National Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Samuel Nnaemeka Anyanwu has described the 4th annual Egbu declaration as an expression of the people’s firm belief in equity, justice and fairness for good governance in the state. Anyanwu commended the organizers from Owerri zone in particular and Imo people at large for taking such a bold step aimed at changing political direction in 2023.
According to him, “when injustice, lack of equity and fair play are the order of the day in a state supposedly owned by the entire Imo people, the quest for good governance becomes a mirage”. He maintained that until Owerri zone is allowed to be at par in the governance of the state like her Orlu and Okigwe zone counterparts, the message of unity being chorused will be viewed as deceitful and meaningless.
Senator Anyanwu appealed to political leaders to take decisions that will guarantee equity, justice and fairness in the political arrangements of the state, expressing optimism that such step will engender socio-economic development and inter-zonal cooperations. He urged Imo people to join the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), maintaining that the party remains the only credible alternative that will guarantee political freedom in the state, South East and Nigeria in general.
While charging the people to remain formidable in their bid to enthrone political sanity in 2023, he appealed to leaders from other zones to key into the vision being championed by Owerri zone.
