Chime Nzeribe who is the Director General of the campaign Organisation of the Labour Party governorship candidate, boasted that its candidate, Athan Achonu will achieve victory in the coming election.
Nzeribe while speaking at a press conference in Owerri, during the kick-off of the 2023 governorship campaigns in the state noted that Athan was determined to win the election, adding that the party would capitalise on its overwhelming support by the masses to win the election.
He, therefore, called on the state governor and his aides to allow the campaigns to be determined by issues affecting the people of the state and its economic well-being.
Meanwhile, Nzeribe urged the state governor, Hope Uzodimma, to give room for a violence-free campaign adding that the party was ready to play by the rules provided by the Independent National Electoral Commission.
His words: ‘We in the Labour Party and Senator Athan Achonu’s campaign Organisation expect a violence-free, issue-based campaign. Our message which has been consistently pro-people will be transmitted to all nooks and crannies of the state.’
In keeping with our belief and our faith and trust in God Almighty, we will start our campaigns with prayer sessions in the various churches across Imo State.
‘These prayer sessions would not only be for smooth and violence-free campaigns and elections but for the repose of the souls of the victims of violence in our dear state including civilians and security agents.
‘We will also include in our prayer sessions the Labour Party presidential candidate petition at the election petition tribunal, for God to in His infinite mercies direct our judges to uphold justice and do what is right before our laws and God’.
He however solicited support from the Imolities for Senator Athan Achonu and the Labour Party, and promised relief to end insecurity, fraudulent elections, and the creeping economic meltdown and the decay of the basic infrastructure in the state.
