2023: Come Let’s Rebirth Ikwuano, APP Candidate, Anyaragbu Urges Diasporan Sons, Daughters
…Drums support for Mascot Kalu’s agenda for greater Abia
By Charity Uwakwe
In his burning zeal to reinvigorate Ikwuano Local Government Area of Abia State, the candidate of Action People’s Party, (APP) for Ikwuano State Constituency, Hon. Wisdom LAN Anyaragbu has made a clarion call to the diasporan sons and daughters of the Council to support the struggle to actualise the vision.
Anyaragbu the made this passionate appeal to the elites of the council resident in the Western world, urging them to extend their hand of support to enable him rebuild the area.
He pointed out that Ikwuano was in dire need of their wealth of knowledge and experience as amassed over the years to regain her lost dignity.
According to the people oriented vibrant youth, it is high time the right thinking members of Ikwuano resident in Nigeria and all over the world, “came together in support of me so as to help eradicate the penury, which has sapped the tap root of the Council.
He opined that working collaboratively with their sons and daughters resident in the international communities would go a long way in ushering his God- given leadership expertise in Ikwuano, thus expedite the actualization of our desired new Ikwuano, as ought to be.
Speaking during an interface with newsmen in Umuahia, September 8, during a consultation tour to concerned Ikwuano stakeholders resident in Umuahia, the state’s capital, Anyaragbu stressed that, the bible says: “Wisdom is profitable to direct and we all acknowledge that TOURISM is part of advanced education.
“Therefore I call on all Ikwuano Sons and daughters in diaspora to join hands with me in this progressive mission to transform our home where our remains shall be laid which belong to us all.”
Continuing, he said: “It is, therefore, a necessity that we marry experience of home growth, awareness and diasporic experience glued with external relations, to promote new millennium ideologies, innovations, industrialization, development and propagate the exodus of starvation, poverty, non performance, mediocrity, incompetence & zero passion towards service to the Constituency.”
He expressed bitterness over the long-drawn-out impoverishment of the people of the Council, lamented that poor representation contributed maximally to the state of underdevelopment of the area, as he insisted that ‘all hands must be on deck’ to bring back hope to the people.
Anyaragbu, who described ‘Tourism’ as a major aspect of advanced education, with an aura of confidence, assured that the people would “witness transformation and see results beginning from first 100 days in office.”
In a related development, Hon Anyaragbu applauded the youth Presidents of his Oboro clan for their doggedness towards making “our Communities habitable for all and sundry.
Furthermore, he expressed delight in the endorsement of APP Governorship Candidate, Chief Hon. Mascot Uzor Kalu by Oboro clan and implored all Ikwuano sons and daughters, at home and in diaspora to support the latter.
He described Mascot as another Godsent to liberate Abia and make it great again.
Moreso, he informed that the APP Candidate, whose vision, according to him, is to rebuild Abia, would stop at nothing in achieving this, if elected as the next Governor.
“Let us also support the prospective governorship candidate of APP, who is well read, Educated, investor in human capital per excellence, Industrialist, most experienced as a former chief of staff, well endowed and having project rebuild Abia State Capital as a priority which Ikwuano is part of”, he said.
