An Imo state governorship aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Mr Okechukwu Ezeh, has said that his passion to serve Imo people in 2015 was the catalyst that gingered him into joining the bandwagon of governorship aspirants in the state.
He said his life had been that of service to people, therefore, it would be worthwhile to extend the service passion to the state level.
Ezeh, who had trained and given over 500 Imo youths jobs in different capacities, regretted that the position of the state was that of a shattered promise and made it clear that it was time for Imo youths to be given real jobs and not the kind given to them in hotels.
He said: “We have gone beyond hotel conundrum. Industrialization does not mean hotels scattered all over the place. There will be paradigm shift. We are going to empower the youths by creating jobs.”
He promised to join forces with other personalities in APGA to rebuild it the way it ought to be and urged party members not to allow people without verifiable pedigree to run the party aground. He later donated
a 40KVA generator to Imo APGA and promised to make the State Secretariat a befitting place for members and provide materials with which the 27 LG party chairmen would work with.
In his remarks, the Imo APGA chairman, Barr. Chudi Onuzo, confessed that when Ezeh told him about his governorship ambition, he advised him to go for Imo state House of Assembly seat, not knowing that he was a governorship material.
