The Imo state governorship candidate of the Young Progressive Party (YPP), Dr Linus Okorie, has recently been carrying out his persuasive campaigns at the grassroots level criss-crossing all the nooks and crannies of Orlu senatorial zone, and others preaching his gospel of hope and promise of economic turn-around for Imo people.
Okorie who was sighted in Oguta local government area this week, told his listeners of his plans to turn Imo state into a citadel of world class economy, with plenty of jobs for everybody especially the young ones and women, a situation that would transform the state into a fast growing economy, chosen as the next governor.
Dr Okorie who had hitherto incidented the Imo political atmosphere with his leadership training qualities, has been attracting large number of followership to himself especially among the youths, elite class and women.
In one of his speeches at a political rally, the youthful candidate assured the Imo electorate that his administration will bring about endless possiblity for Imo state and as a leadership expert, he understands what it means to put smile on the people, “this, I am prepared to do”, he said.
He appealed to the people, not to miss the opportunity to put right, the wrongs of the past years, by using their Permanent Voters Cards (PVCs) wisely on February 9, 2019.
One of the women who simply identified herself as Mrs Pauline and spoke to our reporter at the venue of the rally at Oguta, said that, she has been hearing of the young man from one of her sons, who turned out to be a fan of Dr Okorie and applauded Dr Linus Okorie, as a credible new breed of leader, who should be supported by all Imo electorate to engender excellent governance in the state.
She vowed to cast her vote for him and will devote her time to campaign for his success, as governor of Imo state.
