The Imo State governorship candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Senator Ifeanyi Araraume has saluted the youths from the state — for their on-going efforts and commitment to help recover and rebuild the state, in line with the aspiration of ‘’the long-suffering Imo people, who have been surcharged by the present state government’’, in the past eight years. He said his steadfastness to serve as the rally-point for the hope of the people, on the platform of APGA, is predicated on selfless service and not personal interests, promising not to disappoint the state, if elected as the governor in the coming general election. In a statement by the Media Unit of Senator Ifeanyi Araraume Campaign Organisation, yesterday, the governorship hopeful advised everybody to come on board as the government is big enough to accommodate every interest.
Senator Araraume commended the youths and the entire people of Imo State for the show of love, when he visited Owerri recently, saying he is further refreshed that the narrow but right path, to recover and rebuild the state, is worth embarking on. The statement added, ‘’Senator Ifeanyi Araraume left Abuja on Friday morning, October 19, via Air Peace for Owerri town. Ordinary, it would have taken him 30 minutes from the Sam Mbakwue International Airport to his Guest House, along Douglas Road, Owerri. But that was not to be; as thousands of his joyous supporters and party’s members, were at hand to receive him at the airport.‘’Drumming, singing and stamping their feet, as they dance, the people, especially the youths forced Araraume to ride with them — from the airport to the APGA state secretariat, Owerri.
And a journey of less than 30 minutes took Araraume four hours, 45minutes. We appreciated the huge support. ‘’And, apart from thousands of supporters, who came to the airport to welcome him to Owerri, he was at every junction blocked by his followers — with loud greeting. In some instances, it took the intervention of the armed security men attached to him, to free him from the warmed hands of his supporters by appealing to them.
‘’The ecstasy of welcoming Araraume to Owerri town got to its peak, when he received thundering ovation from another huge crowd at the state party’s secretariat; by this, our governor-to-be is encouraged by the task ahead.’’ Araraume reiterated his earlier plead not to disappoint the people, promising that APGA will take over the Imo State Government House on May 29, 2019, by the grace of God. He also thanked Imo State Chairman of the party, all the members of the State Working Committee, the 27 LGA Chairmen, Zonal, youth and women leaders and members of APGA, more especially all the delegates, statutory and ad-hoc for their support, assuring to carry everybody along in the journey.
While acknowledging all those who aspired in different positions in the state: the House of Assembly, House of Representatives, Senate and governorship, those who emerged as candidates of the party across board and the National chairman of the party, Ozonkpu Dr Victor Ike Oye, Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State and the entire National Working Committee’s members for the role they played for his emergency as candidate, assured that ‘’APGA will remain and lead not just Imo, Anambra but entire South East states. ‘’Our women and youths be ready, APGA will rule this state. For those who have misruled the state, God has put confusion in their camp. Everybody will play positive role to make sure that Imo is developed. We are going to work together. ‘’All of us are going to join hands to make such that this party and state is developed and be greater. APGA has shown example of development in Nigeria. We lead, others follow. In Imo, we have a total collapse of the system. No hospital, no road, no electricity, no water. By May 29, 2019, there will be change of government in Imo State. APC will be voted out and APGA will take over in Owerri.’’ The two-time senator and businessman said those who emerged in APGA are the best, saluting APGA candidates and aspirants for their sacrifice, and called for synergy in order to win the 2019 general election for the party.
