Hon. Chuka Eregbu has described the ambition of Hon. Paschal Ejiogu, 2019 governorship aspirant under the Action Democratic Party (ADP) as the most fortunate thing that will happen to the state.
Speaking to Daily Nigerian Horn in Owerri on Monday, the Isiala Mbano born business mogul and vibrant politician opined that if Imolites will give their mandate to Ejiogu to govern the state come 2019, what he described as the woes in the state will be things of the past.
According to him, Ejiogu do not only has the full support of the well-meaning Imolites within and outside the country but also he has the most suitable credentials, vision and passion to turn around the state for good if elected.
He also predicted that ADP is one party to beat in the forthcoming election in the state stressing that the party has marshal plans on how to remedy that state which he said has been destroyed by the present All Progressive Congress led government in the state.
Eregbu finally called on Imolites not to place much emphasis on the party a candidate is coming from but on the individual that has the credibility and genuine intention to govern the state adding that where the Peoples Democratic Party and APC have failed, ADP is next to be giving a chance.
For now, with what is happening in the country, we are not looking at the vision of any individual that is coming out to contest because Nigeria needs people with good vision and I can tell you vividly that Paschal Ejiogu is one of them.
So down here in Imo State, we are lucky to have him and his intention to run for 2019 Imo guber is one good thing that every Imolite should embrace with both hands because he means well. And by the grace of God with him in ADP, the future is very bright for us all.
Asked why he is supporting an Orlu man to take over from Okorocha in 2019 despite the issue of equity or zoning in the state, Eregbu said, for me, we are not talking about where a person comes from, Orlu, Owerri or Okigwe. The major thing is can he deliver, that is what we are looking at. We all grew up irrespective of our different zones, bringing up the right choice, the right candidate is what matters and we believe that Hon. Paschal Ejiogu is the right choice to make things happen.
