Stanley Ekezie, a chieftain of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Imo State has accused Gov Hope Uzodinma’s administration of leaving the people of the state with broken hopes and failed expectations across all sectors.
The party chieftain said Imo people cannot wait to sack the All Progressives Congress (APC) at the polls regretting that the atmosphere has become gloomy as a result of the disappointing scorecard of the incumbent governor.
Ekezie, who is also the Southeast zonal ex-officio of the PDP, stated this on Friday in Owerri, the state capital, while receiving the Forum of Imo Editors and Columnists at his residence.
He expressed confidence in the level of political awareness in the state saying Imo people are fully prepared to boot out the APC administration from power come 2023.
The entrepreneur said infrastructure in the state has decayed while salaries of workers and pensions of retirees are mired in endless controversies.
Speaking further on the innovations within the PDP, Ekezie revealed that the leading opposition party in the state has been repositioned for resounding electoral victories, and added that the PDP’s outstanding performance during the seven months of the Rt. Hon. Emeka Ihedioha as governor has earned the party overwhelming goodwill among Imo people. He enthused that the party will ride on the unbeatable performance back to power.
According to the Imo-born real estate mogul,” the Ihedioha administration opened a floodgate of opportunities in the state, provided security and turned around the economy.”
He dismissed claims that some members of the party are defecting to the APC and insisted that no person who is relevant to the successes of the PDP at the polls in Imo has left the party.
