“Obazu Town Union is a community that is peaceful, law abiding and supports His Excellency, Distinguished Senator Hope Uzodimma’s second term bid. These people are trying to impose a President General who has become very unpopular and whose tenure has ended since December 26th, 2021 by the constitutions of Obazu autonomous community and in line with the Imo State autonomous community and allied matter Gazette of 2020.”
