Imo PDP Inaugurates Campaign Council for Governorship Election with Boost from APC Stalwarts
Imo chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has inaugurated its campaign council for the Nov. 11 governorship election with an endorsement from two APC stalwarts, Rochas Okorocha and Senator Ifeanyi Araraume. The PDP candidate, Senator Samuel Anyanwu, expressed his determination to address issues such as killings, insecurity, the state's health system, and restore the dignity of the workforce and pensioners. The article highlights the significance of the endorsement, the vision of the PDP candidate, and the need for support from Imo people.

Owerri, Imo State - The Imo chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has taken a significant step towards the forthcoming governorship election by inaugurating its campaign council. The council received a boost of support from two notable All Progressives Congress (APC) stalwarts, Rochas Okorocha and Senator Ifeanyi Araraume, who endorsed the PDP candidate, Senator Samuel Anyanwu, during the launch event held in Owerri.

The endorsement holds political significance as both Okorocha and Araraume showed their preference for Anyanwu by using platforms they respectively lead – Okorocha's Rescue Mission Group and Araraume's Destiny Organisation. This move further solidifies the PDP's position in the race against the incumbent governor and APC candidate, Hope Uzodimma.

The campaign council, officially inaugurated by the party's Chairman, Mr Charles Ugwu, carries the responsibility of strategizing and executing the party's campaign efforts in order to secure victory in the election. The council will be under the leadership of Ikenga Ugochinyere, a member of the Federal House of Representatives, who assumes the role of Director-General, while Prince Marshal Okoroaforanyanwu will be the Secretary.

In his address at the event, Senator Samuel Anyanwu articulated his vision for Imo State, reiterating his commitment to addressing pressing issues such as killings and insecurity that have plagued the state. Additionally, he emphasized his desire to revamp the state's health system, restore the dignity of the workforce and pensioners, and rejuvenate tourism and local government functioning.

Despite the challenges ahead, Anyanwu urged the council members to remain fearless and resolute in carrying out their lawful duties. He stressed the importance of not succumbing to intimidation by any individual or group, emphasizing his leadership qualities by stating, "I will lead, and I fear nobody. I want to stop the bloodletting and suffering in the land. Do not be afraid, I know where I'm coming from. I am your messenger, and I will lead you right. My name is Samuel, God has spoken, and I have heard."

Prince Marshal Okoroaforanyanwu, the secretary of the campaign council, highlighted the principle of equity as a driving factor in the PDP's choice of Senator Anyanwu. He noted that the Imo East senatorial district, which Anyanwu represents, has only ruled the state for a mere seven months since the return of democratic rule in 1999. Okoroaforanyanwu, who has previously held positions in the All Progressive Grand Alliance and the Social Democratic Party, called on the people of Imo State to rally behind Anyanwu's candidacy and play a part in restoring the lost glory of the state.

With the endorsement from APC stalwarts and the inauguration of its campaign council, the Imo PDP has set out on an ambitious journey towards the governorship election. Senator Samuel Anyanwu's vision for the state, focusing on critical areas such as security, healthcare, and governance, is poised to resonate with the people. The coming months will test the strength of the PDP's campaign and the support it receives from the electorate. As the political landscape in Imo State evolves, the choice made on November 11 will determine the direction and future of the state.
