The Obazu-Mbieri born philanthropist and front-runner Governorship Candidate of the Young Progressives Party Chief Dr. Kemdi Opara has urged the other two zones in the State to support the charter of equity of 1999 produced by the leaders of the three zones.
He made this appeal at the 5th anniversary celebration of the Egbu Declaration held at the All Saints Cathedral, Egbu in Owerri North LGA where he firmly opposed the continued marginalization and suppression of Owerri zone, a zone otherwise known as Imo East Senatorial district with predominantly well-read and very intelligent but yet to be allowed to produce the Governor of Imo State for even a term.
Noting that it is repugnant to fairness, equity and Justice for any particular zone to want to keep producing governor to the detriment of others in the face of an existing Charter of Equity to rotate power amongst the three Zones. He urged Ndi Owerri zone and Imo people in general to shun pecuniary gains of the moment and objectively thoroughly assess him as the candidate of the Young Progressives Party (YPP) as well as his brother candidates of the People’s Democratic Party, Action Democratic Party and the All Progressives Grand Alliance who are from the Owerri zone and were present at the Egbu Declaration anniversary ceremony to enable them make informed decision to vote for the best with the leadership capacity, competence, integrity and content of character to bring about effective and productive governance for Imo State.
Maintaining his stand in solidarity with Owerri zone’s demand to produce the next Governor of the State in accordance with the 1991 Charter of Equity in Imo State and commending the Organizers of the event for proving to the World that the zone still has great and respected leaders of thought that mean well for the zone and its people. The YPP standard-bearer is optimistic that the program strongly signifies the beginning of the journey of Owerri zone to Douglas House come January 15, 2024.
