A chieftain of All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) in Imo state, Mr. Frank Nneji, has vowed that he is poised to salvaging the state from what he called prolonged bad leadership.
Addressing newsmen after obtaining his nomination and expression of interest form at the party’s National Secretariat in Abuja yesterday, he stated that his Rebuild Imo Program is the only veritable platform for the people of Imo state to choose to remain where they are, walk a similar route or rethink the future of the state. He assured the people that if elected, he would pay attention to the economy of the state.
“My focus is on the economy of the state. For many years no government has been able to focus on the economy of Imo. We have quite a lot of unemployed people in the state. Of course Imo state is one of the states with high literacy level, having many people coming out from school every year. You need to cater for this people. We have a beautiful central location that could make Imo state the commercial hub to South South and South East region but no government in the past has been able to take advantage of that. This is what my government would focus on in 2019” he said.
The governorship hopeful expressed confidence with the support base he has garnered within Imo state and beyond, describing it as in indication of the people’s quest for a redefined governance in the state. He expressed optimism that despite the number of people in the race for Imo governorship in APGA platform, he would emerge the flag bearer if the party at the general election.
Mr. Nneji promised to plug all the loopholes that bring about what he called waste in governance and manage the resources of the state prudently. He expressed commitment to remain in APGA at all odds, expressing optimism he would emerge the governor of the state come 2019.
He dispelled rumours that the party has adopted president Muhammadu Buhari as its sole presidential candidate in 2019, saying the party will announce its presidential candidate in coming days.
He called on the people Imo to support his governorship ambition, adding that it is the only potent platform for the party to actualise its full potentials.
