Sen Godwin Ifeanyi Araraume has declared that Okigwe zone cannot be used for ‘testing the microphone ‘ since the zone has eminently qualified son that will shore up the integrity of the state and zone.
He re-emphasised his desire to work with Imo State Governor,Sen Hope Uzodinma to reposition the All Progressives Congress in the State and the South East. In his words,I am working to see that Amaraku-Obolo road was re-ashaphalted ,adding that majority of the roads in the zone require urgent attention.
“There’s no way Okigwe will be looking for something from my friend and brother Gov Hope Uzodinma and I go to tell him and he will refuse me. He knows me very well and I know his pedigree. We will work together for Imo and Okigwe zone. Every vote for me is also for the governor and the party because I will do everything for the party to excel.
Sen Araraume who said this at Isiala Mbano Local Government Area in continuation of his campaign for the December 5 Senate bye- election maintained that his candidature was a blessing for the zone, Imo and South East, adding that Okigwe had done so much and is still doing for the good of Imo.
The Director General of the campaign organization and former Commissioner for Works, Housing and Transport, Chief Peter Orji said his principal and the APC remained the ones to beat. According to him, since Sen Araraume emerged as the candidate, all other party and candidates have suddenly lost the will and may soon collapse into the campaign organization.
He insisted that the emergence of Sen. Araraume was generally canvassed by every Okigwe son and daughter, noting that this informed the reason why the zone remained calm and prayerful throughout the trying period of the Court cases.
Speaking a former House of Assembly lawmaker for Isiala Mbano State Constituency, Hon Simeon Iwunze assured Araraume that whenever he wants to visit the governor to let him know that Okigwe zone is in synergy with him, they are ready.
Hon.Iwunze popularly known as ‘Whiteman’ said Okigwe zone was solidly behind Sen Araraume not just because he is the most qualified, but also because he has made Okigwe zone very proud in all his endeavours.
He averred that Sen. Araraume has massive support across board.
The former Council Chairman of Isiala Mbano Local Government Area disclosed that this is a precarious time for Okigwe zone because of the circumstances leading to the bye-election, hence the importance of getting it right with this election. The Campaign continued Thursday at Okigwe Local Government Area, after successfully receiving unrivalled assurances from Onuimo and Ihite- Uboma Local Government Areas.
