Business Mogul and Philanthropist of note, Prince Alex Mbata, has been called upon by former Councillors in Owerri zone to officially join the race for Owerri zone senatorial seat.
In a statement signed by over 200 hundred Councillors drawn from the nine local governments that make up Owerri zone, they commended Prince Mbata and his Humanitarian Foundation, for it’s recent empowerment programme.
“The Empowerment Programme by the Prince Alex Mbata Humanitarian Foundation is indeed life saving for our people, the beneficiaries among them are the less privileged and down trodden who have almost lost hope of their means of survival, the words and mouth are not enough to thank you for this laudable gesture.
“The former elected Councillors being the grassroots “Generals” of this democracy, are quite aware of the pains of our people, your timely intervention at this point in time is worthy of commendation”
The Councilors thanked Prince Mbata “for your kind gesture to humanity, your consistent empowerment of the Imo people, and your recent successful empowerment to our people”
The Councillors appealed to Prince Alex Mbata “to consider and vie for Senate position as to represent Imo East Senatorial Zone in the coming 2023 general election, though, you may not have considered it wise to contest for a political office, but we have found you worthy, capable, competent and trustworthy to occupy such sensitive positions that can save and restore hopes of our people”
“However, it is your choice to either accept or reject this request, but, it is obvious that turning down of this appeal will shatter hopes and aspiration of our people. Hence, if our request is accepted, we shall take upon ourselves to mobilize our people to ensure that you do not spend a dime purchasing the Nomination Form, as we shall bear the cost” part of the statement read.
