Founder and Chief Executive Officer, ABC transport services, Frank Nneji, had formally joined the race to replace Rochas Okorocha, as the governor of Imo State Government in 2019.

He begun the process, on Wednesday, when he led his political friends and supporters to the headquarters of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA), in Abuja, to pick the governorship nomination form of the party after the payment of N10 million.

APGA National Chairman, Victor Oye, received the aspirant at the party headquarters and presented him the party’s nomination form and other relevant documents after a Fidelity Bank Cheque of N10 million was presented to him by the aspirant.

Dr. Nneji told journalists shortly after he received the form that time to rescue Imo State from the clutches of incompetent and inexperienced political leaders, who have only succeeded in increasing inequality, poverty and destruction of legacies built by the founding fathers of the state, is now.

According to Nneji, “My people have asked me to undertake the task because of their trust and confidence in me. And I have assured them that I would neither disappoint nor betray their trust,” he said.

Nneji also told journalists and his supporters that he is well prepared to bring the much needed development and economic transformation in Imo state which, local and international indications, have confirmed to be most literacy state in Nigeria.

He was optimistic that his success at the primary elections and the elections proper in 2019 would be made possible through the massive grassroots support that he enjoy from the electorates.

He, thus, challenged all party members to queue behind him so they could collectively defeat godfatherism, incompetent leadership, underdevelopment and convincingly restore the lost Imo state.

  1. I think this is the kind of people that South East need now to drive economic improvement which really requires people with proven capacity to generate practical ideas and not people whose sources of wealth are dubious, or people with no known sources of livelihood other than wealth from political participation, and without capacity to tackle the myriad of economic and infrastructural challenges facing the region. We need more of such people who are not in short supply in IMO State to forward to enable IMO people enough choice aside the prevalent political jobbers which presently fills the political filament of Imo State. APGA which was formed by Ojukwu should sit up and note that the hope of Ndigbo for greatness is more resting on it than any other political party and as such should not impose anybody to govern any South East state who does not believe in Igbo and Ojukwu ideals.
