compromises to

tonic that
will see them chase People's Democratic Party away with their failed

the five
South Eastern States are one and  wondered why others States should be

behind in growth and development. He promised them of Imo example, which

he said is
achievable with hard work and reaching out. He boasted that APC States

have dwarfed
other States of the parties with dwindling ideas in terms of performance and

“Governor Okorocha who is synonymous with free education programmes from

primary to
tertiary level, massive infrastructural development and five star

performances in
every facets has also promised to throw his weight behind the party to

fear of
intimidation since the have the people and the backing of Governor Owelle

Okorocha and the entire leadership of the party.

Congress, Chief
Goerge Moghalu told the party faithful to go on sensitization of the

people and win
people for the party. He particularly said that the leader in the South

East Owelle
Rochas Okorocha has taken the lead in governance as no other States in the

East can boast of Governor Okorocha's giant strides. He said he understood

challenges but should not be intimidated by anybody. They should stand up

to be
counted if really the want change, which is long over due in the South

East and in
Abia in Particular.
Mr. Moghalu in emotional tone said he is particularly interested in Abia

because he has a history with the State. ” I was born here, brought up

here, may
parents are here and I had my education here. Things have fallen apart.

Let us make
hares while the sun shinee. Abia is a failed State and it is ripe for

harvest for
our great party, APC.”
In the same vein, the National Vice Chairman, South East, Chief Emmanuel

also reiterated the need to sell the product they have since all the APC

States are
doing far better that PDP States. He also used Governor Okorocha as a

example and  assured them that the same police change can still be

replicated in
Abia and other South East States.
Speaking further he assured them that the party is not unaware of the fact

that some
people have worked and sacrificed for the the party to come to the level
