The Imo State governorship candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, Tony Ejiogu, has appealed to the people of the state to desist from selling their votes to the highest bidder.
Ejiogu said this while rounding off his campaign on Thursday with a pledge to serve the people of the state with integrity and commitment.
The APGA governorship candidate, while addressing a crowd of supporters at Owerri North, assured them of the beginning of a new dawn in Imo politics, adding, “It’s ‘time to rebuild Imo’ and restore its lost glory rampaged by insecurity, poor public infrastructure, unemployment, comatose health sector and the neglect of workers and pensioners’ welfare.
“I speak to your consciences. Let’s all come together and make this project a reality. Vote and protect your vote; stand there and make sure your vote is counted. There will be no voter intimidation.”
He added, “I have presented myself and taken the bold step, and we are well-positioned to move Imo to the promised land. Yes, there’s hunger in the land, but change your mindset and don’t accept money to vote for people who will still keep you in bondage. Let’s make things right.”
While urging his party supporters and Imolites to troop out en masse to vote for APGA come Saturday, November 11, Ejiogu urged them to conduct themselves in a peaceful manner and ensure that their votes count.
Those present at the event included the state chairman of APGA, the deputy governorship candidate, the Director-General of the Tony Ejiogu Campaign, ward chairmen, women, youth leaders, elder statesmen, and a host of other stakeholders.
