The Imo chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has inaugurated its campaign council ahead of the November 11 governorship election.

The council was inaugurated by PDP chair Charles Ugwu in Owerri on Tuesday.

Mr Ugwu announced that the campaign council would have Ikenga Ugochinyere, a member of the House of Representatives, as director-general, and Marshal Okoroaforanyanwu as secretary.

Mr Ugwu, while inaugurating the campaign council, charged its members to work towards ensuring the party’s victory in the election.

“With the powers conferred on me as chairman of our great party, the PDP, I hereby inaugurate this campaign team for the success of our candidate, Senator Samuel Anyanwu, in the November 11 governorship election,” he said.

Mr Anyanwu is running for governor to end violence in Imo, revamp its health system and restore the dignity of the workforce and pensioners. He promised to return tourism to Imo and get the local governments working again.

He charged the council not to be afraid, but to carry out its lawful duties and not be intimidated by any person or group.

“I will lead and I fear nobody. I want to stop the bloodletting and suffering in the land. Do not be afraid, I know where I’m coming from. I am your messenger and I will lead you right. My name is Samuel, God has spoken and I have heard,” stated Mr Anyanwu.

Mr Okoroaforanyanwu said the choice of Mr Anyanwu, from the Imo East senatorial district, favoured the principle of equity, pointing out that the district had ruled the state for only seven months since the return of democratic rule in 1999.

Mr Okoroaforanyanwu, a former chair of the All Progressives Grand Alliance and the Social Democratic Party, urged Imo people to support Mr Anyanwu to “restore the lost glory of the state.”
