Imo has become a shadow of its past – Vice Chairman, Okeke


The National Vice Chairman of the Labour Party in the South East, Innocent Sunday Okeke, on Thursday, described Imo State under the APC-led administration as becoming a shadow of its past.

He warned residents that if they do not wish to keep romancing insecurity the Labour Party is the way to go.

Okeke who now superintends over the affairs of the Labour Party in Imo State made the remarks while addressing journalists in Owerri, Imo State capital.

He regretted that Imo has become a shadow of its past, warning that if the people of the state want an end to the intimidation and harassment of citizens by state actors, LP is the party to vote on Saturday

He said, ” To our people in Imo State, nobody can forget the impassioned solidarity and firm loyalty you have at all times shown the Labour Party, as was reflected in the massive voting of our Presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Obi, in the February 25 Presidential election.

“In Imo, however, we are not unaware of the enormous challenges and obstacles contrived to subvert the will of Imo people in the last election, but you defied the odds, stood firm, and still hauled in a massive number of votes for our candidates, across the board.

“They went to great lengths to steal the vote of Imo people, but you surmounted their evil plots and delivered our candidates.

“We are also privy to the fact that the Police Armoured Personnel Carrier (APC) was deployed to other purposes outside election security and was used in some places to undermine the choice of the people, yet Ndi-Imo stood strong!

“It was so bad that results were manufactured for the ruling party in areas where no election was held and the compliant and complicit INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner for Imo state, accepted same, as valid results, all in a desperate bid to undercut the landslide victory of our great party in Imo state.

“If Imo people desire a government that is open and accountable, where you will be free to participate in a transparent government and contribute freely in the decision-making process, on issues that concern you as a citizen, the journey to a new Imo begins this Saturday. Vote LP

“I say this without fear of equivocation that LP represents the political watershed that Imo is so desperately in need of at a time like this.”

“We have a Presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Obi who has become the centrepiece of the 2023 general elections. His brand of politics has distinguished him”

He said without a doubt, every honest Nigerian will attest to the fact that the Labour Party (LP) has become a political party of choice among Nigerians and of course, the party to beat, across the country, in the forthcoming election.

“Our party represents the full embodiment of the aspirations of everyday Nigerians. This reality has transformed the Labour Party into the most formidable election-winning political platform in Nigeria.

“To this end, we cannot thank Nigerians and the Ndi-South East zone enough for their love, faith, and support for our party and candidates in the last election.”
