- The race for the Imo state governorship election has begun in earnest
- A member of the House of Representatives, Honourable Tony Nwulu, is one of the leading aspirants in the polls
- Nwulu, a member of the United Progressives Party (UPP), picked up his nomination form on Tuesday, September 11
Honourable Tony Nwulu, a member of the House of Representatives and governorship candidate of the UPP, on Tuesday, September 11, picked up his nomination form in the party headquarters in Abuja.
Nwulu, 39, is the sponsor of the Not Too Young To Run bill in the green chambers that was subsequently passed by President Muhammadu Buhari, opening up the political space for young politicians in the 2019 elections and beyond.
He promised to liberate Imolites “and restore our pride of existence” as he begins his quest to govern the south-east state in 2019.
Addressing supporters during the event, Honourable Nwulu said: “I seek your prayers in your daily devotions and support. There shall indeed be showers of blessings; seasons refreshing; precious reviving and sounds of abundance when we assume office.
“I bring message of hope to the unemployed youths, the deprived pensioners and the oppressed people of Imo state. I am confident that together we'll emerge victorious. We are one people, one destiny. With eyes fixed on the horizon and God's grace upon us, we shall carry on this great task of rebuilding Imo state and deliver it safely to future generations."
