“Purveyors of falsehood are at work again. The most recent is a publication in an Owerri Based Tabloid where it was alleged that Hon. Tony Nwulu will compromise the mandate given to him by members of the United Progressive Party (UPP)”.
The above is according to a release from the campaign office of Hon Tony Nwulu,UPP governorship candidate for 2019 election.The release stated that, the report is nothing but a figment of the imagination of the writer and a bundle of lies from the pit of hell peddled by desperate politicians, who have lost grip and steam.

Continuing,it said,”to set the records straight, Hon Tony Nwulu, the UPP governorship candidate in Imo State has no intentions whatsoever to compromise the mandate of the party willingly and freely given to him by thousands of UPP members in Imo State.
It is important to note that Nwulu, a true believer in a new order in Imo State where the lives of the citizenry will be better enhanced cannot abdicate such responsibility of salvaging the people from hunger and impoverishment ravaging Imolites.
Hon. Nwulu has therefore outlined a comprehensive socio economic roadmap that will restore the glory of Imo State that has been battered in the last twenty years and as such will never compromise such noble initiatives for a pot of porridge or for filthy lucre”.
The release also said, “it is important to state that the recent adoption of President Buhari by the national leadership of UPP led by the indefatigable National Chairman, Chekwas Okorie, was motivated by the conviction that President Buhari is the best among all others aspiring to lead the country in 2019”.
However, the UPP being a political party that has the socio economic and political interest of Igbos at heart deemed it necessary to endorse Buhari in 2019 as a basis for an Igbo to become Nigeria’s President in 2023.
Continuing, the release averred that “it is very clear that only Buhari ‘s second term in 2019 is the pathway for Igbos to be on the saddle of apex leadership and governance of the nation in 2023 since other geo political zones have, at one time or the other occupied the presidency”.
As if those were not enough reasons for the endorsement, it said, “these were the strong points that shaped and influenced the adoption of President Buhari’s second term by the UPP. It has nothing to do with Hon. Tony Nwulu trading off the governorship ticket of the UPP for the candidate of any political party in Imo State. Certainly, we believe that those peddling this falsehood against Hon. Nwulu and the UPP in Imo State are those counting their losses even before the governorship election in Imo State in 2019.
As merchants of deceit, they are scared of the rising political profile and overwhelming acceptance of the candidature of Hon. Tony Nwulu by millions of Imolites who have come to embrace a new order which Nwulu truly propagates and represents.
These elements who have been rejected by Imolites know that they stahave lost the opportunity of hoodwinking and deceiving the sophisticated Imo electorate anymore, moreso now that they have resolved to embrace Hon. Nwulu’s “Roadmap to Restoration” that will take Imo State away from the valley of despair and hopelessness in which it has regrettably found itself in the past four years to the mountain of prosperity.
Tony Nwulu cannot be compromised. Therefore those who are in the business of cheap blackmail should look elsewhere”,it concluded.
