He declared, “It’s time to rebuild Imo and restore its lost glory, marred by issues such as insecurity, inadequate public infrastructure, high unemployment, a struggling healthcare system, and the neglect of the well-being of workers and pensioners.”
“I speak to your consciences. Let’s all come together and make this project a reality. Vote and protect your vote; stand there and make sure your vote is counted. There will be no voter intimidation.”
He added, “I have presented myself and taken the bold step, and we are well-positioned to move Imo to the promised land. Yes, there’s hunger in the land, but change your mindset and don’t accept money to vote for people who will still keep you in bondage. Let’s make things right.”
Encouraging his party’s loyal supporters and residents of Imo State to turn out in large numbers to cast their votes for APGA on Saturday, November 11, Ejiogu emphasized the importance of maintaining peace and ensuring the validity of their votes.
The event saw the participation of various individuals, such as the state chairman of APGA, the deputy governorship candidate, the Director-General of the Tony Ejiogu Campaign, ward chairmen, women, youth leaders, senior statesmen, and numerous other key stakeholders.
