I will be sworn in as Imo State Governor in 2019. That was declaration of Senator Samuel Anyanwu, senator representing Owerri zone in the senate when he addressed his co- coordinators as his MCC road Constituency office at the weekend.
The Senate Committee Chairman on Ethics and Privileges said he wants to change the perception among party faithful that the PDP in Imo State has been bought over by someone. He reaffirmed that he is the race to win the governorship polls and not for jokes.
“ I am into PDP Guber race to win, and I am going to not only win the party ticket, I will win the Governorship of Imo State come 2019. Since I declared for 2019 Imo Governorship race, fear has gripped APC, because they know that I am a better character and material to win the governorship election. I have come to charge you, and those who believed in me to get prepared for the challenge ahead, we are going to lead a campaign of purpose and surely we will win together” he said
The senator stated that his campaigns will be anchored on issues as he will never resort to attack or run down his opponents.
“ I will never attack or run down any of my opponents. Nobody should create enemy for me, I have no enemy and know where I am going and victory is ours. I have come to separate the war, for Orlu, Owerri and Okigwe will accept my candidature because I am accessible and friend to all irrespective of political party” he said
The entrance of Senator Anyanwu into the governorship race in the PDP has raised the tempo of the contest in the party in the State.
