Lamenting the state’s rising insecurity, which has resulted in terrible massacres and carnage of adolescents, men, and women, the LP candidate charged the people with recovering their mandate.


“Let us join the movement to take back Imo from inept administrators that had run the state aground, by returning home en masse to vote in the Nov. 11 election.”

Achonu promised, among other things, to address insecurity, enhance the energy power sector, prioritize human capital, establish local government autonomy, remodel the healthcare system, and revitalize the agriculture sector.

He said: “The primary function of the government is to protect lives and property of the people, unfortunately, this is non-existent in Imo State.

“Imo state has become the most insecure place on the face of the planet now, comparable only to Somalia and Afghanistan.

“My administration will adopt a diplomatic approach in tackling insecurity.

“We are going to have a one- on-one dialogue to address concerns of aggrieved parties in order to achieve a peaceful resolution to the problem of insecurity and other agitations in Imo.


“I will inaugurate full autonomy of all the local governments and create vigilante groups by legislation to empower the local governments, in tandem with the police and the DSS.

“I will also conduct a free and fair local government election within six months of my election.”

As a result, if elected governor, he promised to usher in a new era and rewrite the narrative of Imo.

On the economy, Achonu stated that his administration would use the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals to bring all-round development to Imo.

The LP gubernatorial candidate also stated that he would declare a state of emergency in the electricity sector so that Imo would have consistent power supply within one to two years of his government.


He also stated that Imo Airport would be transformed into an African cargo center.

Achonu recommended Imo indigenes and all Igbos in general, both at home and abroad, to domicile their investments in the South East to support growth.

According to him, the sensitisation initiative, which he tagged “Aku Ruo Ulo” (meaning “bring your wealth back home”), is built on seven key focal sectors.

“This includes Security, Infrastructure, Education, Agriculture/Tourism, Manufacturing, Employment and Excellence in Leadership.

“I also pledge to implement judicial reforms, facilitate women and youths active participation in governance.

“I will improve access to financial empowerment for Small and medium-sized enterprises, especially for the People With Disabilities, improve the economy and bring foreign investments to Imo, if elected as governor, ” he said.

“I, therefore, charge you to avail yourselves of the opportunity presented by the forthcoming election to turn around the fortunes of the state and restore its glory,” Achonu said.
