The gubernatorial candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Ebonyi State, Mr. Ifeanyi Chukwuma Odii has said the party does not believe in violence to win election.
Odii, who vowed to end the sufferings of Ebonyians, especially those hawking in the streets of Lagos, Port-Harcourt and other major cities in Nigeria, revealed his commitment to bring greater development and transformation to the State if elected governor.
The PDP guber candidate made this known at the flag-off of the party’s rally at Ameka, Ezza South Local Government Area of the State.
He added that he would make industrialization of the State one of the major objectives of his government.
According to him: “I will give empowerment to the youth, bring transformation to the civil servants, pay your pensions and gratuities, pay your salaries as at when due, give scholarships to deserving students and empowerment to all and sundry.
“We’ll industrialize Ebonyi State, so that there will be jobs for the youths. Under our watch, we will remove every Ebonyian from every street they are hawking across the country.”
He described the people of Ezza clan as forthright and dependable allies at all times, urging them to vote the PDP across board as his government will always carry them along in the scheme of things.
Earlier in a remark, the former governor of the State and Senatorial candidate for Ebonyi North zone, in the 2023 general election, Sam Egwu, emphasized that Ebonyi will remain a PDP State even after the 2023 general election.
He revealed that five (5) National Assembly members in the state refused to join Governor David Umahi to the All Progressives Congress, APC.
Egwu stressed that Ebonyi would remain a PDP State, just as he tasked all aggrieved members of the party who lost in the primary elections to come back and join the fold.
