Imo state All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) governorship candidate, Sir Tony Ejiogu has reiterated his determination to create wealth for the teaming unemployed youths in the state.
Ejiogu dropped the cheering news to the youths of Ohaji Egbema recently when he visited the area. He regretted that despite their huge economic contributions to the growth and development of the state, the community still lacks basic essential things of life.
“How can Ohaji Egbema that housed most of the oil walls and companies in the state still lack basic essential things of life?” he questioned.
Based on his wealth of experience as an administrator and entrepreneur, Ejiogu argued that the huge revenue from Ohaji Egbema is big enough to sustain and make Imo to forget about the usual monthly federal government allocation.
He explained that if a credible person with character and integrity is elected governor for the state, then the state would witness the much desired change to the delight of the masses.
Ejiogu, who noted that he didn’t visit Ohaji Egbema for campaign, stressed that his visit was to educate them on the huge economic contributions they have been making to the state which they have not been benefiting from.
The APGA governorship candidate further noted that all the intervention agencies of the government meant to develop their area like NDDC and ISOPADEC are not doing much because of the bad leadership in the state.
“Your son is the Managing Director of ISOPADEC, but he can’t do anything because he is not in full control of the allocation due to the agency,” he said.
He then gave the assurance that if elected as governor that all the agencies meant to develop their area, including the local government, will be given a free hand to operate without any interference unlike what obtains presently.
The Emekuku-born administrator who pledged to liberate Ohaji Egbema and the entire Imo State from the hands of bad leaders, maintained that only a focused administrator with proven integrity like himself can liberate Imo people.
He noted that other neighbouring states like Abia, Enugu, Anambra and Ebonyi States have liberated themselves and charged Imo electorate to join in the new wave of change to liberate themselves at the governorship election this Saturday by casting their votes to him.
While insisting that he remains the best among others, Ejiogu enjoined the people of Ohaji Egbema to give him full support that will usher him to victory at the polls.
