The 2019 Labour Party Senatorial Candidate for Orlu Zone, Dr Uche Onyeoma Ibeh, has called on women and youths in the zone to massively vote for Sen Osita Izunaso of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the forthcoming Senatorial election.

In a statement made available to National Newsbreak at the weekend, she frowned at the practice of some politicians abandoning the electorate, especially women and youths after the campaigns and elections, noting that the practice leaves women and youths disillusioned.

She encouraged Orlu women and youths to take advantage of the electioneering period to exercise their democratic rights in the general elections on February25, 2023, without fear of abandonment.

advised women and youths to speak in one voice and demand for good governance and inclusiveness.

She stated that it is time for women and youths to advocate for inclusiveness, good representation and tangible dividends of democracy which Sen Osita Izunaso represents. 

According to her, Orlu zone deserves effective, inclusive and people-oriented representation at the Red Chambers hence, the call on women and youths to support Sen Izunaso.

Recall that Dr. Ibeh stepped down for Sen Izunaso at the party primaries leading to his adoption as a consensus candidate.

According to her, a vote for Sen Izunaso is a vote for effective representation and sustainable development including health insurance initiatives, skills and entrepreneurial development for women and youths.
