Ihedioha’s Triumphant entry into Aboh Mbaise, A historic Homecoming of a Governor-in-waiting
—Ndi Imo have agreed on Ihedioha- Ezekwem
As the Campaign rally of the Peoples Democratic Party, Imo State, moved to Aboh Mbaise Local Government today, the good people of the area came out in their numbers to receive an illustrious son who has remained a worthy ambassador of the land.
The people of Aboh Mbaise have utilized every opportunity to appreciate a worthy son who brought laurels and no shame home. Supposing Ihedioha is a bad son, Aboh Mbaise People will not be proud of him like they are. Little wonder the people showed spontaneous support, greeting, waving, while some were seen dancing to the beautiful jingles of Ihedioha, others were seen chanting their own songs.
Ihedioha’s Triumphant entry into the Local Government area can better be described as a Historic Homecoming of a Governor-in-Waiting. The homecoming of a positive ambassador and a worthy son. With gun salutes at every point, the people traditionally displayed respect and honor. With traditional dances heralding his arrivals, they showed love and happiness. With the long motorcade and okada riders, majority of whom were going for other things but had to suspend the days activities for Ihedioha, they showed solidarity.
The journey began when His Excellency arrived for the boundary reception at Lapach by Radio Nigeria, Junction, preceding with a motorcade to the Palace of HRH Eze Alex Ike of Umuhu Okwuato, where He met with the traditional rulers of Aboh Mbaise to seek their blessings before heading for the rally. The meeting with the traditional rulers gave way for a Town Yall Meeting held at the prestigious Ezuruezu Mbaise Hall.
The significance of choosing Ezuruezu Hall as the venue for the Town Hall is a total reaffirmation that the people of Mbaise nation have agreed to rally round their Son Ihedioha, a feat which they demonstrated on the 28th December 2018, at the Same Ezuruezu Hall.
At the Sports Centre Eke Nauru where the rally held, it’s was more a cultural festival than a party rally. The excited crowd of supporters moved from place to the other chanting victory and solidarity Songs. These attracted the admiration of the State Party Chairman and other leaders who accompanied his Excellency.
For the State Chairman of the PDP, Chief Charles Ezekwem, nothing-less was expected from Aboh Mbaise, a Local Government he described as organized and most coordinated. He stated that Imo people have resolved that the next governor of the State will come from Owerri Zone, hence Ihedioha has remained the best and only option.
He urged the people of Aboh Mbaise to take advantage of this opportunity to vote massively for the Peoples Democratic Party during the elections. He described Ihedioha as a man who brought honor and dignity home, stressing that Ihedioha as the Governor of Imo from May 2019 is a feat that must be collectively achieved.
His Excellency, Dr Achike Udenwa, Prof. Viola Onwuliri, Dr Mrs Kema Chikwe, Hon. Bede Eke, amongst other notable leaders of the party were in attendance.
