On Sunday, in front of the Justice, Development, Peace and Caritas Commission, the Catholic Archdiocese of Owerri, the National Voter’s Drive Coalition, and the Imo Advocacy Group, five candidates for governor from diverse political parties in Imo State signed a peace agreement.
They promised to make sure there would be no violence during the Imo governorship election on November 11, 2023.
Candidates from five political parties, including Senator Athan Achonu of the Labour Party, Senator Samuel Anyanwu of the Peoples Democratic Party, Chief Okere John Jude of the Accord Party, Maj. Gen. Lincoln Ogunewe (ret.) of the Action Alliance, and Sir Anthony Ejiogu of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, are listed on Anaedoonline.ng.
The current governor, Hope Uzodinma of the All Progressives Alliance, did not attend the signing event.
The peace agreement was signed at the Assumpta Cathedral in Owerri, the capital of Imo State, with the intention of giving all of the gubernatorial candidates a stage on which to present their platforms, hopes, and aspirations to the millions of Imolites who are eager to hear from them.
