Deputy Gubernatorial candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party-PDP in Imo State, Rt. Hon. Gerald Irona has assured people of the State of good governance when voted into power in 2019.
Irona, who gave the assurance weekend, while inaugurating the Imo Restoration Vanguard and Ihedioha Campaign Committee in Eziorsu, Oguta Local Government Area of the State, reiterated the commitment of the PDP team to bringing the dividends of democracy to the door steps of the people.
According to him, “Rt. Hon. Emeka Ihedioha is committed to good governance and bringing the dividends of democracy to your door steps. We must come together to end the era of poor governance in Imo. Go and tell Imo people the good news that the PDP is ready to right the wrongs in the state by returning power to the people. It is time to end poverty and create wealth in Imo. The era of deceit is over. It is time to ensure that your rights as the economic base of the state are protected and all that you have been denied over the years restored.”
He charged people of the area to resist the temptation of selling their votes for peanuts in order to secure the future of the state.
In their respective speeches, some leaders of the area- Messrs. Charles Mazi, Clinton Ifejirika and Kingsley Ngwuruakor Adigwe were unanimous in pouring encomiums on Hon. Irona, describing him as a dependable leader.
They pledged their support to the Ihedioha/Irona joint PDP ticket, describing it as the best option for Imo state in 2019.
The community leaders urged people of the area to give massive support to the PDP in 2019 in order to deliver the state from what they described as “mismanagement of resources and poor governance.”
The highlights of the occasion were speeches, cultural dances and defection of persons from other political parties to the PDP, among others.
No fewer than five thousand persons from Eziorsu town and other parts of Oru Ward were present at the event.
