Nevertheless, the top echelon of the party national leadership , statement executives , LGA and Ward officers were fully in attendance as MAJA party which is currently dominating the cyber space is also changing the  narratives of Imo political landscape : A political party being rated as the N0.3 most active political party with no crisis -ridden according to a report credited to INEC.
Party faithful and supporters have expressed optimism about the political future of MAJA in IMO State. We see a light at the end of the tunnel, Abba 1 of Abba , chairman of the Elders’ Forum and a Chieftain of the Party in the state from Abba Ward in Nwangele LGA , expressed.
Meanwhile, 2019 general elections in Nigeria shall be a litmus test to the founders and promoters of this emerging corrupt and controversial -free political party that is fast becoming a house name in IMO State.
