Emeka Ihedioha, the ousted governor of Imo State, was noticeably absent from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) flag-off of the Imo governorship campaign for the November 11 governorship election in the state.
The governors of Enugu, Edo, and Zamfara states, as well as PDP members from the state’s 27 Local Government Areas, attended the flag-off ceremony on Wednesday at the Kanu Nwankwo stadium in Owerri.
Senator Samuel Anyanwu, the party’s gubernatorial candidate, was also supported by the party’s National Chairman, Umar Damagum, and certain members of the National Working Committee (NWC).
Dauda Lawal, Governor of Zamfara State and Chairman of the PDP Campaign Council for the Imo election, asked voters to vote out Governor Hope Uzodimma and elect Anyanwu.
Lawal claimed that the PDP governorship candidate have better capacity and experience in restoring decent government to Imo State.
The acting national Chairman of the PDP, while presenting the party’s flag to its governorship candidate in the state, stated that his party conveyed the message of positive change to the people of the state.
Damagum stated that the party’s nominee have the political expertise, energy, and exposure to turn things around for the state’s people.
In his remarks, Anyanwu said, “Imo State is a PDP state. I thank you for resisting them. They did everything to frustrate this flag but you resisted them. Imo State is a PDP state.
“Under the PDP’s previous administrations, the local government areas were functional, and civil servants and pensioners were happy.
“Under my watch, we will make our civil servants and pensioners happy and the local government areas fully functional.
“Our state will be saved, secured and investors fully interested in coming to our state to invest. Just come out early on November 11 at your polling units and vote PDP.
“We determined to make Imo great again. Don’t allow them to intimidate you. This election must be free and fair.”
