"Ndi Imo, Ndewo nu.
"In less than 48 hours, we shall all be heading to the polls. This decisive step at this period of our existence is key to the better future we so much desire. As you are aware, this election is an existential one, hence our decision at the ballot and the outcome thereafter is inseparable from the quality and sustainable development of our state.
"With the plethora of challenges that have confronted Imolites in the last 3 years, it is not in doubt that our people need someone that can pull the state back from the brink. That person must be believable and have a track record of verifiable, worthy actions in the past. He must have charisma and charm that will not only attract votes but also sustain the loyalty of the electorate."
