2023: Group Beckons On Ihedioha To Join Imo Guber Race


A volunteer political group, Ihedioha Reelection Movement (IRM) has commenced a tour of the nine local government areas in Owerri Zone of Imo State to sensitize the people on the need for the former governor of the state, Rt. Hon Emeka Ihedioha to join the 2023 Imo Governorship race.

The group which kicked off its tour on Wednesday with Ezinihitte Mbaise LGA stormed the residence of Chief Magnus Chilaka where it inaugurated its foot soldiers from the booths, wards and LGA.

It replicated same in Ahiazu Mbaise at Chief Ugwuibe’s residence in Ogbe Ahiara, Chief Bar Mike Ahamba’s home in Lorji, Aboh Mbaise LGA and Chief Emma Nwogu’s residence in Amafor,Imerienwe, Ngor Okpala LGA.

At each stop, the Leader/Convener of Ihedioha Reelection Movement (IRM), Chief Bon Unachukwu said that the movement is a self-funded body by those inspired by what Ihedioha did in seven months in office as governor and believe that Imo State will lose a lot should Ihedioha fail to join the race.

Chief Unachukwu disclosed that IRM came to preach a gospel of prosperity, progress, security, employment, science and information technology, solid infrastructure, transparency, ease of doing business, education, sports, health and future of our children etc, as represented by Ihedioha.

He pleaded that the masses should join hand to persuade Ihedioha to return and rebuild Imo.

He said that it is now the responsibility of lovers of Ihedioha, his followers and members of IRM in the grassroots to take the message deep to homes, churches, farms, markets and everywhere.

The IRM Convener maintained that his group is not stopping any person interested in joining the race on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from competing, adding that IRM is a democratic body that adheres to rule of law and democratic tenets, especially free choice.

“We are not stopping anybody or saying it should be left for Ihedioha, no. Let there be a contest where delegates will decide who picks the ticket” Unachukwu said.

In their various responses, all the leaders who spoke for the LGAs concurred that Ihedioha should not only contest, but also participate to win and continue from where he stopped before being removed from office in January 14, 2020.

The Secretary of the movement, Chief Henry Ekpe said the movement will roll into other LGAs in Owerri Zone from tomorrow, before heading into Okigwe and Orlu zones with the “Ihedioha gospel”.

Ekpe said the group has no time for mundane things like mudslinging, but devoted mainly to marketing its principal.
