed memory and I had received and continue to receive from you in the development of our political careers”.
Recall that Ambassador Greg Ozumba-Mbadiwe in February 2021, joined the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Imo state.
While speaking during a visit to the country home of the ex-Nigerian envoy at Ndi Aniche Arondizuogu in Ideato North local government area of Imo State, Governor Hope Uzodinma, declared that Mbadiwe’s defection to the APC would add value to the ruling party in Nigeria.
Uzodinma also said with the defection of Chief Mbadiwe to APC from PDP, many Igbo are heeding his calls for the southeast to connect to the national grid of politics through APC.
