Ahead of the November 11 governorship election, Governor Hope Uzodimma of Imo State has unveiled his running mate Chinyere Ekomaru and maintained the All Progressives Congress (APC) is the best bet for the state.
Governor Uzodimma disclosed this during Ekomaru’s unveiling in Owerri.
According to him, his administration has kept faith with the Imo people, fulfilled all campaign promises and if re-elected, will consolidate the existing foundation to deliver an industrially prosperous and safe Imo State.
He also reiterated his position of ensuring a peaceful environment for a free and fair election in November.
Uzodimma believes his government has done well in securing lives and properties despite some security breaches in the state.
Contrary to speculations, Uzodimma says the choice of a new running mate does not mean he has issues with the present Deputy Governor Placid Njoku. The development, he continued, is due to ecumenical and political permutations.
