Ahead of November 11 Governorship election in Imo, the members of Orluzurumee social cultural group have vowed to support Senator Athan Achonu the Governorship Candidate of the Labour party.

The group gave the assurance on Tuesday when Achonu and his entourage paid them a courtesy visit.

Addressing the August Visitors, the President General of Orluzurumee, Sir Dr Chris Esiobu( KSC) revealed that Orluzurumee as a non Political organization was created in the 80s to ensure the well-being of her People and Imo State in general hence they would only Support any Candidate who has the interest of the generality of Imo People at heart.

Esiobu,a one time Governorship Candidate in Imo and a social crusader assured Achonu of the support of the organization in the forthcoming election.

Dr Esiobu who used the forum to call on Imo People, particularly the Governorship Candidates of various political parties to eschew politics of bitterness and play within the ambit of the law made it clear that God during the creation had already singled out a particular person to govern Imo ahead of next election, adding that what the electorate would perform on the stated date is a mere fulfilment of all righteousness.

Describing as uncalled for and anti democracy, Esiobu condemned the curse made on Orlu sons and daughters supporting other gorvernorship candidates from other zones.

He however encouraged Orlu sons and daughters to support candidates of their choice in the forthcoming election pointing out that the recent curses by Orlu Monarchs would not have any effect on the people because they didn’t offend the gods by supporting other candidates or contesting for elections. 

He further used the medium to appeal to electorate to vote any candidate who has the capacity to move Imo to the next height irrespective of political party the person belongs pointing out that the Association believes in charter of equity and rotation of power amongst the three Geopolitical Zones of Imo State. 

  Esiobu further used the forum to intimate the Governorship hopeful on the plans of Orluzurumee to organize a prayer summit where Orlu sons and daughters will gather to seek the face of God for forgiveness of our sins, mercy, peace, unity and progress  ahead of the poll.

Earlier in his speech, the Governorship hopeful of Labour party, Senator Athan Achonu said that he came to visit the organization and also to appeal for their support. Achonu who vowed to make Imo better if elected as Governor in the next election reminded the people of his earlier visit in 2019 when he first ran for same seat as well as the promise the group made to support him any time it was the turn of Okigwe Zone.
