The people chanted amidst ecstasy their unalloyed support for Ogwumabiri Umuahia, lamenting that their impacts on the development of Umuahia had been over the years, consigned to oblivion, hence no government project has ever been sited in their area, nor has any government nor representative improved their livelihood.

As a former president-general of Ohuhu, he empowered so many of his people and offered many employment opportunities. He has given many scholarship and sent some abroad. Your votes for him will not be a waste.

“Please, my people, we’re endorsing him today and promising that we shall vote him and he must surely win. Our roads are impassible; they collected our lands and built an estate on it yet they have refused to construct our roads. And he has promised to build our roads but if he doesn’t, hold me accountable”, she vowed, as she prayed for more of God’s blessings upon candidate.

Saddled with emotions, Chief Aguocha described the present state of living condition of the people as disheartening, lamenting that the Community has over the years been relegated to the background inspite of donating large expanse of their land to build a Housing Estate.

He expressed bitterness over the impoverished condition of the villagers, which he blamed on the negligence of various past administrations towards the community.

“For a Community that donated a large expanse of land with which they built an estate to be in a dilapidated state. All their focus is now on the Housing Estate and not the village that donated the land. The Community has dilapidated infrastructure, no road, no water, no light, their local stream, the only source of drinking water have been destroyed from road grading. The people are really suffering.

“My assurance is that when elected, we’ll look into their matter by attracting more meaningful development projects that will enhance their way of life. I am saddened by the poor living condition of the village Agbama and my tenure when elected will address the matter fruitfully.

Aguocha who also holds the traditional titles of Udo Ji Agu-Ohuhu, while restating his unflinching commitment towards making better the lots of the people, thanked the latter for the warm reception accorded him and his entourage.

He solemnly promised to restore their hope, as he implored the people to ensure that they cast their votes in his favour, as well as all other candidates of the party,

“We are appealing to you to vote not just for me alone but for all the Labour candidates, beginning from our presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Obi, Dr. Alex Otti, for Governor and the State Assembly candidates across the state. Because Labour Party has come to change the narrative. So, when you get to the polling unit, look out for where you have the picture of father, mother and child and vote. We shall meet with you again and we shall come with our presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Obi and Alex Otti and all other candidates of the party in the State

Also speaking, the Umuahia South Local Government Chairman of LP, Hon. Chukwudi Okpoto urged Aguocha to remain consistent and resolute in the course he is pursuing, “because victory is assured”, he boasted.

Continuing, he said; “I am percent percent confident that he is going to win this election. The Agbama 1 is already for Labour Party”, he promised, as he used the medium to advise the people to also remain consistent and ensure they assist the party to extirpate bad Government from the State.

Corroborating, a representative of the men folk regretted that the people had over the years, been subjected to abject poverty but expressed great joy over the glimmers of hope brought to them by the LP candidate.

Hear him: “We have been kept in a very poor condition for so many years now and no body cares about us nor has anyone ever remembered us but we thank God for sending us his son.

Sir (Dr.) Mishak Nnanta, restated his commitment to remain a strong voice in the advocacy of not only the interest of the people of Ikwuano/Umuahia but the Igbo nation in general.

“If some feel that we may come to a point where we should deny ourselves to remain relevant, then count me out; “I am not beholding to anyone; I have never abused public trust nor stolen public funds so that I could perhaps be constrained from defending the course of Ndi Igbo neither would I be sleep induced when called upon to speak in defence of justice and equity for our people.”

He vowed to be an outstanding voice for Ndigbo at the Green Chambers, in keeping with the commitment of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s ideals of equity, justice and fairness for Ndigbo and humanity in general.

He pledged to work assiduously towards a restructured Nigeria, pointing out that “Nigeria must be restructured within the context of true Federalism and economic development realities.

In his words: “It is my desire also that the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria be redrawn or amended holistically in such a manner as to be a genuine constitution reflective of the desires of the people and its economic and development aspirations. By so doing, the incessant agitations and calls for secession will be fundamentally addressed and rested.

In addition, Aguocha made bold to state that when elected and in line with, Mr. Peter Obi ‘s Manifesto for a great Nigeria, he will propose to sponsor a bill that will criminalizes and sanction governments for non payment of salaries, pensions and gratuity in Nigeria.

If there are opportunities in any of the federal agencies whether the Police, Army, or any of the paramilitary agencies and any of the various ministries and agencies”, assuring that he would endeavour to create sustainable employment opportunities for the Constituents.”

Responding, Gburugburu Ndigbo pledged their unreserved support for the candidate, saying, “as long as the people of Umuajata-Olokoro Community are concerned, we shall support you and we shall vote Labour Party beginning from the presidency to the least contestable position.

Gburugburu decried the deplorable condition of the State and her inhabitants over the years, which he lamented was consequent on bad leadership, and blamed same on some political profiteers, whom he alleged had colonised the political structure of a community.

“In the past, because of the few persons that colonised the political structure of Olokoro, we voted in the wrong people who have helped in impoverishing the Community. However, now, we are all voting en mass for Labour, beginning from Peter Obi to House Assembly Candidates.
