A new political pressure group in Imo State under the aegis of “Greater Imo Union (GIU)”, has thrown its weight behind the aspiration of Chief Felix Idiga, Nkwachikwere Orlu, to represent his people of Orlu, Orsu and Oru East Federal constituency at the House of Representatives.
Declaring this stand over the weekend, a chieftain of the group, Chief Chris Eburuaja, stated, “group and I will support JAFAC. We are willing to work with him to achieve his political ambition of being a member of the Federal House of Representatives”.
He explained that Greater Imo Union which is a Whatsapp forum with greater Orlu followership though most of them operate from outside the shores of Nigeria and in the diaspora, are interested in ensuring that quality people like Felix Idiga emerged in their various localities for elective political offices, come 2019 general elections, when they hope to mobilize massively for Idiga.
“We are poised to encourage these people wherever they are seen even if it includes buying them the nomination forms”, he reiterated. He urged the people of the federal constituency to key into the union’s position to ensure victory for Chief Felix Idiga adding, “so tell JAFAC that we are ready to purchase the expression of interest form for him as long as he continues with those good qualities we have seen in him over the years especially in the area of philanthropy, using his JAFAC Foundation to touch lives.
Chris Eburuaja stated that JAFAC is the only aspirant who has the capacity to give Orlu effective representation and influence dividends of democracy, hence the unanimous adoption by members of the Greater Imo Union.
