Five reasons why Ihedioha should be Imo State Governor in 2019- James Nwogu
My name is James Des Nwogu, a true indigene of Imo State from Amumara Ezinihitte Mbaise, Imo State.
Before I continue, I want to categorically state that I am not under the payroll of any politician or political party anywhere, my write-up here is based on my observations, yes, my observation on the political development in the State.
I write this without sentiment or biased mind, but to air my view on a critical issue that affects all of us and that is ‘Governance’.
Imo as a State has all it takes to lead in terms of development and industrialisation not just in Nigeria, or Africa but in the world as a whole. It is no news that Imo State is among the top oil-producing States in the country, we are also blessed with other mineral resources like limestone, clay, lead etc.
when it comes to education, Imo State leads, other states follow, it was reported that Imo State has the highest number of professors in Nigeria. In spite of all this, it seems Imo State has not been able to harness her full potential, and we ask, what is really happening to our dear State? The answer is simple, ‘poor leadership’.
Poor leadership is the reason why so many educated youths in Imo State are roaming about in the streets of Owerri Jobless and helpless but not hopeless cause help is coming soon.
As a concerned citizen who has taken pains to study the happenings in Imo State over the years, I have come to the conclusion that Imo State needs a true leader, a man with the heart of Gold, a man whose conscience is still alive, a man who believes in justice and equity to govern her.
I have studied all the politicians vying for the office of the Governor in the State, and have found one who is unique among them. His name is Chief Emeka Ihedioha [omenkeahuruanya]
One thing that attracted my attention on him is his watchword ‘my word my bond’. Now that’s exactly what Imolites need, a man whose word is his bond. Here I am going to show you five good reasons while Ndi Imo should elect this honourable man come the year 2019.
For The Sake of Justice and Equity:
Justice and Equity should not be sacrificed on the alter political selfishness. Imo State is made up of three zones, which are Orlu Zone, Okigwe Zone, and Owerri Zone. There is this agreement that the Governorship seat of the state should rotate among the three zones. As it stands now, Orlu and Okigwe Zones have heard their own share of the sit respectively. Now every dick and harry in Nigeria knows that 2019 is the turn of Owerri Zone, equity demands that the Owerri Zone should be allowed to present a quality candidate who will lead this dear State. As it stands now by my findings, Emeka Ihedioha is the most qualified candidate from Owerri Zone. Every well-meaning Imolites should join hands to make this mission a success. Everybody with his or her conscience still alive should vote a candidate from Owerri Zone and one among such candidates is Chief Emeka Ihedioha.
For Quality Projects:
Chief Emeka Ihedioha is a man of his word, he has promised to deliver quality projects in the State if he’s elected Governor. He is a man who believes in quality and good standard. We could recall that a few days ago, some national dailies reported that the incumbent Governor of the State, Governor Rochas Okorocha had alleged that acidic rain is washing off the roads constructed by his administration. The current administration under APC is known for substandard projects that do not stand the test of time. Imolites should note that while roads constructed by the current administration a few months ago are being washed off by the purported acidic rain, the roads constructed by Chief Ihedioha about five years ago are still in good condition, that’s quality. Imo State needs quality roads and Ihedioha is the quality giver, these are facts you can verify.
Tested and Trusted:
Hon. Emeka Ihedioha has been tested and Trusted as long as Nigerian Politics is concerned, he was once the Deputy Speaker of the house of representative, he served Nigeria with his good heart, he was not biased, he is not desperate, unlike some other politicians. He had the opportunity to overthrow the then speaker; Hon Tambuwal with federal might, but no, he won’t do it cause he is a man of integrity. His words are really his bond.
He is a Youth:
Nigeria needs fresh blood like Emeka in the helm of affairs of leadership. While I respect our ancestors, I also suggest that we allow the youth to lead also. Fresh minds are highly needed in Imo State and Emeka is the man. Dear Imolites lets not play politics with the future of our youths, let us vote Emeka a man who is exposed, educated matured, young and active, let’s vote for a man of integrity…… Emeka is that man.
No Trace of Corruption:
Chief Emeka Ihedioha was in the green chamber for almost 12 years and till date, no case of corruption has been traced to him, even his political enemies are helpless as they don’t have anything against him that can enable them to nail him. He is just pure, he is hardworking and committed to his cause, he is so transparent and accountable……. No one I mean no one has ever come out to place any case of corruption against him, he is a living legend when it comes to probity.
In conclusion, I stand boldly to say that Chief Emeka Ihedioha is the man Imolites are waiting for, he is the man that will be used by GOD to deliver Imolites from the jaw of the selfish oppressors, he is the right choice IMO State missed in the year 2015. Let’s correct the mistake of yesterday now…
His word His bond.
