Ahead of the November elections in Imo State, the gubernatorial candidate of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP), Mr. Ben Odunzeh has vowed to tackle insecurity and uphold the rule of law if Imolites give him their mandates.
Odunzeh emphasized his willingness to ensure the implementation of a transparent and accountable electoral system throughout the entire election process.
He made this known through a statement signed by his media officer, Mr Joshua Elekwachi, shortly after a meeting with stakeholders and youth organizations in the State.
According to him: ‘In recent times, Imo State has faced its share of electoral challenges, leading to concerns over the integrity of the electoral process. Our focus remains steadfast on the welfare of the people and the protection of their democratic rights.’
Odunzeh vowed to resist voter intimidation, ballot box stuffing and other electoral malpractices.
He declared his readiness to run a political process that is devoid of mudslinging but policy-based.
The Eastern Updates had last week reported that the National Leader and Presidential candidate of the NNPP, in the last elections, Rabiu Kwankwaso, came out to boast that his party would win the Imo State governorship election.
Kwankwaso made this on Monday when the governorship candidate of NNPP, Uche Ben Odunzeh and his deputy, Godstime Chukwubikem Samuel, briefed him on the progress made so far in their quest to win the contest, in Abuja.
Kwankwaso had come 4th in the Presidential election which had President Bola Tinubu declared as the eventual winner by the electoral umpire.
