Abia State Governor, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu has called on Abians and residents to support the councillorship and chairmanship candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party (Party) for the forthcoming local government election in the state slated for December 18 in order to ensure total victory for the party’s flagbearers.
Abia Governor made the appeal in Umuahia during the Abia PDP rally and flag-off of the campaign for all the Seventeen local Government areas and 393 wards in the state.
He declared that the “laudable achievements” of his administration are there for everybody to see which is the reason why they should vote for PDP en masse.
He called on Abians and residents to vote for PDP in the elections, noting that the party’s candidates should not take anything for granted, but work harder to endear themselves to the people.
His deputy, Hon Ude Chukwu, said that as a party, the PDP was expected to move around all the nooks and crannies to campaign in order to ensure its candidates were elected.
He said: “Abia is PDP and PDP in Abia. As a government in power in the state, we are not looking for what to tell our people.
“As you go out to campaign in your wards and local government areas, you will be able to see those things we have been able to achieve in the last five years.
“I want to assure us that we are going to get 100 percent in the councillorship and chairmanship elections.”
On his part, the Abia PDP Chairman, Mr. Alwell Asiforo, appealed to those who failed to get the party’s tickets not to be discouraged, but rather, join hands for its victory.
The former Abia Speaker lauded Ikpeazu for his visionary leadership and developmental strides, saying it had made others align with the party.
In their speeches, the party leaders from the three senatorial zones assured the governor that PDP would sweep the polls in their respective zones.
The highlight of the event was the presentation of the party flag to all the 17 LGA chairmanship candidates and their running mates.
