Governor of Imo State, Hope Uzodimma has said that the All Progressives Congress, will emerge victorious in the South-East in the 2023 general election.
He said this is going to happen because the party is the only party with structures in all the 774 Local Government Areas of the country.
Uzodimma who doubles as the Chairman of the APC Presidential Campaign Council in the South-East, disclosed this at a seminar organised by the party for its candidates in Owerri.
“APC is already winning and will win in the South-East because APC is the only political party that has party structure at the polling units and booths in all 774 LGAs of the country,” he said.
He said that the South-East has every reason to appreciate President Muhammadu Buhari for what he has done for the zone in his almost eight years as the President of Nigeria.
The governor recounted the president’s achievements in the South-East including the second Niger Bridge and the rehabilitation of the Federal Highways in the zone.
Others were the establishment of a Naval Base in Oguta LGA of Imo State as well as the ongoing reconstruction of the 200-bed hospital at Imo University State Teaching Hospital Orlu by NNPC, among others.
He warned members of the party against deceit by groups who often claim to back the South-East Presidency after they failed to support aspirants from the zone at the presidential primaries of the APC.
“The Igbo people have been a victim of mistaken identity. There is the need for the South-East to take their destiny in their own hands because if you don’t say I am, nobody will say you are,” he said.
