The ward-round tour of the Abia state Action Peoples Party (APP) governorship candidate, Chief Mascot Uzor Kalu, came to a glamorous end in Isuikwuato yesterday, marking an end to the first phase of his unprecedented grassroots campaign and political mobilization, MUK TV can report.
Chief Kalu, who traversed the nooks and crannies of Abia state for the past four months, in the course of the tour, delivered his party’s manifesto and ideologies to the people, made over 300 stops, and visited over 200 ABSIEC wards and communities.
At Isuikwuato yesterday, the APP governorship candidate, along with his party’s candidates for the Isuikwuato/Umunneochi Federal House of Representatives and the Suikwuato State House of Assembly, Dr. (Hon.) Lilian Chinasa Obenwa and Hon. Chidi Mmaduekwe, respectively, visited four wards—ward 1, Otampa ward 3, Eluama ward 4, and ward 6—bringing an end to the APP ward round that started in August this year.
Speaking to MUK TV yesterday, an excited Chief Kalu expressed optimism about emerging victorious in the upcoming election because of the overwhelming acceptability of his party at the grassroots, while noting that the tour has further given him a comprehensive insight into the infrastructural and human capital needs of each community and how best to tackle them when elected into office.
He also thanked God for protecting him all through the tour and appreciated members of his campaign team for embarking on the undaunted task of traversing every part of Abia State with him.
