aspiration and offered to line up behind Ihedioha in the bid to flush out
the Rochas Okorocha Government from Imo state.
Obi and Amadi spoke during the governorship rallies at Mbaitoli and
Ikeduru Local Government Areas over the weekend where a tumultuous crowd
caused a huge traffic stretch over several miles as thousands of party
faithfuls walked long distances to be part of the events.
At Mbaitoli where canon shots and huge shouts of joy heralded Ihedioha's
entry into the campaign venue, Peter Obi advised Imo electorate to
identify themselves with the re-election project of President Goodluck
Jonathan as well as Ihedioha as Imo State Governor.

Okorocha for his failure to uplift the living standard of the people and
for being hostile to President Jonathan. He said that every responsible
governor will always be in the good books of the President and not to work
against him. He therefore urged Imolites to reciprocate the good gestures
of Mr. President by voting his party PDP to power at all levels, adding
that Imo should be reconnected to the national political grid once again.
According to him, Ihedioha is the chosen one to salvage Imo State and
bring back its last glory.
At Ikeduru LGA, one of the frontline guber aspirants and President of the
Pan African Parliament, Hon. Bethel Amadi stormed the Iho, campaign ground
with his supporters to declare support for Ihedioha.

crowd and declared his total support and commitment towards the
realisation of the governorship project.
He maintained that Imo PDP is now stronger and more united adding that
Hon. Ihedioha is now the chosen one to lead the state to greater heights.
The jubilant Ihedioha, thanked Hon. Amadi for his support and reception
for his entourage and assured that he will work closely with him towards
making Imo State a model state.
