IMO APC COMMENDS IWUANYANWU FOR HIS STATESMANSHIP
CALL ON OTHER STAKEHOLERS TO EMULATE HIM
The leadership of All Progressives Congress (APC) Imo State chapter has commended a frontline chieftain of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the state, Chief Engr. Emmanuel C. Iwuanyanwu for his rare maturity and demonstration of uncommon character required of a sincere statesman, patriot and a true leader of repute, whose commitment and dedication to the peace, progress and development of the state overrides his personal interest and political affiliation.
The party described Iwuanyanwu’s presence and his landmark commendation on His Excellency Governor Hope Uzodimma at the maiden Imo Stakeholders meeting held recently as convened by the governor as a true testimonial and vote of implicit confidence of a father on his worthy and dependable son.
Iwuanyanwu, irrespective of his political persuasion had described Governor Uzodimma as a man whose investment in human development is second to none, even before his emergence as the governor of Imo State. According to the elder statesman, Uzodimma’s investment is not in the inordinate acquisition of physical properties, but in human capital development. He went further to call on Imolites to come all out and support the Uzodimma – led administration for the overall wellbeing of Imo people, whose emergence he described as divine and the will of God.
Imo APC is not unmindful of Iwuanyanwu’s strategic leadership position in the opposition Peoples Democratic Party in the state in particular, and Nigeria in general, hence the party appreciates his exemplary disposition of politics without bitterness and the cruxification of one’s individual interest for the collective good and betterment of the people.
The party, therefore called on other relevant Imo leaders across party lines to emulate the proprietor of Champion newspapers by eschewing the trending politics of bitterness, acrimony and deliberate fabrication of malicious falsehood to discredit government’s efforts and commitment towards the fulfillment of its campaign promises to Imo people.
It is the expectation of Imo APC, that other leaders will toe the patriotic path led by erstwhile financier of Iwuanyanwu Nationale to rally support and solidarity for the Uzodimma – led administration for the overall wellbeing of the state. It is the conviction of APC as a party, that our love, loyalty and dedication for our individual political parties should not override our sense of patriotism and dedication towards the development of our dear state. This is so because no one is born as a member of a political party.
