In aftermath of the Imo State governorship election held on November 11,2023, Senator Athan Achonu and his deputy, Hon Tony Nwulu, of the Labour Party, have taken their appreciation to international shores with a Thank You Tour Abroad.

Nwulu’s objective mirrors that of his counterpart – to extend sincere gratitude to Imolites abroad for their unwavering solidarity during the governorship polls in Imo.

Nwulu had addressed thousands of Imo citizens in some States of the U.S, such as Maryland and Dallas.

A chieftain of the party in the State, Elder Ben Anyasodor, who spoke on the tour of the duo, described it as a testament to the resolute spirit of Achonu and Nwulu, who are committed to acknowledging and honouring the immense support received from Imo citizens both at home and abroad during the governorship election.
