Nov. 11 guber poll: Soludo plots Uzodimma’s fall in Imo

Ahead of the November 11 governorship election in Imo State, the governor of Anambra State, Professor Chukwuma Soludo is plotting to ensure his counterpart in Imo State, Governor Hope Uzodimma does not get reelected in the election. 

Soludo, who is the National Leader of the All Progressives Grand Alliance(APGA) insisted that the party would defeat Uzodimma at the poll going by the caliber of candidate it is fielding in the election.

Speaking while playing host to the party’s governorship candidate, Sir Tony Ejiogu at Anambra Government House in Awka recently, the Anambra governor, gave reasons for tipping Ejiogu to win the upcoming governorship election in Imo State, 

According to Soludo, one of the reasons he believes Ejiogu is the right man for Imo at the moment is because of the quality of his manifesto.

He said, “Mr. Ejiogu’s manifesto speaks volumes about a man who is poised to bring about democratic dividends.”

While maintaining that in the past, political parties in the country were identified by their manifesto and unique people-oriented programs, he extolled Ejiogu for taking the bull by the horn by proffering solutions that will address the socioeconomic woes of Imo State through his manifesto, which will improve the standard of living of Imo people when actualized.

Referring to Ejiogu’s manifesto, where he promised to be a servant leader, Prof. Soludo said APGA has shown and demonstrated its commitment to the development and progress of Imo State by presenting a very credible and competent candidate in the person of Sir Tony Ejiogu.

“Only candidates with credibility and the interest of the people will work for them as servant leaders,” he said.

The Anambra State governor also said he believes Ejiogu to be the best fit to lead Imo in this tough moment because “for the desired change we need, we want a credible candidate that understands what APGA as a progressive party stands for. Going forward, I believe a new wave has started through Imo APGA”. 

Soludo told Ejiogu during the visit, “For you to be the flagbearer of our party, that means that you have empathy, passion, and genuine interest in improving the lives of the people,” while maintaining that APGA is the only party that practices true federalism with the framework and structure to move the states and the nation forward.

Soludo said he believes that APGA will be victorious at the polls because Ejiogu is already the people’s choice. He also expressed his optimism that Ejiogu, through APGA, will reclaim Imo.

He stated, “I am very optimistic of our victory at the polls, though it is not easy challenging an incumbent”, He added that the herculean task is an achievable one, as Ejiogu’s is the people’s choice of a better Imo.”

According to Soludo, Ejiogu is best prepared for the task of rebuilding Imo because of the party’s ideologies.

He said, “The All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) is the only party in the country that has empathy and passion and shows genuine interest in improving the lives of the citizens, hence the reason we will want to win Imo.”

He added: “Parties in the past were rooted in ideologies that brought about developmental strides, but in recent times, political parties have become only an avenue to win an election. But with the APGA, we are truly committed to the proper utilization of taxpayers’ money, and there is no better man to trust than our candidate, Sir Tony Ejiogu.”
