APC members in Ezinihitte Mbaise and Ahiazu Mbaise local government areas of Imo State, have said that Prince Alex Mbata is the best choice for Owerri Zone Senate in 2023, saying he has capacity to give them quality representation.
For this, they vowed to give him their unalloyed support to enable him emerge as the APC flag bearer in the party’s primary election, so that APC will win the general election to affect lives meaningfully.
This was stated by the party through the Ahiazu Mbaise and Ezinihitte Mbaise APC LGAs Chairmen, Chief Ethel Ugwu and Mr. Mike Adindu including the former House of Representatives Member for Ahiazu/Ezinihitte Mbaise, Rt. Hon. Nnanna Igbokwe and an APC Stakeholder in Ezinihitte Mbaise, Hon. Christian Njoku, while addressing separately PAM Campaign Council during a consultative meeting with the APC delegates held at the Palace of Eze Adindu and the residence of Chief Paul Obasi, APC Apex Leader in Ahiazu Mbaise, on Friday.
They said “Alex Mbata, not only being a super philanthropist, has deep respect and love for the people of Ahiazu Mbaise and Ezinihitte Mbaise. We will go for the best choice. Yes, PAM is over ripe for the Senate Seat. We will do the right thing at the right time. He will carry the day and he will win the primary election because he is the best choice”.
For Hon. Nnanna Igbokwe, “Alex Mbata has the most organized campaign structure and this shows that he will be well organized when he gets to the Senate. His humility, his sense of composure and philanthropy are second to none. He has the interest to lift the people of Owerri Senatorial District from penury and I believe PAM will not forget us. Therefore, we beg you not to forget the youth, women and most importantly, attract federal government to come in and tackle the golly erosion that has cut off Ihitte- Ubi community from the rest of Ahiazu Mbaise”.
Speaking earlier, PAM Campaign Council Chairman and Director- General, Chief Henry Njoku (Haritex) and Rt. Hon. Godfrey Dikeocha, described Prince Alex Mbata as having the fear of God in him, noting that he is the first Imo indigene who gave money to Imo State Government (20m) to help cushion the effect of Covid-19 in the state as well as single handedly built road at New Owerri near Protea Hotel or Zoo.
They added that “PAM also paid and furnished offices for APC in Owerri Zone. For over 25 years he has been empowering indigent people especially within Owerri Zone single handedly. We begged him to come out for Senate having seen goodness, fortune and asset in him and he agreed. Let delegates consider him most qualified for the position and vote for him to emerge victorious in the primary election”.
However, Prince Alex Mbata, in his response, while saluting the people of Ahiazu Mbaise and Ezinihitte Mbaise for welcoming him warmly and believing in him, promised never to disappoint the people if he goes to the Senate.
“I pledge not to disappoint the people of Owerri Senatorial District if God shows me mercy to be at the Red Chamber as He has always done. Please, APC delegates, find me fitting for the Senate Seat and vote for me to emerge as the APC flag bearer in the 2023 general election. I will win and I shall attract infrastructure such as hospital, road, electricity including job creation to lift our people from poverty and suffering and restore peace, comfort and security. Thank you for your support”, Mbata added.
