Labour Party Will Win Imo Governorship Poll – Peter Obi

The presidential candidate of the Labour Party for the February 25 presidential election, Peter Obi, has said that his party would win the November 11 governorship election in Imo State.

Speaking in Owerri, the state capital, on Tuesday at the flag-off of the campaigns for the party in the state, Obi said that LP is known for performance and excellence.

Using Abia State, which his party controls, as an example of good governance, Obi said that the people of Abia State now have hope and are witnessing good governance because a “first-class brain” who knows what he is doing is now the governor of the state.

Obi said, “Abure is the national chairman of our party. We don’t have another chairman. LP will win Imo State. Athan Achonu is the only candidate of the party, and he is the best in Imo State. I am happy nobody has changed the process. I believe in the process.

“We want Nigeria to have leaders who will do what they preach. We know what it takes to change Nigeria. That is why we are here. We know what it takes to change Imo State. In Abia today, there is hope; that is what is called governance. This is because a first-class brain who knows what he is doing is the governor there.

“I believe in the process. Achonu emerged through the right process. Vote for LP, and things will start happening.”

The governor of Abia State, Alex Otti, said that he was the chairman of the panel that conducted the primary election that produced Achonu as the governorship candidate of the LP in the state.

“Distinguished Senator Athan Achonu is the only governorship candidate of the party. I was the chairman of the panel that conducted the primary election, which produced him as the winner of the election. I am here to bear testimony that he is our candidate for the November 11 governorship election in Imo State.’’

“We have not even started in Abia, but the noise is everywhere. We are less than 100 days in office in Abia. The Labour Party is known for its governance. Vote for the Labour Party,” Otti said.

The national chairman of the party, Abure, said that he was confident that the LP would form the next government in the state.

Abure said that the Peoples Democratic Party and the All Progressives Congress had failed Nigerians and the people of the state in particular.

Speaking after the party’s flag was handed over to him, Achonu said that on his assumption of office as the next governor of the state, he would conduct a local government area election, fix the roads and the electricity, end insecurity, and ensure that civil servants and pensioners are promptly paid.

He said that he would make history by becoming the first physically challenged person to emerge as governor.

Achonu added that “The Labour Party will rescue Nigeria. We will win Imo, Enugu, Kogi, and Bayelsa states.”

The high point of the event was the handover of the flag of the party to the governorship candidate of the party and the flagging off of the campaigns in the state by the national chairman of the party.
