Imo Guber poll: Anyanwu asks electorates to reject PDP, LP, adduce reason
Former member of the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the governing All Progressives Congress in Nigeria, Chief Nduka Anyanwu, has spoken on the forthcoming November 11 gubernatorial poll in Imo state by the Independent National Electoral Commission.
He called on eligible imo voters to reject Peoples Democratic Party and the labour party, reiterating that both parties has no meaningful agendas to engender economic and infrastructural growths in imo state.
Mr Anyanwu who was the deputy National Publicity Secretary of the defunct All Nigerian Peoples Party, asked imolites to queue behind and cast bulk votes for APC to ensure Governor Hope Uzodinma is reelected for another four years term in office on conclusion of upcoming imo gubernatorial seat poll by the national electoral commission.
He asserted that imo governor has recorded giants strides in the enhancement of imo economy and the development of critical infrastructures in every rural and urban areas in the eastern state.
The Abia party stalwart also boasted that Uzodinma’s performance in last four years in imo superceded that of many who were opportune and entrusted with people’s mandate but failed to demonstrate capacity towards addressing myriads of challenges that has continued impeded efforts of the state to attain economic greatness.
Anyanwu partly stated: “If previous administrations in Imo state had yielded to pressure to construct roads in the communities, the communities in the state would have all been developed by now.
“But this current state governor, Senator Uzodinma kept his earlier electoral promise to people of Imerienwe community to construct the 29km Imerienwe/Upe/Obokwe/Etche Road, which had been abandoned for past 40 years and since the second Republic.
“Previous administrations had tinkered the idea but couldn’t lift a finger on it, but Governor Hope Uzodimma mobilized his contacts and goodwill to ensure the road project come to reality.
“He equally mobilized his contacts and goodwill to attract the construction of owerri-okigwe road, owerri-orlu road and owerri-mbaise/obowo/umuahia road, which are all federal highways. And the Governor did not only get one of such roads but got three”.
He further applauded the imo governor on his determination to embark on the oguta lake/orashi river development project, which he noted, would bring a seaport and a free trade zone.
Anyanwu maintained the already-recorded democratic gains by the present administration in imo had given Uzodinma an edge to be reelected for another term in office ahead of candidates of other political parties jostling the state governorship seat.
